(InsideEdition via The AOL.on Network) Erin Deely’s son Brayden was diagnosed with autism when he was 3.

Erin never thought she’d get to have a holiday photo of Brayden with Santa but that changed when she brought her son to a special Santa event in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

The special Santa got on the ground with him and began playing with the 6-year-old.

The adorable photos were snapped as the two spent 20 minutes together.

Erin tells Inside Edition that seeing her son get along so well with a stranger brought tears to her eyes.
