Our journey has taken us to an amazing place! Somewhere that seemed unimaginable just 5 years ago. I had so many ideas of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to accomplish 5 years ago. I was just unsure exactly what I should do to get to the place I knew I wanted to go and was meant to go.
That all changes when Greyson was about 3.5 years old. Greyson’s autism and our journey really gave me a whole new perspective. I realized I could, and would make autism my life work. I wanted to make a difference in peoples lives and knew this would be the way to do it. This revelation gave me so much purpose. The purpose I previously lacked and was holding me back. This was a purpose that was greater than me. Helping others in the world of autism.
This is when we started Building The Puzzle, our brand. We launched this blog, started a vlog, started a support group and of course our podcast. All to help other families of children with autism. I wrote a children’s book about autism, “Every Frog is Special.” We started, The Speech Paradigm, which provides in home Speech Therapy, as well as a sensory toy company called, Greyson & Company.
Alex and I had finally found our mission and purpose in life! I never felt the type of drive or serenity that I had during that time. I was at peace knowing we were doing God’s work, what we were meant to do. Not just here to support Greyson, but to help any and all people that are affected by Autism.
