“We just can’t do it.
We can’t live with ourselves.
We’re just so overwhelmed,” says Jessica Hines, a former teacher who has now moved to Texas with her family.
Jessica and her husband, Andrew, who has autism, are the first family to relocate from Minnesota to Texas after losing their job in New Jersey.
They have two kids in Texas, two in New York and one in Washington, D.C. Their children are both in college and in the process of getting married, but the two are in constant contact with their friends in New England.
“We have been so blessed to have the opportunity to make it here, and now it’s a new life,” Jessica says.
She and Andrew are the primary breadwinners of their family and are planning to buy a house in Texas.
Jessica says the Lynd’s Farm family is a blessing.
“It’s a family, but it’s also a group of people who share in this wonderful adventure,” she says.
Jessica, Andrew and their children, who have autism, have moved to a new home in Texas with their parents.
They now live with their new stepfather, and they hope to move to Texas as soon as possible.
“The people who were in New Bern [New Jersey] had it pretty good, they were doing fine,” Jessica explains.
I think we’re going to be just fine.” “
And we’re so grateful that this is our home.
I think we’re going to be just fine.”
The new family is not just a blessing to the new Lynda farm family, they are a blessing for the entire country.
“I think the country is really moving in the right direction right now,” Andrew Hines says.
“When we were young, we couldn’t really believe that we were going to have a family of our own.
It has taken a year of intensive therapy to get the help that the Hines have sought. “
Now, it’s just not a big deal anymore.”

“Our life is very much about what we do and how we do it, not what we look like,” Jessica Hine says.
When asked what she would like to do for the next six months, Jessica says, “I’m just trying to stay focused and get a job, do what I have to do, and get on with my life.”
She is grateful for the support that she has received from the family and from the media.
“They’ve been so kind,” she explains.
They are not looking for money or attention, but they have asked that the public remain respectful.
“If you see someone with autism, please be gentle and don’t judge them,” Jessica and Andrew say.
“Be kind to them.
It’s a blessing.”
