Barong First Communion

When my parents went to the Philippines last year, they had purchased barongs for everyone. We tried to incorporate the barong look at our son's First Communion. Here are photos from that day. Sadly, I could not fit into the barong from the Philippines that my mom had purchased so I wore a similar style from Ann Taylor.

First Communion For A Child On the Autism Spectrum

Our 8 year old completed his First Communion. As I suspected the host would be difficult for him. However, with practice sessions using unconsecrated hosts he did it! The first two attempts were disastrous because he would gag and eventually throw up. With lots of talks about other students who would be there with him, he did manage. We also used apple juice at home. I would say that in all, it took us a good 6 hours over the course of 3 days to finally get him to be ok with the host. So- not as bad as I thought. Here are the photos:
