The Thinking Moms’ Children

 

To us, these children are more than a number. They are our world.

They are the reason for everything we do. The research. The healing. The REVOLUTION.

In their simple messages, volumes are spoken.

We’re here.  We’re listening.  We’re fighting.

    INCREDIBLE!!! Such a powerful video. Each one of those signs… I could see my own son holding. Thank you for being a voice not only to our children, but also to the families in this fight! God bless you all!

    Crying too! All these children may be on different waves of the spectrum but their eyes say the same thing my son’s eyes say to me everyday…”I’m in here, come get me! ” I’ll never stop trying Baby, never.

    Started to watch this before I took the boy to school. I had to stop because my tears always send him into a spin. So moving and so beautiful. You are all making a difference.

    It’s all about Pharma companies, Insurance companies, News Media and Politicians. In 2000, Autism was 1 in 149 children. Mostly boys – about 75%. In 2010 – 1 in 81; 2020 projection is 1 in 56 and 2028 projection is 1 in 41. This is an epidemic on a greater level than Aids or Polio. Yet where are the News Media, the Politicians or even the Pastors? They are afraid of the Pharma companies and their money. See the table below. How long before we reach 1 in 2? Think. THINK. THINK!!!!

      so true , my daughter was dx in 2000 , she was 4 , I refused to medicate her ! Now at 18, she will graduate HS on time and enter college in the fall. I am so glad I took this path , these kids are not lab rats. I speak to some parnets who have their kids on such complicated medicine cocktails and they wonder why they arent able to function.

  14. Jean V. says:

    Tears in my eyes, thanks for all you are doing…

  22. luvbugtmr says:

    NEVER doubt that a small group of THOUGHTFUL, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
    I love each of these kids as if they were my own. I cry every time I see this video – today out of frustration that the “powers that be” could not give one crap about this crisis we are dealing with daily – unless it were to mess with their bottom line.
    But most of the other times, I cry that “love cry” – the one where you see the beauty of the child, you understand the significance of where they are standing in the picture or why they are holding their specific sign. I cry because I see their mom’s face/determination/smile ~ and I love her so much. But mostly I’ve cried with pride over how strong, brave and undaunted these kids are ~ everyday.

    The 1 in 88 doesn’t include my child, in fact it doesn’t include any child diagnosed after 2009

  47. lmartin359 says:

    Showed the video to my HS students followed by the question “What will you do to help a special needs/autistic child?” After they stopped crying and after an awsome discussion here are just a few of the things they vowed to do:
    volunteer at a hosp peds unit
    volunteer at a special needs preschool
    invite a fellow student to eat lunch with them
    not laugh if someone asks a silly question
    be more understanding
    stick up for a child being teased
    Thanks for making a difference! =)

    • mamabear TMR says:

      That is a great start. This generation of children will need strong teachers and advocates to fight for them. Thank you for showing it to your students.

  48. mamabear TMR says:

    These children are the future. They have a voice…..even if they can’t speak. We will continue to fight for them, until they are well enough to fight for themselves. We will beat autism. We will prevail. We have started the revolution….and we will never stop fighting. I am so proud of all the Thinking Moms out there. ❤
