Classic Country Listners. I am going to share with you a story that will rip your heart out. Please read this and be Collins Friend!
Meet Colin. Colin is a 10-year-old boy from Michigan who is turning 11 next month. You wouldn't tell from that big smile that Colin is affected by a sensory processing disorder, as well as another disorder similar to autism and Asperger syndrome. The youngster has trouble socializing with others, making school really tough.
According to a report by WOOD-TV, his mom, Jennifer was talking to Colin about his upcoming birthday. Colin told him mom he didn't want a party. When when his mom asked him why, Colin responded "Mom, who am I going to invite? I don't have any friends."
So mom created a Facebook page to show Colin he has friends who truly care for him. What was going to be a small page ballooned. On Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 9 pm MST, the page has over 644,000 likes worldwide!
According to the Facebook page, Colin has aspirations to become a either a Pastor, a comedian, or a missionary. Mom adds that "he's the self-appointed greeter and opens the door for each person as they come to church."
"He's loving and caring to everyone. He gets picked on at school a lot, but despite his Momma's requests not to, he always asks the principal to not punish the offenders, because everyone deserves forgiveness," mom writes on the Facebook page.
Wish Colin a Happy Birthday!
