The band Five for Fighting will donate 40 cents to children's autism research for each time this video is viewed online:
Be warned, I watched it with my very verbal and communicative toddler on my lap and I cried. Karoline was signing "baby" and "doggie" and "singing" along with the music. She was "talking" to me the whole time. I've seen the silence of autism. I've watched the frustration of being unable to communicate. I know the names and beautiful faces of autism and I've wept with the mothers who desperately want a different world for their children. What kind of world do we want? One where all children can tell us what they want, need, feel and one where we can tell them how much we love them. And be understood.
