I have to post this pic of my son and the chickens. This pic means alot to us even though it looks fairly mundane. My son has Down's Syndrome. He is terrified of the chickens. He will not pick up our 6 week olds and won't get close to these older ones. If I hold one he'll pet them but if they make ANY move he yells and jumps away.
So, enter this picture. He ASKED to feed them their scratch treat. I gave him the bowl expecting him to basically dump it, run and watch from a distance but that's not what he did. He grabbed hands full and spread it out in front of him and let them get close to him. They got within 2' before he started backing away but that's 6' closer than any other day.
I'm so proud of him working through his fear.
That's awesome! I can see why the picture means so much to you, that's a giant step for your son. You must be so proud of him
