When Our Children Are Abused

It happens. It's one of our worst fears concerning our children: that the people we entrust to care for them will harm them, and it's happened to Kim Stagliano's family. She writes about it at Huffington Post this weekend.

I'd encourage all our bloggers to drop by the post and offer their support to Kim and her family; they've had to live with this knowledge and the aftermath since May without discussing it with the wider online autism community, and I'm sure that kind words will let her know that her family is not alone, that we are all united in making sure our children are safe from abuse, that we support each other through difficult times.

Thank you.

Don't have a Huffington account, but I know that Huffington is writing a new book and have read it.

as for "no sense of reality" on Twitter ...

She is still unable to say much, for various reasons. I'm sure support helps. I want to throw up. Thanks Kim.

How horrible and yes, I am sure it happens all the time. I hope they can get through this. That is why I started http://autismunity.com so we can stick together.
