Michele Langlo is a wife, freelance journalist, digital artist, and mother to a twenty-five year old son, Cody, who's autistic.

Though not every moment of Cody's life growing up has been the easiest, Michele wouldn't give a moment of it away. Cody is a gift from God to Michele, and has taught her more about life than any other single individual she knows.

Michele and her husband, Bill, said their vows over twenty years ago, and are still going strong.

Michele loves to ride horses and Harleys. She loves fishing and hunting, hiking and camping. She enjoys cooking--especially Italian food. But most importantly, she is a devout Christian who owes everything to God for the multitide of blessings he has given her.


Grace Under Pressure

When Cody is sick it is sometimes difficult to tell. If he isn’t coughing, sniffling, throwing up, running a fever or passing out we may not know if he is ill. 

Giving Back

Cody continues to do well in his day program. Staff members are able to keep him engaged in activities throughout the entire day, which is commendable as no other provider has ever achieved that. 

Talking the Talk

Cody has a new found determination to extend his vocabulary. And over the last couple of months he’s provided us with many teachable moments on which we have been able to capitalize.

Starting the Journey

Over the last year or so I’ve talked to parents who have children that have been newly diagnosed with ASD.

Love and Marriage

Cody has had an interest in the opposite sex for quite a long time now. 

Teasing Miss Stephanie

Cody has become very fond of most all the staff at his day program.
