A single photo of 18-year-old, Hallee (from Bangor, Maine) eating her birthday cake all alone is causing heartbreak across the internet today.
Halle’s cousin, Rebecca Lyn, posted the photo to Facebook Wednesday. Rebecca describes her cousin as a beautiful young woman, both inside and out.
“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,” Rebecca said in the Facebook post.
A photo, which was taken at Hallee’s birthday last year, shows the teen sitting alone. Rebecca says Hallee was very excited to celebrate her 18th birthday party with her friends, but no one showed up.
“She wanted to go bowling, have fun, and eat cake and ice cream. Invitations went out to her classmates at school and to other friends in the area. Hallee sat at her party anxiously waiting for her friends to arrive so they could have fun…. but Hallee’s friends would never arrive. Not a single one,” Rebecca said in the Facebook post.
The photo shows Halle eating her birthday cake, alone. The post since received over 55,000 shares.
Rebecca is now asking people to flood Halle’s mailbox with birthday cards. She says Halle loves getting mail and this would be the best birthday gift she could ask for.
Hallee’s 19th Birthday is in July.
