Oh, I totally *get* this. What a great moment for you :-) My 11 year old Aspie is also finally managing to cope with some physical affection, and has started asking for hugs. (of course, just as all his peers *stop* hugging their mums, but never mind LOL!)

Elizabeth,

Thanks for sharing. Not only do we get it, but you have given me hope that my hug-adverse boy could eventually change.
