Hallee Sorenson from Maine invited all of her classmates to her 19th birthday party and NO ONE showed up. Hallee has autism, and she was extremely upset that she was celebrating her birthday solo. Her cousin Rebecca Lyn shared a photo of Hallee, sitting alone at her birthday party.

“This is my cousin Hallee. I’d like to tell you a little bit about her … First off, she is a beautiful young woman-both inside and out,” Rebecca posted. “She lights up a room with her smile. Hallee is funny, sweet, caring, smart, an athlete, a jigsaw puzzle champion, a wonderful student and a best friend to all. Hallee is an amazing person – a person I am proud to be related to. She is also a person who just happens to have autism. She has never let that small detail define who she is as a person – which is why I refuse to use it as something to describe her.”

“This would mean a lot to her mother as well, for as you can imagine, watching your child cry into her birthday cake breaks your heart. If there is anyone who deserves a great birthday, this is the girl,” Rebecca posted.
