ALABAMA, USA — An Alabama Chick-fil-A opened on Sunday – something the popular fast food chain normally doesn't do – so a 14-year-old boy with special needs could celebrate his birthday. 

14-year-old Eljiah Sprague, who is autistic and has cerebral palsy, fulfilled his dream of working in a Chick-fil-A drive-thru on his birthday.

"My brother, [Elijah's] uncle, is one of the managers at the local Chick-fil-A," Rene Sprague told CBS News. Chick-fil-A is one of Elijah's favorite places and they visit his uncle there often. 

Her brother didn't know what the restaurant's owner would say about opening on a Sunday, but when he heard it was for Elijah, he said yes, without a doubt.
