❤️WISH GRANTED FOR 3-YEAR-OLD SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD JUST TRYING TO BE ACCEPTED-MEET BEAUTIFUL ISABELLA
Here's the wish we received from Isabella's mommy:
Dear Bianca's Kids:
Isabella is a beautiful 3 year old little girl with a big personality. Isabella has been struggling developmentally since she was 9 months old. I have taken her to many doctors, Childrens hospitals, and therapist to try and figure out why my little princess was struggling so much. Finally at the age of 3 and after many different diagnoses Isabella was diagnosed with Austim and anxiety. She struggles to find activities she can share with other children and be accepted.
It's been my dream to be able to enroll Isabella in activities she enjoys so she can feel a part of something and make friends. Isabella has a hard time socially. When she is doing something she loves her anxiety isn't as bad and she is able to open up and interact with other children. Unfortunately, due to my husband having many illnesses himself, we have been struggling financially. I try my hardest to work and keep up with our bills but there isn't always enough money especially since we have two other children. My wish for Isabella is to enroll her in swimming lessons. Isabella has an elopement risk and wonders away. We have many pools in our area. I would like Isabella to have swimming lessons for a form of therapy and also to keep her safe. My biggest fear is if she would wonder away into a neighbor's pool and possibly drown. For some families this wish would be within reach but unfortunately it's not for our family. I thank you for this opportunity and hope we can be considered.
Kayla, we are thrilled to grant this wish for you. So, we have covered the cost for 6 months of swim lessons for Isabella at Goldfish Swim School - Mount Laurel. These weekly lessons will teach Bella how to swim and undoubtedly make a few buddies in her class along the way. We hope this will release you is the worry too.

**Wish Granted for the children of Pi Beta Phi Elementary School, victims of devastating fires in Gatlinburg, TN ***
In Nov 2016, much of the beautiful town of Gatlinburg TN was destroyed by devastating fires. One of the places severely impacted was the PI Beta Phi Elementary School. To date, the children of Pi Beta Phi remain displaced. Bianca's Kids has received a lot of support from the Town of Gatlinburg including a $5,000 grant from our friends at Sugarlands Distilling Company in 2016. As we believe in giving back to those who give to us, we knew we wanted to help the children of Gatlinburg in any way we could.
To that end, today we sent a donation to Pi Beta Phi Elementary to help with their rebuild. It is our hope that our small token of help will assist Pi Beta Phi in getting its school and students back to normal again.
A note of thanks from Pi Beta Phi:
"Please accept my sincere appreciation to the individuals and organizations that have reached out to Pi Beta Phi Elementary and our Gatlinburg school community with assistance, care, and love. Each one of you may never realize the impact your prayers, donations, and acts of kindness can make in the life of our students and fellow staff members. You may never know the sense of peace you brought to the mind, heart, and soul of a child or a Pi Beta Phi staff member by simply helping meet a basic need - the need to feel safe and loved; however, I did see how your act of kindness impacted our school family."
Dear Bianca's Kids:
"My wish is for my son Connor to have help with sleeping. He is five years old and still has trouble sleeping through the night. Most of our days start around 3am. I've missed so much work over the past 5 years with him being up all hours of the night, on top of appointments and therapies. I've heard many great things about weighted blankets being able to help. I would love to be able to try this for him."
We were happy to grant this wish for Connor. Our hope is that the weighted blanket we are gifting him will help this adorable little guy get some much needed sleep. We are sure mom could use some Z's too!

Max Von Holt is an adorable 6-year-old brain cancer survivor. This little guy sent us a wish for his very own lemonade stand. Max and his twin brother have BIG plans for this lemonade stand. You see, Max's intensions are not to raise money to buy himself a much deserved toy but instead, to raise money for those who helped him in his fight against cancer. That's right. At the ripe age of 6, this adorable boy has it figured out already. He will give back to those who gave to him.
It is for all of these amazing reasons that we granted Max's wish. We even allowed Max to pick the very lemonade stand he wanted. He chose the one you see in the photograph above. If your in Max's neighborhood, be on the lookout for "Max's LemonAID Stand" and buy a few glasses. It's for a good cause. :)
Good luck Max!
