We just love these heartwarming stories out on the farm, especially around the holiday season. An Indiana mother recently took to Facebook to share her family’s story after a Fayette County Christmas tree farm helped her autistic son pick out the perfect “not fake” Christmas tree from their selection.
Julie Watt said she took her son to Roehler’s Tree Farm for what she thought was going to be a “quick purchase” from their pre-cut trees. But after her son insisted that all pre-cut trees were fakes and refused to get any tree that wasn’t currently growing in a field, Watt said she was prepared to leave that day with no Christmas tree.
That’s when an employee stepped in to offer to pick up a tree, carry it all the way back in the field, and stand it up a row so Watt’s son could “fake cut it down.”
“To Kevin @ Roehler’s Christmas Tree Farm: you have no idea how awesome you are!” Watt wrote. “You completely saved our Christmas tonight and never complained once about all the extra work to sell me a tree you already had ready.. You took some of the ‘hard’ that goes with raising a child on the spectrum and lightened my load. You made him laugh and you made him happy.. and you made my week!”
