Whitney marched all over the place making all kinds of new friends. She cruised around in her walker all morning until finally her little legs gave out and she rode the rest of the way in the stroller. Along the way she got to play with Geoffrey the Giraffe, a Dalmatian riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle and some guys from Star Wars.
I was really impressed with the amazing support from friends and the community. Autism affects roughly 1 in 150 children in the US so it's much more common than 1p36 Deletion Syndrome, but we found common ground with many of the parents Melanie and I talked with.
It was great experience and all for a very good cause.
