Girl with special needs wants just one thing for her birthday

For her birthday, 10-year-old Marlie didn’t want a bunch of gifts or a big party. She just wanted birthday cards, lots of them, because she loves to read.

"She actually never read until this last year," Marlie's mother, Shelley McCain, said. "She just started reading and we were just, like, blown away. My husband and I are just sobbing."

McCain said Marlie doesn’t do well around a lot of people and big parties make her anxious, so birthday cards are the best gift for her.
