Austin's Cones Still Waiting For His Return
Ever since Austin was little, he was obsessed with cones. He and Grampie often went to Home Depot together. Austin always spotted the cones and wouldn't let Grampie leave the store without buying him at least two. It must have been the bright orange color that caught his eye.
The top picture of Austin was taken at Silver Lake State Park while on an outing with St. Charles Childrens Home, while he was in the captivity of the State of New Hampshire. He spotted the bright orange cone out near the dock and decided he had to have it. While he wasn't being watched, he attempted to get out to the dock to retrieve it. Luckily, there were other people there who saw what he was trying to do and stopped him before he drowned. They in turn swam out and got the cone for him literally saving his life.
Austin's Mother, by some coincidence or maybe even fate, moved into the same building where the woman lived. On her wall, she had this picture of Austin. Little did she know she would ever meet up with his Mother. My daughter was shocked when she saw the picture of her son hanging on the woman's wall. The woman was shocked when she found out she met Austin's Mother.
The woman proceeded to tell my daughter all about that fateful day when she and her husband saved Austin's life and retrieved the cone that he wanted so badly. She told my daughter how Austin wasn't being watched by anyone from the Children's Home. That they had no idea Austin had wandered off alone, while in the custody of the State who was supposed to be "Protecting" him. They know nothing about protecting children. All they know is how to destroy.
My daughter and my family are so thankful to this woman and her husband for saving Austin's life, though we have no clue about the life he lives now. In fact, we have no idea if Austin is alive or dead, knowing how well the State "Protect's" the children they steal.
Hopefully, one day soon Austin will be returned, alive and well and he can see that Grampie is still collecting cones for him. We have no idea what happened to all the big cones Grampie bought for him. We don't know if his stepfather threw them out with everything else Austin owned, or if by some chance they were given to him at St. Charles. Hopefully some day Austin will be able to tell us. That is if all the drug's the State is forcing him to take don't affect his memory of his happy life before DCYF!
