1. Policeman calms autistic boy at train station
I wanted to take a few minutes to share something incredible that happened today. This afternoon I picked up Andrew from…
Taylor, a mother from Washington shared her gratitude this week after a kind policeman stepped in after noticing her struggling with her son Andrew. Andrew suffers from autism, and wasn’t coping with a long train journey, so the policeman offered to join them on the rest of their journey to help distract and entertain him. Taylor said: ‘This officer COMPLETELY went out of his way to help Andrew. He honestly restored my faith that there are good people still left in the world. To that officer, I truly can not say thank you enough for your immeasurable amount of kindness and for making Andrew’s day (probably his whole year).

Yesterday an elderly lady came up to us at the beach and asked if we could help fulfill her husbands wish to ride a wave one last time.

A group of friends at the beach were approached by a woman this week with an unusual request. Her elderly husband was ticking items off his bucket list, and wanted them to help him ‘surf a wave’. The friends were more than happy to help and his list is now one down.
