World Autism Awareness Day took place this week, and in honor of the occasion, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo and her family took to Twitter to let Jacqueline Laurita's son Nicholas know how much they love him. 


On April 2, Caroline posted a close-up photo (above) of Nick's adorable face. "Special shout-out to our little man Nick on World Autism Awareness Day  you are so loved xoxo," Caroline captions the shot.

Caroline's son Chris tweeted, "World Autism Awareness Day today! follow @GenRescue @autismspeaks @JacLaurita to see how you can play a role in autism awareness day/month!"

And Lauren Manzo added a cute pic of Nick spelling out words with blocks. "Today is World Autism Awareness Day..." Lauren writes. "Thinking of my Godson/cousin/angel Nicholas! Look how freakin smart he is! I love you so much Nicky! You always make me smile!!!!"

Meanwhile, Jac has posted a new video of Nick singing with his music therapist. "Springtime Video with Nicholas and @JamminJennNJ !" Jac captions the video.

We're thrilled to see all the love and support that Nick has in his life, and we continue to wish him and his family all the best.
