What Is In Your Heart
There is a boy with autism in Dorito's Scout troop who is also homeschooled. We see Eli often because he also plays cello in youth orchestra. Earlier this week was his 18th birthday, and he invited three friends to his first-ever birthday party--including Dorito, who said "yes" right away. We bought Eli the newest Bionicle from his wish list, and Dorito said he put it together in less than an hour without fully reading the instructions. Impressive! I am most impressed that Dorito and Jacob see a person and not a disability.
