KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan boy who said he didn't want an 11th birthday party because he had no friends is savoring a celebration he'll never forget.
Colin was the guest of honor Friday at a surprise bash on the set of ABC's "Good Morning America" in New York, where he learned that millions of people had sent him virtual well-wishes. The family asked that their last name not be used.
Colin has a condition similar to Asperger's syndrome that makes it difficult to relate to peers. His mother created a "Happy Birthday, Colin" Facebook page that drew more than 2 million "likes." He also received thousands of cards.
After the show, his family was heading to Disney World, where he'll turn 11 on Sunday.
