Robin's mom sent us this story from Minnesota: Autistic Boy Banned From Church
I did not see a Dad in the story here, likely he removed himself from the family because of the son, we hear of this a lot. Makes me mad and sad that Dads don't stick around. I hope that this is not the situation for this family and that they just didn't get Dad on camera.
We take ALL the children to our church. Ammon and Sarah go to a 'special needs' Sunday school class along with another boy who is Autistic. Mary used to go as well, but has adjusted and is now able to attend classes with other 3 year olds.
However, when it is time for the sacrament or congregational meeting we swap off taking the 3 youngest back home while the other parent attends with the 3 oldest. Just another in life's challenges for parents of children with Autism.
(BTW: where are the 4 people, see the poll, that have said they will watch our children so we can post more often? ; )
