Just over a year ago, nine-year-old autistic Maddox Prier told his family, "I hear the horns." They listened to his warning, got into the bathtub together for safety, and survived a tornado. His mother Janyce also cherishes another four-word sentence he said that day:
"We were laying on the floor of the bedroom, and I was just looking at Maddox, and I was like, 'I love you Maddox,' and he goes, 'I love you too, Mommy' and he's never said it since," Janyce told KSPR. "That was the first time he'd ever said it. I bawled and bawled."
