Hundreds Of Strangers Come To Girl's 10th Birthday After No Kids Come

Jenny Moretter wanted her daughter Mackenzie's 10th birthday to be special.

So she planned a big party at her Shakopee, MN, home and invited all of Mackenzie's classmates to join in on the celebration.

But nobody came, and Mackenzie -- who suffers from a developmental disorder called Sotos Syndrome -- was heartbroken.

Jenny, too, was hurt. She took to Facebook to voice her frustrations on a mother's group page.

She wrote,

I want so much for Mackenzie to belong and for her to have friends and people to accept her for who she is.

And in a final attempt to rescue Mackenzie's birthday, Jenny invited the fellow mothers -- and their children -- to her home to celebrate via an event page on Facebook.

To Jenny's complete surprise, her home was packed with hundreds of people who'd shown up to celebrate Mackenzie's birthday; many had even brought gifts for the special birthday girl.

Hundreds more who couldn't attend joined the event page on Facebook to wish Mackenzie a happy birthday and show their support for the sweet young girl.

With their help, Mackenzie's birthday became every bit as wonderful as the young girl deserves.
