"Hi Jared! Thank you for accepting my [facebook friend] request. I'm [the kid with autism]'s mom. I read your blog and you wrote about us, [my son] is the severe autistic boy who
loves trains. I really appreciate for that day, and hope we can go to the city and go on tour with you again."
Background: early this year for International Tourism Day me and fellow guides volunteered at NYC&Co (NYC's Tourism Marketing entity) to provide free tours. I had two families on my tour of 42nd Street, which included the NY Public Library and Grand Central. One of the families to join us has a son with intense autism, but we all got along great.
