Madeline Andrews developed Stephen’s Light for her son whose life was cut short at just four years old. Andrews is ensuring that the impact Stephen had on the world around him would continue. The Stephen’s Light organization promotes autism awareness and acceptance through spreading kindness and good deeds in Stephen’s memory.
Today Stephen’s mom visited a group of children who remember him well. Stephen was their classmate, and Andrews wanted to make sure that each of them would be able to take home a book of train stories.
Mrs. Rozar’s Pre-K class is not the only class benefiting from Stephen’s Light. His mom explains,
“Stephen was autistic, and he loved trains so we had a fundraiser to buy books about trains, inclusion, and acceptance. We are donating them to every class in the building (Quitman Lower Elementary), but each child in Mrs. Rozar’s class is getting a book about trains because this was Stephen’s class. “
Anyone fortunate enough to witness the connection between Stephen’s mom and his friends can easily see the impact Stephen had in the short life he lived.
Now his mom, his friends, and his teachers will share the light he left with them.
His impact won’t stop here.
