New York State Senate: Create Avonte's alert, named for Avonte Oquendo.
Jan 21, 2014 — It is with sadness that I am adding this update. It is hard for me to type these words. The remains found, have been confirmed by the Medical Examiner in New York, are of Avonte Oquendo. I know I am not the only one praying for this family...All our prayers and positive energy is and have been directed to the Oquendo family for months and even more so at this time. This petition was started with love and concern, I to have a child with Autism as the many who have taken the time to sign, promote and share it on Social Network. It is greatly appreciated. For it's not about me, it is for our children! Started and WILL be continued in the name of Avonte Oquendo.
