Everyone Needs A Friend

“A person's a person, no matter how small.” 
                    ― Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!

I have often wondered what kind of life Tyler would live. Most of the time the future is WAY in the future. I hadn’t really thought of what it would be like in the immediate future. He hasn’t always had someone to play with. Making friends in the neighborhood has been difficult. And most of all, he hasn’t had that ONE person. 

The other day, as we have been trying to figure out how to have a Fabulous birth party with no K,K and L, we decided that we would ask him, exactly who he wanted to invite. We have even left it up to him to tell us what he wants in a party and what games. 

Naturally, Tyler decided he wanted a bowling party. And naturally, we agreed. He wants to play pin the tail on the donkey, and again, we agreed. He also wants to invite Don. ( And Miss Crystal and anyone else n his class that wants to come, but he really wants Don) Ty has repeatedly told us about Don. That him and Don when to music, him and Don went to play. I assumed with all of the things him and Don did that it was his aid at school. 

When we went in to School today and I asked Miss Crystal who Don was I got a startling answer. Don is actually Donn and he is a little boy in the class. Tyler was right, Donn is his best friend. 

Donn and Tyler sit next to each other in class. They talk all the time. They are always playing together. They are always doing things together. 

Everyone needs a friend. One that doesn’t care, that doesn’t judge and one that is just there.

I'm so happy that Tyler has a fun friend. Yes, everyone needs a friend. I'm also sure that Donn's mom is grateful for Tyler. (5 tries with that annoying sign-in to show you are not a robot! I can't read the letters!)
