James Groccia of West Boylston, Massachusetts has Asperger's syndrome. And when he was nine years old, he wanted a rare $100 Lego Emerald Night Train set. His parents wanted to teach him about responsibility, so they told him to save his money.
And James did . . . for TWO YEARS. Earlier this year, he finally had enough money saved up. But when he tried to buy the train kit . . . he found out that Lego had STOPPED MAKING it.
James wrote a letter to the company to complain. And the folks at Lego tracked one down for him, and sent it to him on October 19th . . . two days before his 11th birthday.
They also included a letter commending James for his willpower and patience.
