Life With Autism In Footage However Banned on Fb
Note: Our friend Michelle Guppy has shared her journey with Brandon for many years. She has a raw, honest blog called Life With Autism In Pictures. Yesterday, she tried to post one of her blog entries on her Facebook page, and Facebook would not let her.

I couldn’t even Tweet Tanner Welsh’s obituary from AofA because Twitter now marks ALL of our Tweets as “sensitive.” I even Tweeted a Bundt cake – a sensitive Bundt cake. But we all keep going – including Michelle and her family.

As I have desperately tried to navigate this unfamiliar and unwanted bump in the road so to speak – I am deeply grateful for the NDCQ motto that I have embraced thanks to being introduced to the Navy SEAL world of FORGED warriors and their NEVER QUIT mentality – not to mention the Survival, Evasion, Resistance, & Escape (SERE) training of Matt’s Navy journey that began ten years ago…
“The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday” has been proven to be true in my life in so many ways….. except I might add, for warrior families like mine, there seem to be no easy days…… …
(I mean really, don’t we warrior moms wish upon wishes that our “Hell Week” lasted only a week?)
Which brings me to this picture I captured a few days ago while driving my son to his Adult Day Program… Read more here.
