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.

Public Privacy

As we all know, many levels of autism wreak havoc on adherence to what are considered social norms in the neurotypical society. 

The Tell-Tale Heart

Two weeks ago, I had barely gotten out of bed when the phone rang. It was Bill. He had worked an overnight shift and just before his night was about to end he began to feel cold and clammy.

Grounded in Reality

My son is normally a gentle, sweet-hearted, curious young man who loves to learn, and be liked and loved, as well as to like and love others. 

Change is Good

Monday was the last day of work for Stephen, Cody’s Occupational Tech. 

Home Alone

As of right now, Cody doesn’t stay at home by himself. But that day will come and we have to make sure he is prepared. 

Frightening Questions

Monday morning, my sweet son became violently ill and then collapsed.
