Blind boy 'sees' Santa for the first time in heartwarming Facebook post

Matthew Wolf is six years old and like many kids his age, he is obsessed with Santa. The only thing that hinders his interest in the man from the North Pole, is the fact that he is blind and autistic.

Matthew's mum recently took to Facebook to share a Facebook post of his visit to the mall to meet St. Nick.

"Best Santa ever," she began in her now viral Facebook post.

"I whispered to Santa 'he is blind and autistic and is very interested in Santa'. He said 'Say no more'."

Santa got off of his chair and knelt down in front of Matthew, gently took his hands and put them on his face.

"He talked to Matthew for a long time. Let him feel all over him. Told him to pull his beard, feel his hat and talked about his red suit. He asked Matthew if he wanted to feel anything and Matthew said 'your eyes that twinkle' (from the poem 'Twas The Night Before Christmas) so Santa let him touch all over his eyes for as long as Matthew wanted."

It was Matthew's first time he ever got to really interact with Santa, and the gesture had many people believing in Santa all over again.
