N.J. Child Helps Raise Autism Awareness

Kim Cristo did not know much about autism two years ago, so no one is more surprised than she that her daughter's photo is now helping to raise awareness about the disorder through an Internet campaign.

The borough resident is pleased that an image of her 3-year-old daughter, Ava, photographed by Keith Hopkins, who has a studio in town, is being used in an effort called "Stories of Autism," by a Seattle, Wash.-based non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness, acceptance and inclusion of autism through photography.
