from Sunny Rose's mom
Sunny amazes us every day with her very, very creative means of communications. She knows she does not communicate like the rest of us, but man, she sure is creative! I always wonder, how many children back in the "old" days were locked up, put away, abandoned or neglected because by the age of two or three, the child was visibly autistic, mute, cross-eyed, engaged in meaningless repetitive behaviors (or worse, no "behaviors" at all), and the children were deemed useless and "feeble-minded". We must have lost some amazing people back then, just because those children could not communicate in a way that made sense to the people in charge. Wow.
