Colin has a disability which makes socializing and making friends difficult.

As Colin prepares to celebrate his 11th birthday on March 9, his mom is asking for help to make sure Colin's birthday is extra special this year.

Colin's mom wants to make sure he feels loved on his 11th birthday. She has created a Facebook page where anyone can share their birthday wishes for her son.

Here's what Colin's mom said on Facebook:

I am Colin's mom, I created this page for my amazing, wonderful, challenging son who is about to turn 11 on March 9th. Because of Colin's disabilities, social skills are not easy for him, and he often acts out in school, and the other kids don't like him. So when I asked him if he wanted a party for his birthday, he said there wasn't a point because he has no friends. He eats lunch alone in the office everyday because no one will let him sit with them, and rather than force someone to be unhappy with his presence, he sits alone in the office. So I thought, if I could create a page where people could send him positive thoughts and encouraging words, that would be better than any birthday party. Please join me in making my very original son feel special on his day.

Shhh. It's a secret.
