We heard of autism, but didn't think it would be something that we would encounter directly. Autism became a part of our daily lives and routine in 2007. Just when we were getting a hang of it and what works best for our family, in 2011 we were once again faced with autism, but on an entirely different level. All that we thought we knew and learned went out the window. We had to gain new insights and knowledge to face our new situation. We were inspired to do something. Therefore, we designed t-shirts and other products that express parts of our everyday lives. Whether it is the way things are expressed, or just simply not being able to share thoughts or feelings verbally.
Autism can be difficult to deal with. What we find that helps the most is continuously gaining knowledge. Some of our key ingredients are: Being understanding, patient, loving, kind, honest and supportive. Sometimes it requires being out of your own body for a minute and seeing things from their view points. Understanding how individuals with autism think and what makes them happy or sad are major plus factors.
Eczema was something that affected the boys as well. We started a skincare line, because of what the chemicals in the prescribed medications did to their skins. Everything is homemade in small batches. Our products are all natural and can be used by everyone.
We hope we can help to bring more awareness to Autism through our website and through our products. Until everything connects, we have work to do. This is why a portion of our proceeds is donated to Autism education and research.
