Merry Christmas from Age of Autism

Remember Avonte Oquendo This Christmas Day

Avonte Oquendo has been missing in New York City since October 4th when he was allowed to bolt out of his school.  Please take a moment to remember him, pray for him if so inclined, and for his family too. Christmas is about finding a safe place for your baby, is it not?  Let's hope for tidings of great joy for the Oquendo family - and soon.  Merry Christmas.  Kim

My wife & I are Brits but have posted this question on Facebook, and feel we should post it here as well:-

Why on earth hasn't the F.B.I. been called in?

Thank you Age of Autism for keeping this sweet boy's plight in the public eye! We need to all do our part to help in the search efforts near or far! The command center is always in need of flyers and donations to keep the search effort going. If any are interested they can go to the Official Help Find Avonte facebook page for more information.


O Thou Whose face is the object...

O Thou Whose face is the object of my adoration, Whose beauty is my sanctuary, Whose habitation is my goal, Whose praise is my hope, Whose providence is my companion, Whose love is the cause of my being, Whose mention is my solace, Whose nearness is my desire, Whose presence is my dearest wish and highest aspiration, I entreat Thee not to withhold from me the things Thou didst ordain for the chosen ones among Thy servants. Supply me, then, with the good of this world and of the next.

Thou, truly, art the King of all men. There is no God but Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.
