You brought hope and joy to so many families and children! Hear their stories of thanks and wonder:
Thank you for adopting my client and her family. The mom LOVED the gifts you picked out for her two year-old son. Elmo is now his new best friend, and an official member of the family. The kiddie play table is great and will get a lot of use. Mom wants you to know that “everything was just so perfect”. She is very grateful and can’t thank you enough for the lovely memory of watching her child receive your gifts on Christmas morning.
My client and her husband are struggling to raise two small daughters. They were very surprised and excited by the gifts they received on Christmas. The youngest girl especially loved her presents and carried them with her, every single one of them, throughout the day. The family says thank you very much to “Santa” for making this Christmas so special.
My client, a single mom and her family, loved all the clothes and toys they received. When the gifts were dropped off, one daughter was home sick, and was told that they were brought early for Christmas. She did not share the information with her siblings and waited patiently until Dec. 25th to open them. She was thrilled by everything. Mom was excited too, as she watched the young girl play with the arts and crafts materials, spending hours creating and then gifting others with her creations. Mom wants you to know she is so thankful for your kindness for inspiring her child to create some magic as well.
My client’s small son was very excited when he saw the tractor trailer on Christmas morning. He was told he should share the rest of the gifts with his brothers while they were home from school during the holiday break. The only daughter in the family was charmed with her new doll and was interested in playing with her brother’s toys as well. Mom asked me to thank you very much for the gifts. Her kids had a great holiday playing together and it was just a wonderful time for their family!
My client is a mom on her own this year. Her finances are very tight right now and she did not know what she was going to do for Christmas. She was so surprised with the Adopt a Family gifts that she cried with happiness when they were delivered. Her daughter loved her pillow, the arts and crafts kit and all the gifts she received. Thank you for sponsoring this family.
One mom cried during most of our first session after the holiday, and wants me to “Thank you all, you kind, kind people”.
“Since not having my children in my care, I was unsure of being able to provide them with gifts. Thank you for allowing me to make this year special for my kids even though we are apart.” (The case manager wants you to know that this mom was very emotional and very, very thankful.)
“It’s nice to know there are such good people in the world. Thank you so much!”
“I am a mother of three, not very well-off, and I needed help with Christmas this year. We got adopted by a beautiful family. The kids were so excited to get things they asked for, everyone was so happy! It was so much more than I expected. We are very thankful and appreciative for your support. We had a very nice Christmas and I just want to truly thank everyone.”
Thank you for joining us, and seeing the world through the eyes of a child. With hope, anything is possible.
