Mafe Maria: Personal stories by autism parent mentor, Maria Stultz

Our Journey (part 2)

Continuing the story we shared last year, this video documents the last 12 months in Joaquin’s Son-Rise Program. Although Joaquin’s growth has been (and continues to be) amazing, this is mostly a tribute to the beauty of the process and the extraordinary people that have joined hands with us building and providing an optimal growing environment for our little wonder.

BTW, we’re still looking for new volunteers to join us :)
