    so, I know it's probably coming later, but it is refreshing to see that the douchbags haven't made comments yet. For those of us who are parents of special needs kids (especially with Autism), these are remarkable public moments to savor.

      He will remember it the rest of his life. Kids with autism have amazing memories. I know because my son is high-functioning autistic. He remembers things from when he was two. It's good to have him because I rely on his memory as mine goes.

    I'm disabled for a bit on bed rest bc of a coma resulting from an accident. Chive, you make bed rest tolerable! I've had to relearn to walk, talk, everything- and let me tell you, this is such an inspirational thing to see. Can't wait till I'm back out in the world with the experience of hardship so I can see and be inspired by sweet moments like this in person. I'm gonna devote a lot more of my time than previous to helping others, and perhaps I'll be blessed enough to come across something like this. Thanks for making my day, Chive. KCCO, Erin Jo
