The Good News: Michigan Santa Tells Autistic Boy to “Be Who He Is” [PHOTO]
"Shout out to the Santa at the RiverTown Crossings Mall. You.are.AMAZING!"
Naomi Johnson brought her son Landon to RiverTown Crossings mall in Grandville to see Santa. He said a few words to Santa, and then his cousins took their turn. However, Landon was obviously not "done." He came back to Santa and told him that he has autism.
Santa asked Landon if it bothered him to have autism, and Landon said yes, sometimes. Santa told him that it shouldn't, and he should be who he is. Landon said that he has trouble in school sometimes, but Santa reassured him that he's not on the naughty list.
Naomi shared her experience and picture on the RiverTown Crossings Facebook page, and it quickly went viral.
So, who else wants to pack up the kids and head out to meet the Santa at RiverTown Crossings? :)
