Most youngsters don’t travel by themselves. Landon Bjornson, a seven-year-old boy with autism, has shown the world that he can fly alone despite his disability.
Landon’s mother, Alexa Bjornon, relocated her seven-year-old son to Oregon from Las Vegas.
Landon’s mother had previously planned for him to see his father at the airport when he landed. The thought that Landon could be terrified on the plane doesn’t bother Alexa. In her mind, Landon’s seatmates may find him bothersome.
The seven-year-old is autistic and has a proclivity for bombarding the person seated next to him with questions. And he may be a ‘burden’ to other passengers if Alexa isn’t with him.
After considerable deliberation and consideration, Alexa has finally come up with a solution to this potential issue. She gave Landon a message to give to the person seated next to him before letting him board the aircraft. As a thank you for accommodating her kid, she sent a $10 gift card with the note.
When Alexa was interviewed, she said, “I thought, how can I make it so whoever is sitting next to him won’t look at him as a burden but more of like, I can assist this youngster get through the day.”
Ben Padraza, Landon’s seatmate, had been quite accommodating to him in this regard.
After the plane had arrived, Ben snapped a picture of himself and Landon, who was cuddling up.
Ben presented himself to Alexa as Landon’s neighbour in the photograph. He also stated that Landon had asked him multiple times whether they were still on their way. Ben informed the mother that her child was doing well and had been a ‘wonderful travel companion’ at the conclusion of the conversation.
And you are one fortunate woman to be his mother, he wrote.
During the plane ride, what have Ben and Landon been up to?
In an interview, Pedraza said that they had been joking around. After a time of laughing, “he urged me to stop making dad jokes,” he claimed in an interview. “We were cracking jokes.”
It was a good day for Alexa and Landon. Ben, Landon’s kind seatmate, is a decent guy. In addition, he is unwilling to accept the $10 in payment. He intended to give it to Autism-Society.org instead of spending it himself and his time.
When Landon arrived in Portland, Alexa couldn’t help but convey her joy. Using Facebook, she spread the word about her happiness.
Her tale has received hundreds of likes and shares on social media. It became an internet sensation!
“I am extremely appreciative of this person and the fact that there are still good people in the world, as I strive to do myself. My heartfelt gratitude to Ben.” In her post, she included a picture of Ben and Landon on the plane.
