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!
