Beautiful, awesome post Tom. Thanks for sharing man. Heartfelt and a good read. Not even going to mention that I just teared up a bit. Happy holidays, Chris

Tom, This really hit me in the heart. I can only imagine how it made you feel. Rachel Ray sounds like she must be a genuine sweet heart too. Thanks for sharing. I needed some Christmas cheer.

Tom (& Anna & Elizabeth & any others of you there may be ;) )- Thank you for an amazing Christmas story. Our mutual friend Rick sent me this link this very morning, and I sobbed over it while surrounded by Santa's bounty for my girls. My 9-year-old has the "real" kind of autism, too, and I especially love how you hit the nail on the head about trying to give our kids happy experiences. She is fully engaged with her new, *translucent* Lego set now, making this a pretty successful Xmas for our family :) Merry Christmas!

Everybody- I am taken aback by the outpouring of heartfelt wishes from so many both here and via private e-mail. Please know that I consider myself the luckiest man on the planet, and I would not trade Elizabeth for anything. Thanks for your thoughts.

Elizabeth rocks! It's great to know she had a great time and that she, Anna and yourself had the best Christmas present! You guy's are the best!

I was really touched by this story. I'm a gruff old bastid. Real men don't cry. I didn't cry or tear up like some of these other girly men. But... I have a great nephew with autism, an autistic brother of my daughter-in-law, and a close friend of mine has an autistic grandson. Nobody without a close association can appreciate the situation. I admire you and your wife's planning and determination to meet Rachel Ray as a treat for your beautiful daughter. The love for all of our children is equal. I also admire Rachel Ray's policy of meeting/greeting special needs people first, and taking her time with them. This is very impressive!!! Her interest in making sure you got a good picture was very caring. Sometimes celebrities can be brusque and uncaring, but not in this case. Rachel Ray's got a new fan here. I'm looking for The Last Supper in 30 minutes!!! Tom--future sketch of the week, Rachel Ray? OK, I got tears in my eyes. But I'm still not a girly-man. Mike

Tom, add me to the list of people with tears in their eyes.That is the most powerful thing I have read on any blog this year. God bless you and your family. Truly amazing and inspiring. Merry Christmas to all the Richmonds.
