Facebook user Misty Wolf recently shared a heartwarming holiday encounter between her 6 year-old son and Santa.
Misty took her son Matthew to meet Santa at Cabela's in Fort Worth, Texas.
"Best Santa ever!
I whispered to Santa “he is blind and autistic and is very interested in Santa”. He said “say no more” and immediately got down on the floor to greet my little man.
He talked to Matthew for a long time. Let him feel all over him. Told him to pull his beard, feel his hat and talked about his red suit.
He asked Matthew if he wanted to feel anything and Matthew said 'your eyes that twinkle' (from the poem ‘twas the night before Christmas) so santa let him touch all over his eyes for as long as Matthew wanted."
After sitting down with Matthew, Santa asked him a touching question: "Have you ever felt a real reindeer?"
"Santa then carried him over to the display area. And had Matthew pet the taxidermy reindeer they had set up. It was great. My heart was full seeing Matthew so interested."
"You relate to the child and what the child needs," Santa said to KTVT.
