    Trino, I just read a similar story that also made me teary, and was coming here to post!

    http://www.jsonline.com/news/wiscons...206029261.html

    Before inviting Jon to the dance, Maddi asked his father if it would be OK.

    "It was a pretty breathtaking moment for me," said Larson, whose other son, Joe, also is autistic.

    Larson hesitated before answering, mentally reaching into the pile of "things that would never happen" to retrieve the idea of Jon at the prom.

    Maddi misunderstood his silence for negativity and went on, trying to persuade Jon's dad he should be able to go.

    Finally, Larson found his voice.

    "Maddi," he said, "we would be honored to have you take Jon."
    I can't imagine anything like this happening when I was in high school (and I'm in my 30s...high school wasn't that long ago!). There are some amazing, amazing kids out there today.
