Mom's Friend Asks Twitter For Help To Track Down Dress For Little Girl With Autism

Lex Gabrielle 11 Jul 2019

In life, there are moments when we need to reach out to friends and ask for some help — especially when it comes to our children. When we have children with special needs, sometimes we ask for help more often than we truly want to. But, we'll do anything to make our kids' lives a bit easier.

Recently, Twitter user Deborah Price asked Twitter users if they had a specific dress from company, Next.

She explained that a friend of hers has an autistic daughter, Elsie, who only wears one specific dress. As her daughter is growing older, Deborah's friend wanted to see if anyone out there had the dress in the size she needed.

However, because her friend's daughter is extremely particular, she needed a specific style and fabric.
