Images of Acceptance

This is my last 
#AutismAcceptance post for 2013. 
I took a photo of my MissG each day this month, 
to show what her life looks like when she is accepted just how she is. 
We do our best to adjust the environment around her and 
provide appropriate supports  to meet her needs. 
We try to avoid putting her in a position where she must 
change herself to blend in and appear like everyone else. 
To us, this is acceptance. 
These photos show what accepting her looks like at our house.
