Autistic Son Tries To Answer Homework Question, But When Dad Takes A Second Look His Heart Breaks.

Bob Cornelius’ youngest son, Christopher, is on the autism spectrum and has always had trouble making friends. Last week at Christopher’s back-to-school night, Bob snapped a photo of his son’s latest project. Christopher’s teacher asked the class to list a few things about themselves, but it wasn’t until Bob took a second look that his heart broke in two.

Christopher had answered “no one.” As the heartbreaking truth washed over Bob, he was compelled to take to Facebook set the record straight for parents without kids on the autism spectrum.

We’ve included his post in full below… we all need to take his words to heart.
