Landon’s Secret

After the family photo was taken, Landon returned to Santa, with his arms twitching in anticipation and adrenaline.

He was about to ask him something that made him very nervous.

“Will my autism put me on the naughty list?”

Landon had a concern that his mental condition wasn’t going to bode well with Santa and the elves, but he couldn’t have been more wrong!

Without hesitation, Santa responded with an amazing answer:

“You know I love you and the reindeer love you and it’s OK. You’re a good boy. You’re a good boy, you know?”

Instantly, Landon’s nervous energy disappeared and his mom Naomi watched in amazement as Santa calmed her son down.

She said that Santa explained something she’s been trying to teach her son since he was born – that he isn’t a better or worse person because of his condition.

With just five words, Santa made everything right again.

“It’s OK to be you!”
