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.

Going with the Flow

Recently I wrote about how Cody’s fear of thunderstorms used to wreak havoc with anyone in the house who wanted to sleep through the night. 

Social Inclination

Cody in a crowded mall, a noisy restaurant or a social scene where chaos runs amuck used to spell disaster. 

Sleeping Through the Storms

Living in Missouri presents a number of predicaments for all who reside within its boundaries. 

Making the Grade

We just had Cody’s first quarterly meeting with the staffing supervisor of Cody’s new service provider and Cody’s case worker. And it went well!

Like Mother, Like Son?

With the advances in research being made in finding what causes autism, more and more evidence is being discovered that points to genetics as a key factor.
