WESTMINSTER, CO - Who doesn't love birthdays? It's the one day a year family and friends make you feel extra special.

Natalie Carson, 19, recently aged out of foster care in Colorado, and she says she's never had a birthday with a family.

"It's something that I've never really had, of course I've had birthdays, but they haven't really been good," says Carson, "usually every birthday is really painful and hard."

So, Natalie turned to Craigslist for help. She's looking to rent a family that she can spend time with on her birthday in a few weeks. Natalie was skeptical at first.

"I really didn't think anyone would really answer, because I know it's Craigslist."

But she says several people have reached out to her! Hopefully her birthday wishes will come true, because having a family to celebrate with, truly is the greatest gift of all.
