A birthday celebration for a six-year-old boy at Travis Air Force Base stretched into weeks. That's because Devin Montoya received 10,026 birthday cards, and it took a while to read them all.

We introduced you to Devin and his mother, Jessica Robinson, earlier this month. They recently moved to Travis and didn't know a lot of people.

Devin told his mom he wanted 100 birthday cards for his birthday on April 6 because he wanted new friends.

When asked if it was tough for him to make friends, Devin responded, "Kind of."

The little boy wanted someone to swing with, someone who can do monkey bars, and maybe someone who likes to color.

"Devin was just born to still love people," Robinson said.

So she posted the request on Facebook and got an overwhelming response.

The family says they received cards from across the U.S. and countries around the world, including Australia, England, Japan, and South America.

You can help grant Devin's birthday wish by sending a card to:

Devin Montoya
441 Diablo Drive
Travis AFB 94535
