The autistic boy usually eats lunch alone
As parents, we always want the best for our kids and never want them to feel singled out, alone or sad. For parents who have children with autism, that worry can sometimes become a reality and it means we have to do all we can to help shield our kids from the unkind word and gestures of others.
Then, there are the people in the world who have a real true heart of gold and always treat everyone — no matter their struggle — with kindness. And when it comes to children who don’t always feel accepted or like they belong, sometimes the smallest gesture can go a long way.
And that’s what happened for one middle-schooler with autism when a man stepped up doing something most of us wound’t think is a big deal and it made all the difference to the boy and his mom.
Beautiful story about how an autistic boy’s life was touched by the simple act of another.
