Altruism + Severe #Autism? Beans shares his candy.

Yesterday, on the way home from the grocery store Beans did something I have never seen him do before.  Something that I honestly was unsure he would ever do.

Dad got a small box of Whoppers to share with Beans.  Dad was driving, so I handed the candy out to him, and Beans.  I handed a few at a time to them each, until they were gone.  Then, I gave Beans the box, because he loves to tap (stim) on empty boxes.

That's when it happened.
