Elliott Richard Opens Up About God and Autism

Elliott Richard sat down on the steps and just unloaded. He is apparently very deeply effected by what is going on with his family. He has formed these opinions entirely on his own. I didn’t really address anything because I wanted to hear what he had to say. It’s amazing how articulate he is at only 4 yrs old.


Elliott Richard is basically saying he is mad at God because of all the challenges his brothers and him mommy have been given. He talks about wanting to build a robot God and teach it the words to tell the original God to clap his hands and let Emmett John talk and Gavin understand. He is very sweet.

        I think as adults we forget that childrens views are made up of what they actually see and the way they understand things. Robots make sense to ER (obviously lol – pehaps too many video games? 😉 ) and God seems to be this unreachable person/aspect to him. So he's making it make sense to him while telling you he's mad at God and why. 🙂 (pardon my slightly drugged state lol- I'm waiting for meds to kick in fully) and by the way – I think he is bound to pick up "traits" because of what he sees and how he tries to connect with Gavin. I'm sure Lizze shared my thoughts on that! 😉
