Happy New Year From Mexico

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Estee on 31-12-2008

Adam and I wish all our friends a very happy new year as we enjoy some well-deserved sun and ocean along the Mayan Riviera. We fed fish bananas, we are swimming with dolphins, swimming in caves and this mom is going to the Mayan Temples to pray to any one who may be listening…hopefully it won´t entail any slave to be slaughtered to the gods on the altar. I don´t believe in those kinds of sacrifices :)

Anyway, here we are, just Adam and I this year and it may take me another year or so to think about the year that just passed.

Wishing health, optimism and happiness to everyone. Thank you to all the folks who sent me hundreds of messages (I just discovered them on Facebook today) on why they joined TAAProject (www.taaproject.com). These will be going in our next Newsletter.

Thank you also to those of you who have written to me personally. I believe in the power of the Internet and the connections we have made with one another — many of you I have met in person over the years. Thanks for all your support. I just think you are all so amazing!

About Me


I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
