I am not sure why i selected this elephant from the pile of colorful textures that day…and little did i know how symbolic this color blue would be for us —the birth of two boys, post-partum “blues” and a crying baby — diagnosed with Autism.

This elephant became kown as “BLUE” by my son Luke.

Both are almost 10 now. BLUE has changed shades a bit, is missing a eye, has been left in the rain, wiped tears, sneaked in a schoolroom or two, & has made our struggles shine as bright as the sky!
