Most fathers often tend to be over possessive about their daughter. Shane Jackson is no different when it comes to his 10-year-old daughter. Little Sophie suffers from Autistic Spectrum Disorder(ASD), which is a development disorder with difficulties in social interaction and communication. Children suffering from ASD often find it difficult to concentrate and perform well academically. While Sophie is a great artist, her recent report card did not make her very happy. She scored straight Ds, due to which she was extremely upset.

Not letting a result affect his daughter, Jackson decided to make one of his own. After doing so, he tweeted out a picture of the re-done report card and wrote, “My daughter who has ASD received straights Ds on her report today. She cried and said “I’ve let everyone down” this is my report card for her.”

In no time the post went viral with over 12 thousand retweets and 65 thousand likes at the time of writing. Later on, Jackson also posted a picture of a drawing that Sophie made and even thanked everyone for the support.
