When Colin, who is 10 years old and has a sensory processing disorder, was asked by his mom if he wanted a birthday party this year, he said there wasn’t a point because he had no friends. As his mom explained, because of his disabilities, social skills are not easy for him and at school he eats lunch alone in the office everyday because no one will let him sit with them. With this heartbreaking response from Colin, his mom decided to do something about it to lift his spirits.
So, Colin’s mom set up this Facebook page where people could send him positive thoughts and encouraging words. And, it’s got quite the response! The page has since received over 1 million ‘likes’ (along with many sweet messages)! In fact, it’s received such a response that Colin’s mom is concerned he will find out about all of this (which was planned as a surprise until his birthday on March 9)!
So we invite everyone to send some birthday cheer to Colin on his page or even send him a card (his mom set up this PO Box for him):
Colin – PO box 756, Richland, MI 49083-0756
But make sure to do it before March 9!!
We wish Colin a very happy birthday!!!
