CINCINNATI -- Brandon Wical's toy collection is "like his family," his mother said.

"He's been collecting them for at least 20 years," she said. "He knows every one by name and he remembers when he got them."

Wical's toys are so special to him because he has autism, his mom said.

"With his autism, he plays a lot in his imaginary world," she said. "In his world, these are his friends.

But the young man decided he wanted to donate his toys to St. Joseph Orphanage.

"I feel like I'm giving a part of myself."
