When parents first discover that their child is afflicted with an illness that will affect their interactions with others, it’s hard to imagine what life will be like for them. The parents learn to adapt their schedules and needs to fit those of the child’s, in hopes that life will be easier for him or her. Often, however, people outside this child’s family may not consider his or her needs in the same way.
But as mom of three Tricia Klein found out, there are a few kind souls who are considerate of her child’s needs. Tricia’s son, Timothy, was diagnosed with nonverbal autism at 2 years old. Since then, she has helped her son overcome the daily challenges he faces. Though he struggles with interacting with others, he loves many of the same things other 7-year-old kids enjoy: he likes to play soccer, swim, and watch YouTube videos. But it isn’t uncommon that his mom has had to decline his invitations to parties because of his condition.
But one day, a note from a mother whose son was in Timothy’s class changed that.
Scroll down to find out what that mom said that moved Tricia to tears!
