On the evening of April 2nd, 2010 Jennifer turned on her porch light - it lit up a beautiful blue. She looked up and down the street, and saw how it stood out - how beautifully it shined amongst all the white lights that dotted her street.  That blue light... that singular, beautiful blue light encompassed all that she felt for her daughter. Her pride in who she is.

Well this year Jennifer hopes to have over 350 homes and buildings light up blue to spread autism awareness! That's an incredible momma huh??? To find out more, please visit her blog Fasten Her Seatbelt!
