New Bedford grandmother’s faith in humanity restored by treatment of grandaughter with autism

image_pdfimage_print

“So today from 1:30pm to 4:00pm I took my granddaughters to Harrington Park on Court St. New Bedford.

Amariannah has been bullied there a few times by children but because she is autistic it’s hard for her to understand what these children are doing or saying. This is her favorite park and if you know anything about Autism then you know that change is not easy for her.

I would like to thank the parents of another girl there today as coincidentally her name is also Amariannah. This other child stood up for my granddaughter and told the other kids to stop laughing and saying things to my granddaughter. She even followed her to tell her they have the same name.

Thank you for raising your daughter to stand up for other kids and especially the special needs kids ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ’™.”-Jennifer Lee Staples-Villegas.

  2. What a wonderful, kind gesture. Very refreshing in the world today. Great job for the upbringing of both children. That day was a good day, may their days only be better in the tomorrow’s to come.
