A young boy in Michigan got the biggest surprise of his life when his birthday rolled around, all thanks to the love of his mother and the thoughtfulness of strangers.

When Colin’s mother asked about his birthday, Colin said that there was no need to have a party because he didn’t have any friends. Colin has a disorder that is similar to autism, and had difficulty interacting with other kids his age.

Desperate to put a smile on his face when his special day rolled around, his mom created a Facebook page in honor of his birthday with the hopes that a few of her friends would join in on wishing her son a happy birthday.

Little did she know, his story would touch millions around the world.

At the time of this post, years later, the page has 1,875,684 fans. Strangers around the world have posted inspiring and loving messages on the page, and many send special birthday cards and gifts to make sure that Colin really feels the love on his birthday.
