Today we’d like to introduce you to Nichole Wilson.
Nichole, please share your story with us.
I am an Autism Mom and I started the foundation, Autism Moms Are Beautiful to uplift and encourage Autism Moms.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
As a single mom to an Autistic child, it’s been a struggle with finding me time and getting sleep. Once I was able to master working with my child on sleeping through the night, it was time for me to work on finding my special time to love and take care of myself. Mothers who are on this journey, I want to encourage you to trust yourself and continue to do the best you can.
We’d love to hear more about Autism Moms Are Beautiful.
