My name is Audrey Burt Saha, I am wife, mother of two, President & Founder of a charitable organization and an amateur athlete (runner/triathlete).
Throughout my life I have always found comfort in sharing my life journey with others, as a means to feel less alone, in my struggles. I found running which helped me manage my symptoms and allow me to focus on the positive things in my life. The birth of my daughter, Manisha was the happiest time for me. Shortly thereafter (17 months to be precise) my son Keyan was born. My husband and I couldn't believe how blessed we were to have a healthy baby girl and baby boy after struggling with infertility for several years, followed by a miscarriage.
When Keyan was only 1.5 years old life as we knew it would change forever.... That is when my sweet baby boy was officially diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
In spring 2018 I finally decided to take a leap of faith and write a BLOG entitled: "Autism Mama Bear". It is about the inner workings of my life as a mother to a boy with severe autism. The response was positive, and it gave me the courage to take the next step; to share my family's story, my work, my passions and my creativity.
As I try to help demystify autism, I’m also on a mission to cultivate a community of Mama Bears; women that represent the many shades of motherhood.
