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.

Back to Square One

It’s been about two years since Cody actually began receiving day-hab services. After a long deliberation, Bill and I have decided to end them. 

Achieving Goals

A couple of weeks ago, Cody’s grandmother (who lives with us) became ill with an upper respiratory virus and was hospitalized twice inside of a week.
