5 Emmys - Happy Birthday Temple Grandin!
Thank you Temple, for your gift to us, autistic families worldwide. You and the HBO team worked hard to bring your inspiring dramatic story to the screen and bring autism awareness to the public. I was particularly touched during your speech when you asked your mom to be recognized as your inspiration. I'm certain all autism moms shed a few tears of gratitude, especially for the moms of nonverbal children who may never hear those beautiful words spoken. Kudos to moms! Kudos to you! Enjoy your birthday, and your new status as a multi-Emmy winner, Temple!
If you don't know Temple Grandin, here's a good intro via an Emmy article.
