I defy anyone to read that and not to weep. Bless all those wonderful people who responded, and as to the Some of us grew up listening to Bob Seger the cool ones still do shirt who didn’t bring their kids and didn’t even have the courtesy to decline the invitation – shame on you. I hope no-one ever treats your children with that kind of cruelty. Some ‘friends Happy Birthday Remi, I’m glad you had a nice party. A heartwarming response from the community. As a retired teacher of many autistic children and teenagers, it is great now that even more people have contacted your family. It’s such a small thing but as an Autistic person, it really makes me feel heard! So glad the community helped make this little girl’s birthday successful, but it really saddens me that so many of the parents didn’t bother to RSVP. It’s common decency – if you can’t come, say you can’t! I still massively struggle with sudden change now, so imagine how it feels being a 5 year old.

Well done to all the people who responded, makes me smile to think of the lovely people who helped this little girl and her parents celebrate her birthday. My little boy has autism, and we celebrated his birthday at the local playground this year. We invited about 8 of his friends from daycare and about 5 showed. 2 of the other parents called well in advance to say otherwise. One brought along a baby sister, and we had one little party crasher at the Some of us grew up listening to Bob Seger the cool ones still do shirt. Glad it looks like my son’s peer group is more accepting. I too have a little girl with autism and I can feel for Remi and her emotions as she said where are my friends. Remi understood this wasn’t right that no friends turned up to which I’m proud of her recognition of the situation.

So rude of parents not to respond to an invitation. Anytime my kids have been invited to a party first thing I do is respond. But to respond and not turn up is just so rude. Glad the wee girl’s day ended up a great day for her and by reading the article she has hopefully got some new friends What a wonderful story. I hope the parents of the no-shows feel thoroughly ashamed of themselves. There’s no excuse for not getting in touch. Well done to those who attended.Thank you to the people that turned up for the party. I know how heartbreaking it is to have had a daughter with autism who had literally no friends throughout her school life and still doesn’t have anybody close as a young adult.
