You never know what curve balls life is going to throw at you. I didn't know I would fall in love with a woman who had a wonderful son. (He was 11 years old when we got married.) I never knew I'd be so well known for voice acting. (I thought I'd be a filmmaker.) And I never knew that the beautiful daughter born to my wife and I would have autism. She's almost five years old now and her name is Lily. (That's a picture of her with in the hat. My hat, for the record.) With the support of my wife Alese, my son Quinn, my parents, my in-laws, and a barrage of doctors and therapists, Lily is doing better today than any one of us ever thought she would when we first noticed things weren't right almost four years ago.

Links about Autism
ARI - Autism Research Institute
A friend of mine from up in New York sent me this link yesterday. It's a brand new study that just came out of South Korea and it is one of the most comprehensive studies on autism that has ever been done. It is a fascinating and scary article.
My family and I are participating in a walk on November 12, 2011 for Autism Speaks to raise money for autism research. My daughter lives with it every day which means my whole family lives with it every day. Please click the link below and donate any amount to help us contribute to finding a cure for this baffling disorder. Thanks to all of you for you kindness and help.
Just here to drop a little link that I found on a great website that has an autism fact sheet. For anyone who wants to know more about the subject, here you go.
