Video Transcript

Sarah: My twin brother Jacob has an autism spectrum disorder. I remember one moment after being at school all day... and I remember him getting into the car just bawling and saying 'Mom, I have no friends. Why don't I have any friends?' It broke my heart.

Lyrics: Brother let me be your shelter, never leave you all alone.

Sarah: That was the moment when I realized that I needed to do something about this. I needed to make a difference in his life. And I knew that if I could help him find a friend, I could help teach other people that including people with differences is the right thing to do.

Lyrics: Bring it home. Brother let me be your shelter...

Sarah: That was the inspiration behind my non-profit "Score A Friend". Educating people to include people with difference is so important because when Jacob's included, he feels like he can succeed in life and he feels like he actually has a purpose.

Inclusion. Pass It On!

Love this. My nephew is slightly autistic and has a rough time "fitting in". Very good inspirational! Be the light.

I have twin 5 year olds and one of them has Autism Spectrum Disorder and Jacob’s story has me crying tears of fear and joy all at the same time. I pray that this world embraces every one that is different to see the brilliance we all possess Thank you for giving me hope to pass it on you rock!

Thank you Sarah! God Bless You Sarah & Jacob! 💙 Inclusion is very important because we can all learn from each other! Being different is a blessing, there was a special purpose for children with Autism who are so amazing in so many ways. How boring would the world be if everyone was just “normal “ instead of uniquely wired to think outside the standard box. Life maybe a little tough but not impossible. You are amazing Jacob! My daughter’s name is Esperanza it means Hope. 💙 I know you both will succeed. Keep going! Happy Autism Day. Your friends from Sacramento, CA.
