The Cause

My own little Onyx Stone, Blake, was born in 2002 and as each of his layers are uncovered, I became more and more inspired to share all that he has taught me about the many paths of Autism. Through our continuing journey into his world, Blake has brought me to a new awareness and I want to share a glimpse into the ever changing colors of my rare gem. Because of Blake we have created AU Autism Awareness bracelet.
