Maranda Karna sent out 70 invitations for her autistic son’s 10th birthday, but only one person responded positively to the invitation.
A friend of the mother, Stéphanie Lovejoy, knowing Thomas’s interests perfectly, wanted to organize a memorable party for the boy.
This Wisconsin resident made a social media appeal through her profile, calling on bikers to come and congratulate the child on this special day.
The boy’s happiness knew no bounds when he saw an entire motorcycle park near his home.
“My friend Maranda invited 70 people to participate in her son Thomas’s special day, but only one person agreed to attend the little one’s birthday, so I took the initiative to organize it myself.”
“The child is autistic, and I’m writing this message to bring all the motorcyclists from our district and show him that he is not different and that he deserves to be loved like all beings,” said Stéphanie.
“The little one is 10 years old, he loves motorcycles, he’s interested in reading. Please come with your motorcycles, support him,” the woman wrote.
More than 300 bikers with their families came to wish the boy a happy birthday.
The father was riding the motorcycle with his son. The boy felt like the star of the day.
The guests brought gifts and donated over $1,000, including biker vests.
“It’s incredible to know that all these people came for me. I feel like one of the most special people in the world,” said Thomas.
