My ds#1 has ASD, a part of some of his quirks is that he obsessively collects/hoards stuff. He learnt a few years ago in order to get stuff, you need money. So now he is quite obsessed with money, constantly searching under cushions, asking if he can do extra chores for it, is always counting it to make sure he hasnt even lost 5c! Etc
Anyway... It was my birthday and he said he got me a present. He is 7 and other than being at school he is always with me, so i know he couldnt have purchased anything. So he goes into his bedroom and comes out with a birthday card he made... And an envelope filled with his entire savings in it for me.
I told him i couldnt accept his money, that i wanted him to have it, but that it was the most beautiful gesture and i was so so proud of him. i cuddled him and cried for about 15 minutes. I know how hard that would have been for him, my baby feels selfless love for me... I have never been more proud of the person he is.
