Welcome! I’m Katie

Hi! My name is Katie Lira-Luna and I am an avid writer who began blogging as a form of therapy to cope with my son’s Autism diagnosis. The Autism spectrum is a vast wonderland that is not easy to navigate alone so I knew I needed to learn as much as I could as quickly as I could in order to best support my son and myself. Now armed with knowledge and my own personal experiences in raising a child with Autism, my goal is to share the wealth! I am a staunch advocate for my son and the Autism community and I want my blog to serve as a platform for Autism awareness so that it may pave the way for more empathy and acceptance. My hope is that my words can serve as a source of comfort and support for other Autism families because we are all in this together. So, come along with me as I traverse through the world of Autism with my amazing son, Nico.

There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do instead of what he cannot do.

I like the wine and not the label.
