This afternoon Lou Miller, owner of the Saddle Boutique, refused to let a mother and her handicap child in her store because the child was in a stroller. The child was attached to her feeding tube, which was attached to her pump, which was attached to stroller. She told mom to carry child or she could leave child in stroller by the door. It is illegal to not have handicap access. It amazes me the lack of ethics and morals this store owner has.

It wasn't like the stroller was huge. Sarah was put in a small stroller to accommodate space. Those of us who know this family are fuming. Bandera is better than this, or it should be. Its a sad day when a mom is punished for having a disable child.

I was a witness to this incident yesterday when this precious little girl was discriminated against. The owner of the store immediately stopped the mother whom was pushing the little girl into the store. She shouted very rudely, "NO STROLLERS IN MY STORE". The mother then kindly asked her if she allowed wheelchairs. Lou responded, "yes, but our wheelchair customers have to leave their chairs at the front of the store, if you bring her in she will have to stay at the front of the store." Lou stated that there was NO room in the store for the little girl's stroller which I might add was very small, similar to one of those umbrella strollers except the girl's stroller was back facing and was slightly reclined for her. There is clearly a path throughout the store that is in fact big enough for the little stroller to fit through.
I am very angry and frequently shop from Lou when I am in town visiting family. My grandparents lived there for many years and were very active in the Bandera community. You can bet that me, as well as my many friends and family members in Bandera, will never spend another penny in this store. I left that store yesterday extremely angry! I hope the mother and child never have to endure something like this again! I hope that Lou Miller has to pay the consequences for her actions yesterday.

Also, I forgot to add that the mother did explain to Lou that her daughter was special needs and unable to walk.

No response can justify her discremnatory actions. She's certainly not the brightest individual, that was made pretty clear by her obvious lack of knowledge regarding handicap accessibility laws. I don't know Sarah or Molly, but the rage and heartache i felt after hearing about the humiliation they had to experience yesterday should be embarrassing to the city of Bandera.

Sarahs mother should not be punished nor should Sarah for something that is out of their hands , that little girl is a blessing to everyone that knows her she is a fighter and should be able to live her life and shop where she pleases !

I have a disabled nephew that lived wth us for a few years and I can honestly say that when something like this happens it is humiliating, frustrating and discriminating! I hope someone wth some power sees this and reminds this business owner her place in society. How dare anyone think they can refuse access to handicap individuals. I have never shopped at this store personally but I knw people who do and they knw the family this happened to and I Gurantee they will never shop there again.

This lady should be put out if business for her actions. These people are personall friends of mine. This child has had to fight for life on several occasions, and did just that!! This lady should have to know what the words discrimination and lawsuit mean on a first name basis. I know if Sarah was my child and received this treatment, she would.

This is awful. It amazes me how inconsiderate and outright cold hearted people can be. Imagine having the heartbreak of knowing your child is sick and then being treated this way. I tear up at the thought of how that mother must have felt. So much evil in the world but there is still good. I say word of this should spread and noone should ever shop there again. Maybe a little unrealistic but I think if this story gets around she will lose enough business to definitely feel the sting. Out of line maybe but I probably would have got arrested if I had witnessed such a thing, kudos to those who were there and kept their composure.

Life blesses us all with miracles, Sarah is obviously one of many and very loved. I have miracles in my family as well...and will not tolerate discrimination of any kind. I have friends that travel to that area quite frequently and rest assured Lou Miller, they will know exactly where NOT to shop. May Karma serve you well.

My heart broke when I heard about this person "Lou Miller" denying service to the mother "Molly and sweet Sarah." We as Texans have always stood strong for children/adults with special needs. She is in for the rude awakening of what true "hateful, rude and unpleasant ways" by word of mouth and loss of business. If she do not want strollers/wheelchairs in her business. Then don't have a business for them. It is a law for all business to have access for strollers/wheelchairs. My advice "Lou Miller" start a typing business, apparently you don't have much people skills.

I do not understand how someone can treat a child like this. Sarah is a blessing and anyone who has ever been blessed with her presences agrees. There is many people that will fight for this little angle. I dont think that Lou Miller realized who she was messing with.

Well aren't you proud of yourself Lou Miller? Do you feel like a real tuff woman now?
So let me know when your old butt hits the walker, wheelchair or nursing home ok? I would like to be the one pushing you in your wheelchair in good ol Bandera! Oh if I remember correctly it's a little hilly too! And I have no problem puréeing your steak for your feeding tube! I'll see about a motor for your walker so it can pull you around doing about 35mph! Hang your head and get on your KNEE'S and ask God to forgive you, it might help you to not get such a hot room where your going! NOT!!! Anybody that steps foot in your store now needs to think about the children, adults oh ya, and our US service men who gave up their ability to stand like you, so you are free to treat children like dirt under your feet! YOU CAN'T FIX OR CANDY COAT YOUR UGLY ACTION! Nothing you have could be worth buying or making you a penny! GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, HOPE TO SEE YOU IN THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINE, where you will be panhandling for your supper!
