Once again, KarelJ is hosting a wonderful themed blog hop. We are honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the hop is being held January 15, 16 and 17. The theme is simple: I Have a Dream.
“The Grand Prize Blog Candy is the Dreams Come True Cartridge, donated by an anonymous donor!! In order to be eligible to win, you need to leave a comment on each and every stop on the hop, along with a way to contact you.

I chose to make a 2 page layout about my son. As a parent, all of our dreams become dreams for our children. Everyone who knows me understands that my son holds all my biggest dreams. My dreams for him are different than most parent's dreams for their 20 year children. I dream of a day when people will see my son for the person he is, not his Autism. I understand how hard that can be for people we pass in the streets. He is different, his reaction to life's experiences is unlike yours or mine. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, either. He doesn't know about hatred or cruelty. He doesn't care what color your skin is. It doesn't matter to him how much money you make, or what kind of house or car you own. He is not pre-disposed to any opinions, good or bad. When he meets you, most likely if you show him kindness, he will befriend you. Of course I dream of the day when he will speak. I try not to be greedy and want it all, but I can't help but dream of the day when there will be a cure for Autism. I pray it will be in my lifetime.
I have been fighting the flu for the past week now, so I am making an unusually short post, please accept my apology. Hopefully, I will be able to update the post before the weekend is over.
From here you are heading to Jessica at Overjoyed Scrapper http://www.overjoyedscrapper.blogspot.com/
I know she will have an amazing project to share with you. While you are there, take a look at her blog, it is really wonderful.
I hope everyone has a great Holiday weekend!
