christmastreewishThis past Christmas, Julie Watts took her son Ben to find a Christmas tree for their home. But Ben has autism, and Julie said he ended up having a different understanding of how things were supposed to go. Ben thought they would wander the fields, then choose their favorite tree, and then a man with a saw would come out of the woods and cut it down. When she explained it to him, Ben thought the trees were fake and went into a meltdown. When she told Kevin of Roehler’s Tree Farm the story, he came up with a plan! After asking Julie which tree she wanted, he offered to carry the tree out into the field where she and Ben could “happen upon it.” Then he’d pretend to cut it down and haul it back for them. You can see the happy pictures and the rest of the story. After the story went viral, Kevin said in an interview that he didn’t even realize Ben had autism. To him, this was simply an opportunity to spread a little love and brighten one family’s day with some Christmas cheer. Click here for more.
