About

Every day has its struggles. Some days have more than others. It’s important to experience those moments and truly feel them. It’s more important to recognize that while our struggles help to shape us, they don’t define us. Each challenge, each obstacle we face is a learning experience that invites us to grow.

My blog is an invitation to ride along on the Struggle Bus and experience my family’s journey.

As a wife and mom to three children, the youngest with autism, I’ve learned that living life “day by day” is not a possibility. The Struggle Bus runs at more of a “minute to minute” speed, and its jouney through unpredictability leads to frequent stops. These stops may seem scary at first glance, but there is something beautiful in each of them.

As your driver, I want you to know that no one ever faces a journey like this alone.

  1. Thank you so much for your editorial on understanding autism. Absolutely my son is not broken and he views and experiences and reacts to the world in his way. And don’t we all. Hallelujah to acceptance kindness and understanding.

  2. Dear Angela,

    My name is Kavita and I work for The Empowered Brain Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to transforming the way developmental disabilities are perceived and treated by society. I have been keeping up with some of your recent blog posts and just came across your HuffPo article about autism parenting – on behalf of my entire team, thank you so much for sharing your insight and contributing to the wider autism narrative!

    We are currently in the midst of a campaign called Faces of Autism in which we are profiling people on the spectrum as well as their families, friends, educators, therapists, and other peers. Would you be interested in sharing your narrative with our team members, and being featured on our website? We are based Cambridge, MA and would be happy to speak with you in person, or via phone call or video call! Please let me know. If you would like to see our collection thus far, you can find other stories on our FB page as well as by clicking the following link: http://bit.ly/ebi_foa

    Thank you for your time, and again for your passion for spreading tips about autism parenting! Parents like you inspire us to continue the work we do.

    All the very best,
    Kavita

  3. Hi! I am always in awe of moms who take care of kids and juggle chores and other things. Have you read the book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon?

    it’s a story written from the point of view of someone with autism. (it’s just a random thought, haha)

    I look forward to knowing more about your story in future posts! ❤
