Daniel was diagnosed with severe autism as a toddler, according to his father. He didn’t eat for several years as a result of this. He can communicate, but it is difficult for him to participate in a conversation. He only responds in “normal” ways.

“He’s been through a lot in his 15 years,” Harrison says. Only the best will do for this gorgeous, polite, and pleasant young man. This gentleman has not a single flaw in his body.

“It was fantastic,” Harrison remarked.
