A US mum has shared a photo capturing her son’s heartbreak after no one showed up to his sixth birthday party.
Sil Mazzini said that her son Teddy had invited 32 of his classmates to a party at a local pizza restaurant in Tuscon, Arizona. But several minutes into the party on Sunday afternoon, it was clear no one was showing up.
“I’m done with parties for a while,” she told local news station, ABC15.
Sil said while some parents had informed her in advance their children couldn’t make it, as far as she knew everyone else was coming and was left with dozens of gift bags and a heartbroken son.
After sharing the photo with a local news reporter who posted the photo on Facebook, the story of Teddy and his lonely birthday quickly went viral, with hundreds of people voicing their support for the boy.
