Having an autistic child is not the end of the world--far from it. It is my hope that through this blog, at least a handful of people will get to understand that. My child is amazing, she brings us tremendous joy. We have good days & bad days, but we CHOOSE to focus on the good. Our belief is that by loving our daughter, giving her the most comfortable environment we can, and by most of all accepting her differences, she will continue to blossom--in her OWN way.


Karen McCarron Sentenced

Karen McCarron was sentenced to 36 years (prosecution had asked for 50 years) today in Illinois for the murder of her daughter, Katie. She will be 75 years old when she gets out of prison, and would then face a fine of $25,000 plus probation. From WMBD/WYZZ TV News Staff article:

State prosecutors remind the public of another number. The number 3. That's how old Katie was when she died.

Kevin Johnson, State Prosecutor says, "Their daughter, niece, grandchild, were murdered, don't know if they're ever going to be able to let that go.

I am glad that sentencing has finally occurred, and thankful Katie and her family have received some justice.

My thoughts are with Katie's family.
