Yay!  I finally am able to post a new thread, it took me a few days, lol.  

Just wanted to recomend a book to you all.  Many of you may have read the blogs about the little boy Ben, an autistic child who grew up loving Snow Whites Scary Adventure last spring when SWSA closed forvever.  His dad, Ron Miles, published a book that the proceeds will pay for Bens continuing care as he ages called "3500: An Autistic Boy's Ten-Year Romance with Snow White".  It is a great book for the Disney lover/mom/educator set.  It's a quick read, although heavy at times due to the nature of the subject but full of heart warming tales of Disney cast members going above and beyond the call of duty.  The end nearly killed me though, if you're the type who cries at Wishes...you might want tissues handy!

I read the gentleman's blog.  I have to admit, it made me tear up.  I work with individuals with Developmental Disabilities, and every couple of years our company will escort several clients to Disney.  It amazes me what Disney does to make the trip easy and special.

I teach at a school with a large population of students with Autism and I am a Disney freak, this book was right up my ally. It was wonderful. I guess I need to find his blog.
