Facebook Post Inspired A Community To Make A Parade For Special Man’s 21st Birthday.
One of the most beautiful things about humans, is that every single one of us is different. There are no two humans that are exactly alike, and that goes to show how important it is for us to embrace our individuality. Some humans are born a bit differently, and that makes them just a little more special. Matthew is one of those special humans. Because of the way he was born it’s hard for him to go out to certain places. So, this year, for his 21st birthday, his mom arranged something unbelievably remarkable. Something that the people involved will remember for the rest of their lives.
Matthew was born with a chromosome deficiency.
This deficiency has caused him to have serious brain malformation, cerebral palsy, and autism. Because of this, Matthew tends to be a bit loud, which makes it hard for him to go to a lot of public places.
Matthew isn’t so much unlike other people, though.
He loves smiling, laughing, and having a good time. And he loves the loud noises that fire trucks and music brings.
Matthew not being able to go places didn’t stop his mom from celebrating his big 21st birthday.
Kim Davis-Robinette, Matthew’s mom, wanted him to celebrate just like anyone else would. She came up with a brilliant idea!
Matthew is a huge fan of parades.
It allows him to be as loud as he’d like, without getting any awkward stares from people. Matthew can just be himself.
Kim hit up social media with a simple request.
She informed her friends that it was Matthew’s 21st birthday, and asked if people could drive by and honk their horns. That post was shared over 1,500 times!
