God help(ed) them

Allen, who wandered away from his parents while hiking Sunday, was found lying in a clearing about a mile from where his hat was found Monday.--MSNBC article

How does an autistic child with "the mental capacity of a 3 or 4 year old" get separated from his family on a hiking trip? Umm, you mean maybe they weren't watching him? I think it's crazy that he got separated at all--if he really is at that level, then he should be "watched" like you would watch someone that size. And thus, he would never have been lost.

Apparently God helped the parents find their son. Maybe God was also trying to remind them to pay attention to their child…next time. This time they were lucky.
