Micah Burns

This month Marlene and I begin a new <iHs>< adventure by starting Team Micah's JOY (Just Older Youth). We are attempting to organize a team of senior adults to help younger adults, that live first-hand with the challenges of raising a child with Autism. Please consider becoming a team member and walk with us, or donate to our efforts.

Autism Speaks is a organization dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders, to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, and to advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. It was founded in February 2005 by Suzanne and Bob Wright, the grandparents of a child with autism.

Our Walk Now Event - Baltimore, MD is Saturday, October 4, 2008 at Burdick Field @ Towson State University. Please consider becoming a team member and walk with us, or donate to our efforts. Together let's become a small part of this puzzle and experience the power of many individuals united by a single cause.
Lord, may our efforts be like yours at the Pool of Bethesda; the house of grace, as the infirm are granted healing only by the mercy of others (John 5:1-16). The Bible teaches that God helps those who can not help themselves. For example, through Christ (the living water), God gives us the free gift of eternal life. Nobody can do that for themselves, apart from Jesus the Christ.

Life is Like a Train Ride. <-- All Aboard!
Life -- What a great ride from its beginning to end here on earth,
and then it's non-stop through all eternity,
with the God of the Bible as its conductor!

It's a song from a personal place. I'm in Here
will touch people's hearts and help
raise funds and awareness for autism.

A known but not known enough cause of non-familial autism is older paternal age. This fact should be communicated to everyone.
