This lady wanted to make her son’s birthday special and memorable and posted a request to friends and family, asking them to drive by to wave out to her son. Her son just loved the parades and she wanted to create that environment on the special day.
But I am sure she would have never expected such a massive response from people and what followed was a festival.
Kim Davis-Robinette’s 21-year-old son, Matthew, was born with a chromosome deficiency, resulting in cerebral palsy and autism.
“I am requesting as many friends as possible to drive by my house and honk your horn to wish Matthew a Happy 21st Birthday.
He loves a kinds of vehicles – trucks, motorcycles, cars, firetrucks, police cars – he loves it all,” she wrote in her Facebook post.
As soon as the post went viral, the wishes kept on coming on August 19, 2017, and Matthew who was taken outside his home, was having the time of his life.
Hundreds of people arrived with colourful clothes and presents. They were coming just to wish him.
There were cheer squads, firefighters, police officers, dance groups, and a marching band during the parade. Someone also came in a race car completely covered in puzzle pieces.
Matthew was definitely the star of the day and he couldn’t have asked for a better birthday celebrations.
“It’s just a simple day for a handicapped kid … Wouldn’t have it any other way. We blow it up and make it good,” says Pat Boyer, a participant, reports The Herald Bulletin.
He had brought in over 100 bikers from the “Madison County Biker Died Here” club after seeing Kim’s post.
Kim was obviously surprised by the immense love showered on her son, while the son was laughing throughout the show.
“That’s what this is all about—having fun, community, loving one another and being there for each other … He’s teaching people how to dig into their hearts and show that people are really good and they do care,” Kim said.
And the community did show their love in the most spectacular way.
Kudos to each and every single person who participated in this touching event.
Isn’t it just amazing?
