ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - It's not often people who send birthday cards end up receiving a gift. Rarer still is sending a letter to the President of the United States and getting a personal response.

A young girl from Highland, Illinois experienced both situations.

Autumn Hayes decided to send former President George H.W. Bush a birthday card complete with drawings of 'Bush 41' in the Oval Office. Hayes said all she hoped was that the president would like the card.

The former president liked the card so much, he sent Autumn a gift.
