Prayers and Good Thoughts Requested May 9, 2009

On April 25th, I wrote a post about my Aunt Angie’s visit. Please read it now, if you haven’t already.

I was a little exasperated by the way she played with Fabio constantly, but in a way that was too “in his face” and therefore frustrating to him at times. She kept trying to connect with him.  I was frustrated at how hard it is to teach someone how to play with an autistic child…and at the fact that playing even has to be taught.

What Fabio really responded to was the way my Aunt Angie just loved him. It was when she would back off that he’d seek her out for hugs or kisses. And I’ll never forget the memory of Fabio climbing into her bed in the morning and her responding by simply … instinctively… covering him up with the blanket and drawing him into her side for a snuggle.

Ten days after she went back home to Pennsylvania, she suffered a massive stroke.

For those who are so inclined, please pray for my aunt’s recovery.

The world can not afford to lose someone like her. Fabio can’t either.
