CHESTER SPRINGS – Like a typical mother, Marie Louise Ludwig was thrilled to hear her daughter, Stephanie, say the word Mommy. The fact that it happened when Stephanie, who is autistic, was 15, made the milestone even sweeter.
“I think it’s a word a lot of mothers take for granted,” said Ludwig, who lives in Phoenixville with her husband, Andy, and Stephanie Keir, now 21.
But Stephanie, who graduated in June from Devereux in West Chester, can’t live with her parents forever. So Ludwig bought a house in Chester Springs for her daughter Oct. 10 with money raised through the nonprofit she started four years ago, Stephanie’s House.
