*TEEN WHO BEAT ALL ODDS GETS A WISH GRANTING FROM BIANCA'S KIDS AS SHE HEADS OFF TO COLLEGE* MEET SAVANNAH.
The following is the wish we received, however, some information has been redacted for confidentiality purposes:
Dear Bianca's Kids:
I am submitting a wish for a laptop for an adolescent whom I work with at *********. Savannah is 18 years old and has overcome many statistical odds through the years. Since she was 15 years old, she has dealt with issues relating to her self-worth. However, within these three years, she has overcome these obstacles. Savannah graduated high school this year and has been accepted to Stockton University for fall 2018 semester. She would like to become a social worker and assist others with overcoming similar obstacles that she has faced. Savannah also works part time at Panera Bread and has earned her drivers license. Savannah would benefit from a laptop for school, to assist her with achieving the goals she has set out to achieve.
Dear Ben, we are so proud of Savannah. In order to help keep her on track we have ordred her a new Samsung laptop that will be at her door in two days. We are going a bit further with a check for $250 for Savannah to put in her account for things she needs at school that may not be covered under her loans/grants. Good luck Savannah! Keep up the great work!
LOVING PARENTS WHO TOOK IN 2 FOSTER BABIES GET AN EXTRA BIG SURPRISE FROM BIANCA’S KIDS AFTER SUBMITTING A WISH.
Here is the wish we received:
Dear Bianca’s Kids:
This is a twofer. Ben and his sister Brooklyn came into our care through the foster care system because of **** in the home. Although they have most of their immediate needs met I would love to be able to 'personalize' their room and decorate it to make it feel more like 'home'. They came into our care so quickly (3 hour notice) we did not have time to paint their room and they have cribs, but both are ready to make the transition into 'big' boy and girl beds. I would love to be able to buy a rug and dressers, just to make their room more cozy. Ultimately it looks like they may become part of our family forever and that means that down the road we are going to have to 'add' a bedroom, so this could also help us offset some of the cost of that so we would not have to buy these items at that time.
I HAVE to add GO EAGLES!!!! I struggled to actually fill this out and ask for help, but once I saw all the Eagles connection I kind of thought it was fate. My husband is a die hard fan for years and years and our kids are pretty much destine to be also. I'll attach a picture of us 'celebrating' the Superbowl. I'm happy to send a different picture of just them too if you need :).
This wish struck is in so many ways. First, we adore our foster parents. Anyone who is selfless enough to take two children out of the foster care system and love them forever deserve a wish. So, we committed to Spencer to help get her everything the kids need for their new “big boy and big girl” bedrooms.
Second, as die hard Eagles fans ourselves, we sympathized with these amazing foster parents who is live in Virginia but are Eagles fans. They can’t go to games, they are constantly among non-fans etc. and still, they dress up the entire family in Eagles gear. Lol
Given all this, we decided that granting a wish for the children alone was not enough. We also gave these amazing foster parents a huge surprise by bringing them to Philly, putting them up in a hotel and taking them to Eagles Training Camp to meet all of the Philadelphia eagles on July 27!
Here is the wish we received via our website:
Hello Bianca’s Kids,
A friend told me about your organization. I looked over your website and saw all of the amazing things you have done for kids with special needs and in special situations.
I have 3 children, one is biologically mine and 2 are mine through international adoption. The youngest is Macy. This month we will hit the 3 year mark of having her as part of our family. She is 10 years old and has mild CP, Epilepsy and Cortical Vision Impairment. She has limited vision due to brain damage caused by lack of oxygen at birth. She was abandoned at 10 months old so we know nothing about her exact birth situation. She is a kind and loving soul and melts my heart. With her multiple needs, she needs a lot of assistance in daily life. She has 2 things she loves to do- ride a bike and read. She knows her letters and we are working on small words. It will take a while but I think one day she will get there!! Riding a bike is just not a possibility though. I have been wanting to get her a WeeHoo bike for a while now. It's just not something we can afford right now. It would allow her to attach to Mommy or Daddy's bike and be a part of a family bike ride! Awesome!
This is what it looks like-
We are thrilled to grant this wish for you for so many reasons. One Wee Hoo Bike on its way for Macy! Don’t forget to send us pics of Macy enjoying her bike ride. ♀️
