Bianca’s Christmas Letter

I wish I could find the right words to express my gratitude for how you’ve impacted and
my family’s life; however, I don’t think the words exist. Every time I think of it, tears well
up in my eyes.

You have already provided a beautiful, spacious place to live. You are educating me on life
skills. You are teaching me to budget, to plan and to be as prepared as possible. You are
giving my children a safe place to go afterschool and educating them, not just on
academics, but also character.

As if that was not enough, you allowed me, for the first time ever, to buy my children
Christmas gifts. My oldest daughter is 7 years old, and I have never been able to pick out
gifts for her and her 2 sisters. Gifts have always been donated to the girls, and I am
thankful for that. I will always be thankful to those individuals who helped make
Christmas special for the girls. But I will always be thankful to you all even more for
making Christmas special for me.

To give me the dignity to pick out gifts for my children is an experience that I will never
forget. Seeing them open up and be excited over the gifts mommy chose is something
that will forever be ingrained in my memory. It is something that will always be a
motivating factor during budgeting times and even to change things in my life style to be
able to feel that self-respect, sense of pride, and pure thankfulness. Thank you, forever
grateful, Bianca
