Mafe Maria: Every story has a happy ending if we give it enough time

Our Journey (so far)

This is an ode to Joaquin, and Joey, and Eliza, and me. To the amazing adventure we’ve lived during the last seven months after discovering Joaquin’s autism. It goes also to my Son-Rise family: Everybody at the Autism Treatment Center of America, and all the “beacons of light”… The mothers and fathers, and volunteers working every day in playrooms around the world.

Joaquin’s Adventure

Welcome to my parent mentoring service

Hello, you extraordinary mom of an Awesome autistic child.

Intentional parenting, development, and education for our children is my passion, and I’d love to help you thrive—not survive—as you reach for every outcome you dream of for you and your child’s life.
