Kerry and Robert Bloch's son David suddenly stopped speaking at around 4 years old. To this day only talks in single words when prompted.
"He can go days without saying a word," Kerry said.
David also developed a severe immunodeficiency disorder that meant he needed to be isolated from other kids.
"He wants friends badly. He's home-schooled, and it's just the three of us," Kerry said. "I know he's lonely and he wants friends."
Last week, David asked his mother his first-ever question: "Would someone like me?"
Kerry shared his question on her Twitter account.
