This story is upsetting. Â It is about a mother who has two young children ages two and five. Â Her son was five and her daughter was two. Â Both of her children were autistic. Â She wanted to be rid of them and she wanted normal children.
This mother tried to get her two children to drink bathroom cleaner but they would not swallow it. Â She then found a wire and strangled them. Â Her son was pronounced dead at the hospital and her daughter was on life support until taken off on Wednesday.
She did not want children with autism. Â She did not want to deal with the problems herÂ children had anymore. Â She wanted normal children and now she is charged with capital murder. Â There is nothing more horrendous than a mother killing her own children.
Children with autism can be challenging from the time they wake up until the time they fall asleep at night. Â There is a part of these children that were innocent not just by their age but by their autism. Â This is truly a heartbreaking story of two innocent children taken way too soon.
There is help for those who have children with autism. Â There are services and treatments that can be of great assistance to the families. Â She did not have to kill them she just did not have to kill them.
