A video of a Winnie the Pooh at Disney World is going viral for the absolute best reason. Jessie Barber and her wife, Allison, were with their 18-month-old son, who has cerebral palsy, at the Crystal Palace's character breakfast in Magic Kingdom when Pooh walked up to the boy and began fussing over him. For over 10 minutes, Pooh held hands with the boy, gave him Eskimo kisses, and stroked his hair — and the video Jessie took of it all going down is so damn sweet.

"For those of you who have disabled children [you] know the feeling when people look but aren't sure how to interact with your kiddo. This Winnie the Pooh melted my heart and knew exactly what to do!" Jessie wrote on Facebook under the video of Allison holding their son as he engaged with Pooh. "He spent 10+ minutes with our little guy and he loved every second of it. Thank you Pooh!"
