Elijah Sprague, who has autism, wanted to celebrate his 14th birthday at his favorite restaurant and fulfill his dream of working the drive-thru.
His uncle, Walt Gilstrap, is the general manager at the local Chick-fil-A, so he and the owner decided to fulfill the boy's wish by opening the restaurant on Sunday.
Elijah ran the drive-thru window where he passed out cookies to about 40 cars, WKRG reported. The participants then went inside the restaurant to finish celebrating Elijah's birthday with a festive cookie cake.
"The way people love this kid amazes me. It has truly changed the way I live my life. Loving people with your whole heart, judgments aside and with no anticipation of rewards. Thank you to every single person that loves our Elijah," Elijah's mother Rene Sprague said.
