She was living in her own little world isolated and feeling alone. That is until he came along and broke down those walls in the best way, with determination, and loving kindness! When his neighbor Annie reached out to the new kid on the block to make friends, Peter happily accepted, until he tries to visit, and gets the surprise of his life.
Then he discovers the struggles people with Autism have to deal with everyday. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that causes the person to have difficulties with verbal, and non verbal communication, as well as impaired social interaction. The list goes on, and on, with many other problems they struggle with. It can be very difficult for them to make, and maintain friendships to say the least. I admire what Peter does, he doesn’t shy away, but educates himself, and creatively finds a way to meet Annie where she is at. His determination to be her friend in spite of her challenges is awesome! What he does is so heartwarming and sweet, it is sure to bring a tear to your eye.
