Bravo Osceola, and the Sheriff and Fire Departments. When a six year old autistic boy, Glenn, invited his classmates to his birthday party, not one child bothered to show. Despite not receving any RSVPs the parents thought at least some kids of the 16 invited would have turned up. Nope. His mom said that “From the minute he woke up that day he wanted to know how many minutes until his friends came,” Sadly, they eventually had to tell Glenn no one was coming. Upset, his mom vented on a Oscela Facebook page, wanting to know if any other parent had experienced the same situation. The response? Next thing she knew 15 kids and 25 adults (strangers) were at her door ready to celebrate with Glenn. One woman even came with a brand new bike. When the local Sheriff’s office and fire department got wind of the story they arranged a belated birthday celebration too. Fire trucks, police cars and a rescue helicopter arrived at his house and he partied all over again. His mom’s response “thank you, thank you, thank you.”
PSST I hope the parents who were a no show are hanging their collective heads in shame. Happy belated birthday from all the Loons.
