Cliff, then. Xander, now.
Do you remember Cliff?
Last Christmas, he was one of the worthy causes that I posted about here on MelissaStuff last Christmas. People all over helped raise money so this little boy could find a mommy and a daddy who would be able to bring him home so that he could celebrate this Christmas in his own bed in his own house with presents under the tree for him.
In June, his parents brought him home thanks in large part to the money that was raised last Christmas. He know has a host of brothers and a mommy and daddy who can’t get enough kisses and hugs.
This is Xander . . .
Don’t you just want to scoop him up and tickle him until he belly laughs. And if you’re OCD like me, you might also want to make sure he gets a hoodie with sports or skateboards or animals – you know something ALL boy, instead of pink flowers.
But we can’t. At least not right this minute. But you can help this little boy get to a place where those things can happen.
One of the ladies helping to raise the funds for Xander, put it this way – “I know life is expensive and times are tough. I know. But ask yourself this: Can you afford not to?”
