Mom In Tears When Her Autistic Son Makes His First Friend


In a world that can be full of judgement and misunderstanding, sometimes all you need is a friend. That’s what non-profit organization 4 Paws for Ability recognizes, and that’s why it is their goal to pair children with special needs with service animals that can change their lives.

Shanna Niehaus, a mother of a 5-year-old boy with autism, felt the impact of this incredible service when her son was paired with his new service dog, Tornado. It wasn’t long after these two met that profound results were seen. The connection between her son and Tornado was instant, and within a short time, her son was happily laying down on the pup’s body, all of his own free will.
