I am a 41 years old mother of an autistic 15 old years teenager whose name is Andrei. We live in Romania. When my son was diagnosed as "different”, "autism" wasn't even used as diagnostic in my country. Things changed a bit since, but we are still far away from what we should offer to these kids. Andrei spent 7 years with me, home, without any specialized aid than the medication that was a "general" one for disabled kids. It was very hard, I needed help and my husband and I we were overwhelmed. The next seven years of our lives, he was accepted into a very new center here. Till he got used there I wasn't allowed to see him for 4 months. Slowly he started to learn to do things. It was a center for mentally and/or physically disabled children. There wasn't a specialized one for autistic. I was then allowed to take him home in weekends and during the holidays. I am very grateful to all personnel there who really did a great job for him. Now, starting with this passed summer, Andrei is home for good and I expect with emotion my next seven years together with my son. He goes out in the city with his sister; he's a great cook and does a great job in the house helping me. I have uploaded some pictures were you can see us. Andrei is painting now on glass. I have listed his works and also the works of my daughter and mine on eBay. I thought to donate 50% from our profit to various charities in US. I also have some listings with various Romanian blouse and skirts, parts of folk costumes listed for charity.
I also want to raise funds for the ONLY ONE Autistic Children Caring center in my town. It is called "Mara" Center. They need a LOT of things and a LOT of help to survive and offer quality services. I also added as charity here the AUTISM SOCIETY OF AMERICA . PLEASE DONATE HERE OR BUY OUR EBAY ITEMS. This is because I believe that every time you give, you receive back and that we are all linked one to another in this world, even we don't see our links yet, and also because I cannot rise funds direcly for the autistic children in my town here as it isn't an US based charity. Buying our ebay listings, you make it real : a part of the money will help both US charities and autistic kids in my town.
You can see our listings here :***cat/m.html and here :
Please be patients as I will continue my description these days.
