Josiah's story

Some friends of our family have a 3-year old son, who at age 2 started to develop Autism. They created a video of his story, and for every person that views the video, $.04 will be donated to finding a cure. If you have a minute, take a look—it’s a great cause and a heart wrenching story.

OH MY GOSH DI...how emotional I became while watching this video. My heart goes out to Josiah's parents. It is so hard when you are a parent...I know what that feeling is like...you would give your all for your child if only it would make them better. Thank you for sharing this precious story. I will pray for little Josiah and his family for more healing.

Love,
Stephanie

Hi. Josiah's momma here. Thanks so much for passing on our story to your circle of influence. We appreciate the prayers, support, and awareness it brings to families dealing with autism. Few people know that it effects 1 in 150 kids in the US and a whopping 1 in 81 in MN. We're praying for a great outcome so we can pass on hope to other parents!

Blessings!
