It's like having a guardian angel watching over him
As a parent of a child with autism, I have always worried about Ethan’s safety when he is out of my sight. But with AngelSense, I can monitor his location in real-time and receive alerts if he goes outside of a predetermined safe zone.
It’s like having a guardian angel watching over him, giving me peace of mind even when I’m not there. In May 2022, I went to Mexico for a few days and my son stayed with my parents at my brother’s house. A couple of days after I left, most of the adults in the house fell ill with COVID, and they were all taking turns watching the kids and keeping the uninfected isolated for as long as possible. My family takes walks around the block every evening, and Ethan felt it was time for a walk, so he just left the house and walked around the block, then got distracted and headed towards the park.
If he didn’t have autism, he would be old enough to go to the park alone in his scooter, he is tall enough that people don’t see anything weird about him being alone. But he is not okay: he can’t talk. As soon as my brother notified me that Ethan was missing, my heart sank. I quickly checked the app and saw that Ethan’s location was showing up at a nearby park. I screenshot it to my brother, who immediately headed over to the park to find him.
When my brother arrived at the park, he saw Ethan playing on the playground with his scooter. He quickly approached him and made sure that he was okay. Ethan was happily oblivious to the commotion and was enjoying himself, as if nothing had happened.
I knew that without Angelsense, the situation could have turned out much differently.
As a parent, it was a sobering reminder of the importance of having safety measures in place for our children, especially those with special needs. AngelSense gave me the peace of mind that I needed to travel and to know that Ethan was being watched over, even from afar. I was grateful that we found him so quickly and that he was unharmed.
After finding Ethan safe and sound, I felt a wave of relief wash over me. I was grateful that my brother had texted me immediately when he noticed that Ethan was missing. It was only a matter of minutes before we located him, thanks (to) his Angelsense device.
