Autism: President's Choice Children's Charity: (Superstore) Helping Local Families.

My girl's best friend
I recently had the opportunity to meet a very important superhero named Adam Hues. Adam works at the local Super Store, as the store manager.

But I am getting way ahead of myself, let me start from the beginning.

Our beautiful girl and her trusty sidekick love to be outside together. like any child, she is adventurous, daring and has a penchant for animals. Her love for nature and the great outdoors has been quite limited due to the fact that we live by a dangerous body of water.

Her sidekick that fluffy ball of energy has a keen eye for his girl. He is highly skilled at keeping her safe and secure. He is however when not working and out of harness a dog, and being such, has a love for chasing critters...wildlife ...or chickens...He is, after all, a poodle, and poodles are retriever type dogs, historically they were bred for wild game hunting, and they are very good at it too!

Don't get me wrong this poodle is something special, he can calm a meltdown before it starts, he can soothe a bad day with his warm and comforting "hug" This dog is one of a kind special.

My girl would be lost without him!
Frankly, so would our family.
He is truly my girls "best friend" Always present, always loving and non-judgemental.
Children on the spectrum often have a hard time developing these kinds of relationships with their peers.
Autism Assistance Dog guides are phenomenal at bridging the gap. Kids bond with and are able to have a relationship that they may never otherwise experience. These dogs are remarkable in skill and ability, making a child with Autism's life more meaningful and enjoyable.

Families truly experience a new "leash" on life, often finally getting to go out without the added concern of safety issues, as these dogs are taught to keep children safe from running away when frightened or having a meltdown.

Our family has been hyper-vigilant trying our best to keep everyone safe and secure, and due to the safety concerns the yard was not always a safe place to play. This is where Adam Hues and President's Choice Children's charity came in.

I had applied to Children's Charity to see if we could secure funding to help us build a safety fence. I didn't really know what to expect since I had never done anything like this before.
I was completely blown away when Adam himself called and told us the good news! I literally had no was such an amazing moment!

I can't say enough about how this simple fence has changed our lives for the better, we no longer feel the underlying panic of a possible escape and we all can relax just a little bit knowing everyone is safer.

I also want to thank the dedicated and professional people at True Line Fencing their skills and dedication to quality have provided our family
with a custom fence that is secure and lockable. Ben and his team listened to our needs and designed a workable system that keeps everyone safe and secure. Thank you True Line fencing. You can visit his website at the above link.

So what do you say to a superhero?
I have no words other than...

Thank you, Adam Hues!
