This is a that I’ve heard many times before and it’s still just as heartbreaking. In fact, there’s a link to a birthday party invite (near the end of the story) that’s a story we need to hear more often. Kids and parents willing to step up and make a difference.
The article is over at Yahoo! and is entitled “7-Year-Old Girl With Autism Writes Heartbreaking Friend Wish List” by By Bethany Ramos. The birthday party article is entitled “The First Time My Son With Autism Got a Birthday Invite I Didn’t Have to Decline” by over at The Mighty. The power of the story is alive and well.
