About 7 years ago I walked out of my church and never went back. My son has autism and he would hand flap and rock in church. One day one of the deacons said to me "We think it might be a good idea if you didn't bring him to church as he is distracting, but please keep bringing him to Sunday School, we are hoping that teacher quits."
I was devestated. I went to a few other churches, without my son, but most of the Sunday school teachers seemed hesitant to have him in their class and I admit, I was too afraid to try.
I have another child now and I've been thinking a lot about going to church again. I know I do not want to go back to the place that clearly made me unwelcome, but I was raised in that church and I have no idea how to find another church. Most of my friends are Catholic and I am not or they live too far away, so I can't ask friends. How do I find one that will accept us?
