Daiki and Mako are both close…
They met for the first time at Wai Wai about 2 years ago when my family adopted him.
Daiki is 6 years old now. He has #autism. He goes to 聖坂養護学校 ( Hijirizaka #SpecialNeeds School ) since April this year. He comes to Wai Wai after School almost everyday and take care of Mako…
Mako is 4 years old now.
He looks forward to that Daiki comes to Wai Wai after school everyday…
Mako is like Daiki’s younger brother…
and Daiki is like Mako’s older brother…
Sometimes They have dinners together after playing with their friends of Wai Wai…
Daiki’s family and my family became close after cheerful and awesome meeting of Daiki and Mako…

Their cheerful friendship delights both of Daiki’s family and my family… 🙂
About 2 years later Mako will go to 聖坂養護学校 ( …now He goes to nursery class regularly… ) everyday.
We look forward to the day when Daiki and Mako go to the school together !!!
