When none of Glenn Buratti's classmates showed up for his birthday party, the six-year-old was devastated.
No one RSVP'd but Ashlee Buratti told a local newspaper that she hoped a few would still show up to the party, never thinking that no one would, Ashlee Buratti, said.
According to The Osceola News-Gazette, as her son, who has a mild form of autisim, went off, disappointed, to play with his sister, Buratti took to a Facebook closed group and posted to Osceola Rants Raves & Reviews List, unable to bear the weight of her son's disappointment.
"I know this might be something silly to rant about, but my heart is breaking for my son," she said in her post. "He keeps asking 'when will my friends get here?'"
It didn't take long for parents and kids in the community to respond with gifts for the birthday boy.
