Warner Robins mom with 2 autistic kids talks disease's challenges
WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- April is National Autism Awareness month. Angela McCormick of Warner Robins says having multiple children with varying degrees of autism means they need constant supervision.
McCormick says doing simple tasks, like grocery shopping, is almost impossible. She says her children can't go anywhere with crowds without special sunglasses and headphones.
Her hope is one day they will be more interactive.
"You are living with a stranger in your house," McCormick said. "And you hope someday they will look at you and go 'I love you mom.' Those mean the greatest things to us."
McCormick says people with autism don't convey love the same way, and this was hard for her to understand at first.
