Today my 11 yo son, who has autism, went to return a shopping trolley at Cooma Woolworths after I unloaded my groceries. It was a short distance from our car and he assured me he was fine, but he got lost. We hadnt been to Cooma before.
I was beside myself! Without hesitation and without me asking, there were 3 staff members walking the streets with me looking for him. He was missing for half an hour but found safe and well 2 blocks away, although quite frightened at being lost. One staff member even jumped in his car to help look.
I am so grateful and impressed with their willingness to help. Thank you to everyone who did. I don't know your names but you certainly deserve a huge high five from us.
Thank you, Brooke and Aiden.
