James Isaac is a down-to-Earth little nine-year-old boy who loves his family very much and just wants to spend as much time as possible enjoying life and living every moment as best as he can.
While James is certainly an incredible little boy who is very able in mind, body, and spirit, there are a few issues that come along with his autism. While James certainly has some hurdles in his life that require a little more focused attention to overcome than the other children, as long as he is surrounded by the love of his family and teachers, he’s sure to be able to beat anything that comes his way.
Sometimes, however, as this darling little boy continues to grow up, he’ll have to face problems on his own. And while it might be scary without his mom at first, there’s someone else in the family that will always be by James’ side no matter how hard things might get: His service dog!
As long as Mahe, his beautiful and helpful service dog remains by his side, something tells us that this little boy is going to grow up to be able to beat back what people perceive a person with autism to be.
James’ amazing mother, Michelle, said that Mahe has completely changed the whole family dynamic. Previously the family actually felt isolated at times and just found it easier to stay home, but ever since Mahe came into the picture, James can happily and safely go into the community. Mahe’s calming presence is really incredible to watch.
