Ashley England, the boy's mother, noticed the waitress approaching, expecting to hear a complaint, but instead, got the shock of her life, she says. A mystery diner picked up their tab and left an inspiring note on a guest check that read, "God only gives special children to special people."

Ms. England said that note made up for all the nasty looks she has received over the years.
