Mom's Tweet Goes Viral After She Posts Grown-Up Autistic Son's First-Ever Heartbreaking Question “Would someone like me?”.

Kerry Bloch was heartbroken when her son after years of not talking to anyone asked his mom his first question that if anyone is ever going to like him? The mom turned to Twitter for the answer and as expected the Internet responded to David's question in the most heartwarming way.

Kerry Bloch and her husband had their child David at the age of 40. Things were going all well until their son David turned 4. Showing signs of severe autism, David stopped speaking to everyone altogether. Kerry explained, "He was fine and then he just kind of lost it all."

According to Kerry, her son would go days without speaking to any person. She said, "My husband and I, we don't really know what happened. And honestly we don't care what happened. It's water under the bridge and we're just moving forward and trying to give him the best life possible. That's all that matters."

After 21 years, David asked his first question to his mom. The heartbroken mom shared the question on Twitter with the world. David suffers from immunodeficiency and this is the reason why growing up he never got the chance to interact and make friends with his peers. Kerry says, "He wants friends badly. He's home-schooled, and it's just the three of us. I know he's lonely and he wants friends."

After hearing the question, Kerry says it was difficult for her to respond to it emotionally. "I had to go off and cry when he didn't see me because it's just kind of bittersweet that he's trapped in there. He does want to be liked, and he does want friends, and he doesn't know how to make them."

Not certain how to respond to the question, she told her son, "And I said, 'I'm sure anybody that met you would like you.'"
