When a mom shared a heartbreaking question her son wanted to ask on Twitter, she got responses from all over the world which blew her away.
Kerry and Robert Bloch’s son David stopped speaking all of a sudden 4 years old and only speaks in single words till today. “He can go days without saying a word,” Kerry said.
David also has an immunodeficiency disorder which means he has to be kept isolated from other kids. “He wants friends badly. He’s home-schooled, and it’s just the three of us,” Kerry said. “I know he’s lonely and he wants friends.”
David asked his mom last week, for the first time, “Would someone like me?” Kerry was moved by it and posted it to her Twitter account.

“I want to thank everyone who has responded to this tweet,” Kerry posted. “I’ve read every reply to David. The outpouring of love to him is overwhelming. God bless each and every one of you. David is working on thank you card. I’ll post when he’s done.”
This outpouring of love is what the world needs right now. Let us reach out to everybody near us and also on social media to let them know that they are not alone and that we love them and have their back.
