"I saw him (Christian) on the ground with Connor as Connor was crying in the corner and he was consoling him. He grabs his hand and walks him to the front door. We waited until the bell rang and he walked him inside of the school. The rest is history. They have an inseparable bond," Courtney Moore, Christian's mother, told KAKE.

Christian didn't know his new friend Connor is autistic, and it was a simple moment that was witnessed when one boy needed a friend.

"He was kind to me. It was in the first day of school, and I started crying then he helped me, and I was happy," Connor told KAKE.

"He found me and held my hand, and I got happy tears," Connor said.
