This Heartwarming Birthday Invitation Will Bring You To Tears

by Paul Morris
Paul is a proud Southerner who enjoys long walks in the woods, sweet tea, and watching movies. He’s also an expert pastry chef and will share his rhubarb-berry pie recipe with just about anyone who asks. He loves America and playing with animals of all kinds. When he isn't writing about the things he loves most, you can find him in the great outdoors!

Whenever Timmy receives a birthday invitation, his mother always ends up declining to come. You see, 7-year-old Timmy suffers from severe autism, and even though he wants to make friends, sometimes his disorder gets in the way of playing with the other children.

Timmy’s amazing mother has to watch her son Timmy struggle with his condition, and even though Timmy wants to play with the other kids, he just doesn’t know how to ask to be included.

Over the years, Timmy’s mom has learned just to decline those birthday invitations, a nice and sweet gesture to be sure, but not one that she or her son was willing to accept.

Timmy’s mother is very grateful for those children who invite their entire to class, but she doesn’t bring Timmy due to the meltdowns and interruptions, she doesn’t want to take the spotlight away from the birthday child on their special day.

That all changed when Timmy received a very special invitation, one that was so well-crafted, and so loving, that we couldn’t help but tear up while reading it. Its stories like these that easily restore anyones faith in the goodness of humanity. With so much darkness in the world, it’s good to remember that there are people out there who willing to go out on a limb in support of a fellow human in need.

The note was so beautiful that Timmy’s mom immediately RSVPd and we couldn’t be happier!

What did you think of the amazing invitation below? Read it and try not to cry!

And please SHARE this beautiful story if you’re happy that Timmy is going to this incredible birthday celebration!

“Carter sat beside Timothy at school and he always talks about him. I really hope he can come. We are renting a bounce castle that we can attach a small bounce slide at the bottom. We will also have water balloon’s and water guns. Maybe Timothy can come earlier in the day if it would be too much with the whole class. Let me know how we can make it work.”
