Landon Johnson, 6, visited Santa with his Mom. Everything went as planned and the boy told Santa he would like a Wii, toy dinosaur, and a remote control car.

He got up from Santa’s lap and followed his mom to the photo kiosk. As the photos were being processed, Landon decided to wander away and ask Santa a question that had been weighing on his heart.

The question is quote heartbreaking and went something like this: “Will my autism put me on the naughty list?”

Santa reached up for the boy’s hands and began rubbing them. He then told Landon, “It’s okay to be you.”

The above video beautifully captures the story.
