Help us wish Skylar a Happy Birthday...

I'm wondering if you can help us help Skylar, a young lady with Asperger's Syndrome who recently had her 9th birthday. At The Gray Center we provide information about autism, answering questions from all over the world. I was recently contacted by Skylar's mom. Skylar asked her mom if she could have a birthday party, despite the anxiety it created for her. They invited her 24 classmates, decorated, ordered food and cake. No one came.

I've learned about Skylar in the last few days. Her mom reports that she is a very nice person, often picked on for responses and preferences that are harmless to others, but not typical.

We'd like Skylar to know there are plenty of people who would wish her a Happy Birthday, and that she's not alone; there are others who are not understood, and/or de-valued for their unique talents and preferences. If you'd like to send Skylar a birthday card or greeting, or if you're a teacher or group leader with kids who make great cards : ) (you get the idea)… I've a little information to guide your efforts. Skylar loves:

- Animals, especially cats (especially Siamese), dogs (she has Boxers) and horses
- The colors blue and purple
- The movie, Frozen (especially Elsa and Olaf)
- Reading (especially about animals)

For Skylar's security, please send your greetings to The Gray Center and we will get them off ASAP to Skylar. Here's the address:

SKYLAR ℅ The Gray Center
4370 Chicago Drive
Grandville, MI 49418

Please join us in congratulating Skylar on her 9th birthday and wish her the very best in the future -
