With the all the news about the autistic boy not having friends. I know that feeling all too well for my son Dylan. He doesn’t have friends and probably doesn’t even know what that means. The only friends he really needs is his family. He has that with his older brother and sister. I can absolutely say they both love him with all their hearts. He attends a special school with other children like him or worse off than him. I know some of the children that attend his school know what friendship is, but for most of the children, they can’t understand that concept. That doesn’t mean they don’t need friends too. I know his teachers love him also. The definition of friend is –a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. With that being said, I’m not looking for anybody to feel sorry him, because I know he is one of the happiest people I know most of the time. He can have his bad days just like anybody can.
