Mother's Request for Birthday Wishes Goes Viral

A Michigan boy with autism has received global attention in the past week for a simple reason: he thinks that no one cares about his 11th birthday.  His mother was heartbroken when her son Colin told her that he didn't want a birthday party because he had no friends.  Without telling Colin, his mother appealed to Facebook users who have responded magnificently.  Her plea has gone viral, resulting in more than a hundred thousand birthday wishes that flood in every passing minute.  Colin's birthday is on March 9th and he has no idea any of this is happening.  Visit his Facebook Page to wish Colin a happy birthday!
