My younger sister has two little boys who have autism. As you can imagine, every day is full of challenges for her family, but recently this has been multiplied because one of her boys is now dealing with some related health issues and was even hospitalized. He is home now and recovering, and medication seems to be helping somewhat, which everyone is very relieved about. However, this will be an on-going issue for them to deal with.
As a way to send some virtual hugs, I decided to send a few amigurumi toys, a teddy for the youngest who has been ill and a dog for my older nephew who has been a major trooper while his mom and dad have had to be hyper-focused on his brother.
Here is hoping they give them a little comfort.
