It is true that children do not really differentiate based on the many stigmas that adults in society hold. Kids are pure and so are their emotions and intentions. A video of a little girl named Ayla has been winning hearts online by demonstrating the genuine kindness and affection she shows an autistic boy in her class who is non-verbal. The video serves as yet another reminder that sometimes, we adults need to learn a few things about empathy and compassion from kids.

Ayla's mother @sainara_sartori first posted the video on her social media accounts and it was later picked up and circulated by several media sites and quickly became viral. In the video, we can see the little boy getting lots of hugs from his classmate Ayla. She hugs him for a long time as he sits still at his desk. He suddenly proceeds to touch her hair and play with the ponytail on her head. She leaves a cute little kiss on his hand and even his cheeks. Ayla even presents her left cheek to her autistic friend and he continues playing with her hair while flashing a bright smile.

The original video amassed over 200,000 views and tons of emotional comments from netizens who gushed over Ayla's kindness towards her friend with special needs. The caption read as follows: "The only flaw in this video is that it ends. Here, Ayla is showing her love for her little friend Heitor. Heitor's mom says he is autistic but a handsome and loving prince. I confess that I've seen this video about 50 times and cried every time."

According to Portal SCC 10,  Ayla's family resides in Santa Catarina, Brazil. The little boy in the video is called Heitor and he is fast friends with Ayla, just like we have seen in the emotional video that has been doing rounds on the internet lately. Heitor was reportedly diagnosed with non-verbal Autism Spectrum Disorder pretty early on.

Thankfully, he receives constant affection and care from his classmate Ayla. The adorable video was filmed by Ayla and Heitor's teacher at school who then forwarded the video to Heitor's mother, Leticia Soares. The little girl's mother, Sartori, later shared it on her social media accounts. "Ayla always shows her love for her little friend Heitor. She always talked about how Heitor, her classmate, was cute, and I received these videos from Heitor’s mom," Sartori told the outlet.



 

 



 

Internet users were left in tears as they melted over this pure bond between Heitor and Ayla. Tons of positive and heartfelt comments piled up for the little duo. @outshinelabels wrote under the original video: "This is so beautiful! You should be so proud to have such a loving daughter who cares so much for a friend that others her age probably see as different. This made me cry." @ju.mesquitaoliv added: "She understands and respects both his space and what he loves. He clearly likes her hair and at no point does she mind him touching it. This can be difficult for some girls at this stage. Ayla received great parenting and she is affectionate and empathetic."
