April is Autism Awareness Month - a reprisal...

I'd like to revisit yesterdays subject in order to clear up something. I want to say that I'm afraid I portrayed our Church as being less than caring. This cannot be further from the truth. They are, and have always been, wonderful with Joshua. The purpose of my story was to show everyone how important education is.

There is always a period of adjustment whenever you enter any child into a new situation, much less an autistic child. Yesterdays post was my account of that period of adjustment. My hope is that the next autistic, or special needs child to come into our Church will have an easy time of blending right into the program. I think we all learned a lot from this experience and it's knowledge that is always there to draw upon in the future.

You didn't make your church sound less than caring, just not quite up to speed on Joshua's capabilities. I'm glad you were able to get his teacher in to help the learning curve.

And for the more current post, that yarn looks lovely unspun. Any plans for it when you do spin it?
