An Ode to Bob Odenkirk

Last month my husband was in LA and spent a day walking the picket lines. He ended up in a long discussion with Bob Odenkirk about autism. Bob has a close friend with an autistic child and Scott said that he knew everything that was going on with him and talked about autism at length as if he were an autism dad himself.

In my Autism in God's Economy series I wrote about friends like this, who have really stepped into the lives of struggling families and helped them carry their burdens. Bob looks to be one of those guys as he really was carrying an emotional burden for his friend and his child. I want to give Bob props and an Autism in God's Economy Award for loving an autism family so much.
