A Massachusetts woman turned to Facebook to ask for birthday cards to be sent to her soon-to-be 19-year-old cousin whose friends stood her up last year. Facebook user Rebecca Lyn shared a photo of her cousin, Hallee, sitting alone at her birthday party after nobody showed up to celebrate.
“This is my cousin Hallee. I’d like to tell you a little bit about her … First off, she is a beautiful young woman-both inside and out,” Rebecca posted. “She lights up a room with her smile. Hallee is funny, sweet, caring, smart, an athlete, a jigsaw puzzle champion, a wonderful student and a best friend to all. Hallee is an amazing person – a person I am proud to be related to. She is also a person who just happens to have autism. She has never let that small detail define who she is as a person – which is why I refuse to use it as something to describe her.”
Cards can be sent to:
34 Wellesley Way
Bangor, ME 04401
