This is the third year that AutismUp is hosting KiteFlite. AutismUp is an organization that means a tremendous amount to our family. It is a local organizaton, which means all funds raised stay here in Rochester to provide local families with support and programs. When your child is diagnosed with autism (let alone two children), you feel overwhelmed and alone. AutismUp is there for families to combat those feelings by providing information, support and programs in a supportive, welcoming environment. Finding a community of families that share your experience and can lend a supportive hug and words of encouragement is invaluable. I am incredibly lucky to be able to pay it forward through AutismUp through my work every day. Being able to provide the same support and information to other parents that I received when my kids were younger is a tremendoud thing. I am thankful every day for AutismUp. Thank you for supporting AutismUp and our family.
