Calif. boy moves to new town, wishes for 100 birthday cards

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (KGO) - Given every crayola color, Devin Montoya's favorite is blue.

Today, he uses that crayon to color the sky, draw the wind --- create a spring time sunny day.

But there's a cloud in the picture --- his family is new to Travis Air Force Base.

When you came here, was it tough to make friends?

"Kind of," he said.

Devin will turn six in a few days so his mom asked what he wanted.

"I said, 'Devin, have you thought about it ,' and he said, 'Yes ma'am. I want 100 birthday cards.' And I said, 'Oh, 100. I don't know how i'm going to get that done,' and I said, 'Can I get you 100?' and he said, 'get them from different people,'" his mom, Jessica Robinson, said.

The reason will make your heart melt.

"So I can get 100 new friends," he said.

He wants someone to swing with.

Someone who can do monkey bars.

Maybe someone who likes to color.

"Devin was just born just to love people," his mom said.

Someone dropped off this birthday card in their mailbox earlier today and Jessica's hoping to get at least 99 more by Devin's birthday party on April 13.

The message doesn't have to be much.

Well they can say happy birthday to Devin.

It's the smile of a lonely little boy opening a stack of cards that would be so powerful.
