A mother's tweet about her autistic son being lonely and asking if 'someone would like' him provoked a heartwarming response online.
Kerry Bloch’s son, David, 21, had been nonverbal for most of his life as he developed an immunodeficiency disorder, meaning he was home-schooled and away from kids his own age in Neptune Beach, Florida.
Bloch shocked his parents, including dad Robert, when he asked them a question for the first time, being: 'Would someone like me?.'
