We had a visitor to our church today, she is looking for a Sunday School and church community to join. Her five year old daughter has High-Functioning Autism (HFA). The look of relief on this mother's face when I could assure her we wouldn't give up on finding a way for her daughter to fit in with us, that we'll meet her where she's at, is something I soon won't forget. She hasn't been to a church in over a year because she felt self-conscious of her daughter's behaviors. But they both seemed happy and excited when they left today. The little girl is verbal, but has very poor eye contact. She also sensory seeks by touch and smell. I already have a squishy ball for her to play with during class. She's absolutely beautiful and the other kids took to her right away. I thank the member's of this board for all of the information they have given over the years. You all are the greatest.
