It’s hard for any parent to send their child on a plane by themselves. But when the kid is a child with special needs, the situation might be a little bit more nerve-wracking, especially the first time they fly alone. This is exactly how Alexa Bjornson felt when she sent her 7-year-old son, Landon, from Las Vegas to visit his father all the way in Portland.
Landon has high functioning autism and was flying alone for the first time. Alexa was worried but had no other choice but sending her son alone on the plane. She had no idea how Landon would behave throughout the flight but hoped that he would mostly be okay.
In order to make things a little bit better and easier for whoever was about to sit next to him on the flight, she decided to prepare something small.
