When Children’s Birthday Parties Inspire

Living and breathing kids’ birthday parties means occasionally running across a story that reminds us all just how special these days can be. Case in point: this moving piece about a Michigan boy with ASD whose parents built a Facebook page for his birthday party.

The story quickly became a national media obsession, resulting in his appearance on “Good Morning America”:

Happy birthday to Colin.
