Our story began in 2006, when our son Donovan was born. My husband and I embraced every moment, every smile, and every step, and we decided another child would complete this perfect picture. In 2005, Donovan welcomed a little sister, Charlotte, and we continued to celebrate all of the wonderful milestones that come along with infants and toddlers. During this time, however, we realized that Donovan was not yet speaking and very often seemed withdrawn.  At 23 months old, he was diagnosed with autism and our lives were forever changed.
Fortunate to know professionals in pediatrics and early childhood education, we were offered support, guidance, and direction. As our family worked through those early trials, I witnessed the challenges of other families increasing around me. I began to search for some way to make a difference; a way to raise awareness and funds needed to support children like my own.
As a parent of an autistic recognize the need for the education of parents and families of affected children. By understanding resources available to them, parents can eliminate fear and become empowered to make the best choices for their children. Sweet Charlottes is my overture to generate support for the creation of such efforts.

It is a warm and welcoming place. It was not overwhelming for my baby like some play places can be. It is a relaxed atmosphere, no loud noises. Ultimately, I left the final verdict up to my 3-year-old, Emma. Even after about an hour and a half, she did not want to leave. She worked her way through each room, playing with a variety of toys; from legos to doll houses to a play kitchen. Sure, we have most of those toys at home, but, this is a place where she can meet and play with other children. She did just that, too. A few other girls her age were there to play, too.

WKBD NEWS | Love without Words

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) – Geared towards ALL children, “Love without Words” tells the story that love is truly active and can be demonstrated in all of our interactions; love is greater than just three words.

It is a book written with all children and families in mind, but to further support autism awareness, a donation will be made to autism awareness with every book sold.

Author Molly O’Malley Pitman is the mother of two children, a boy and girl. Her son who has autism gave her the opportunity to truly appreciate the significance of communication. It was when her children’s own relationship began to evolve that she started to see an even greater love that cannot be expressed in just three words.

Molly’s business Sweet Charlotte’s is a play center for kids with all abilities and challenges.

“Love without Words” can be found at Sweet Charlotte’s or on amazon.
