A Family Trip
Many families choose to take their children to Disney World, and Lauren Bergner and her husband were no different. As parents to a 6-year-old boy with autism, they hoped that their son Brody would enjoy the magic of the place. However, they also knew that it would be difficult. Due to his non-verbal autism, he often struggled when surrounded by large groups of people or loud noises. Of course, anyone who has been to Disney before will know that it’s hard to avoid such situations.
Having A Hard Time
In order to make his Disney dreams come true, Lauren and her husband made their way to the Germany Pavilion in Epcot so that Brody could meet Snow White. As they waited in line, Brody began to have a hard time. The people and the noises were all too much for him, and he began to have a “meltdown.” When Snow White realized what was happening in the line, she immediately made her way over to the family and did something magical. She took Brody’s hand and steered him away from the crowds, she stroked his head, and she even gave him a big cuddle. It instantly soothed the boy.
We guess magic really does exist!
