Santa Helps Blind Boy With Autism Experience The Magic Of Christmas Through Touch


Matthew Wolf, who is blind and autistic, has reunited with Santa Claus after three years.

Matthew enjoyed his first visit with Santa when he got to meet him through touch. Matthew heard that Santa had eyes that twinkle, so Santa let him feel his face so he could get a sense of what he looks like.

Recently, now-9-year-old Matthew got to visit Santa once again, and is still very curious as to what things look like. His mom described the decorations that were by Santa, which included two reindeer.

Matthew wanted to know more about the reindeer, so Santa took Matthew to the reindeer so he could help him feel them as he described them to him.

Matthew even got to bring a wish list for Santa this time, which was written in braille. Some of his wishes are a calculator, a timer, an analog clock, and a robe.

“It’s just so nice when people can take the extra time. He needs that so much, so when people can pause and just spend some time, he’s going to talk about it for months and months and months,” Matthew’s mom, Misty, told Fox 4 News.

Matthew had a huge smile on his face and thoroughly enjoyed this year’s visit with Santa.

Santa loved his time with Matthew and told Fox 4 News that his “heart is just so full.”
