We were so excited to get a call on Thursday asking if we would come down onto the field for the beginning of the game to represent Autism Speaks and SARRC as a family with Autism. The Diamondbacks did an Autism Awarenss day on Friday. They set up a playground for children with Autism, they had several sections reserved for families with Autism and served gluten-free food. We had such a blast being down on the field and when they announced our names and had us up on the JumboTron Recker was so excited!! Recker did better than we could have ever imagined. We had the best seats behind home base and Recker stood there so well and ate bugles, cotton candy and lemonade! We were so grateful and honored to be asked to do this!
[Recker loved being down on the field, seeing all the
players and the mascots. I was so surprised the sound
and lights didn't bother him more.]

[i love that he insists on always holding both of our hands]
