Happy birthday Colin page hits 1 million likes!

Birthdays may come and go each year, but one little Kalamazoo boy will be sure to remember his eleventh for a lifetime.

Colin suffers from Asperger's a mild form of Autism and this year he told his mom there would be no point in throwing a birthday party. Colin said he didn't have any friends to invite. All of the kids at school "don't like me" and "make fun of me," Colin told his mom.

That's when Colin's mom took matters into her own hands, with the a little help from Facebook. She created a Facebook page entitled "Happy Birthday Colin."

The page reads "I am Colin's mom, I created this page for my amazing, wonderful, challenging son who is about to turn 11 on March 9th. Because of Colin's disabilities, social skills are not easy for him, and he often acts out in school, and the other kids don't like him. So when I asked him if he wanted a party for his birthday, he said there wasn't a point because he has no friends. He eats lunch alone in the office every day because no one will let him sit with them, and rather than force someone to be unhappy with his presence, he sits alone in the office. So I thought, if I could create a page where people could send him positive thoughts and encouraging words, that would be better than any birthday party. Please join me in making my very original son feel special on his day."

As of this morning, the page has received more than 1 million likes.

Colin's 11th Birthday is on March 9, which is when his mom plans to unveil the page to her son, so you still have time to join the party!

If you want to wish him a happy birthday, you can do it right here.
