Snow White Warms Boy’s Heart During Meltdown

In a heartfelt letter to Disney, a New Jersey mom praised one of the princesses at Disney World for how well she consoled her son during an “autism meltdown.” Lauren Bergner told the heartwarming story on Facebook:

 

 

She explains her son Brody has autism and is nonverbal. She took him to meet one of his favorite Disney characters one afternoon, but after waiting in line for so long, Brody became overwhelmed. No problem for Snow White! The actress playing her consoled Brody and took his hand as the two went for a walk to take a break from the crowds. In some of the photos, Brody can even be seen dancing with the princess!

 

 

“She went above and beyond !! She took so much time with him .She was a pure angel ! She was magical and my family is forever thankful and touched!” Lauren Bergner writes.

 

 

It’s so heartwarming to watch the Disney magic come to life for Brody!

Elderly Man Leaves 14 Years Worth of Books and Presents to 2-Year-Old Neighbor

If this story does not convince you to love thy neighbor, then I don’t know what to tell you.

 

In Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, a town in Wales, Ken, a neighbor to Owen and Caroline Williams for the last two years, on Monday evening, has passed, thus having his daughter deliver the news that presents were left for their two-year-old daughter Cadi to obtain fourteen years worth of gifts.

Mr. Williams couldn’t resist opening one of the presents, and it was a book, Christmas Eve At The Mellops’ by Tomi Ungerer.

“She was clutching this big bag plastic sack, and I thought it was rubbish she was going to ask me to throw out,” said Mr. Williams.

“But she said it was everything her dad had put away for Cadi. It was all of the Christmas presents he had bought for her. I brought it back in, and my wife was on FaceTime to her mum in Ireland. My wife started to tear up, and I started to tear up, and her mum started to tear up. It’s difficulty describing it because it was so unexpected. I don’t know how long he put them away whether it was over the last two years or whether he brought them towards the end of his life. “We can tell there’s some books, there’s three or four soft toys, maybe so Duplo,” he added.
