Santa Kneels For Blind Boy With Autism, Lets Him Feel His Face and Bushy Beard

As children we all believed in Santa Claus that he could make all our dreams come true, but as time passed on, our ideas changed about him and we stopped believing in his existence.

A life changing incident in Matthew Wolf’s life made him believe that Santa was 100 percent real and authentic and thanks to the post shared by his mom Misty Wolf on social media is making thousands of people change their view on Santa.

Matthew is autistic and blind, and recently when he and his mom visited the store, featuring Santa, his mother spoke to Santa about Matthew’s challenges and also made it known about how much Matthew adored him. In a post on Facebook, she writes, “He said ‘say no more’ and immediately got down on the floor to greet my little man.”

Santa chatted a while with Matthew and even invited Matthew to tug on his fluffy beard, touch his velvety red suit and feel his festive red hat. Santa didn’t stop there but asked him if there was anything else about Santa he was fascinated with. So Matthew mentioned, ‘your eyes that twinkle’ so he allowed him to tap around his eyes for as long as he wanted.

Old Father Christmas wasn’t done for the day as he then asked Matthew if he’d ever felt an actual reindeer, so he then carried him up and took him to the display reindeer so he could pet it and say hello. Misty expressed her gratitude on Facebook, “my heart was full seeing Matthew so interested.” The post has gone viral with more than 70,000 people sharing the story.
