There's nothing more uplifting than hearing about the love between a mother and a child—especially if that child has special needs. That's why it's no surprise that a loving letter between little Cadence, a 7-year-old autistic girl from Australia, and her mother, has gone viral.
The letter, which is a written exchange between Cadence and her mother, was first written by Cadence after she was feeling overwhelmed by negative news in the media about autistic people. Cadence asked her mother in the note if "being autism" made her "bad."
What could have been a heartbreaking story takes an incredibly inspiring turn near the end of the letter. Check it out below.

As you can see, the brave little girl goes on to say, "I was born autism but that doesn’t mean I was born bad."
When she asks why her mother is crying, she responds in kind, "I have happy tears that you know what is true and I have sad tears because there are lots of people who don’t know what is true."
What a beautiful message to send to a beautiful little girl! Truly an inspiration.
