We received a wish from a woman named Amanda who had two beautiful children. A girl-Elizabeth who was 4 and a newborn son-Xaiver who was 9 weeks old. Amanda's wish was heartfelt and simple. She wished for clothing and shoes for her daughter that fit correctly (as she had none) & for her son, diapers and few outfits.
So a few weeks later, after all shopping was done for Xaiver & Elizabeth, we loaded up the truck and were heading to Amanda's home to surprise her with her granted wish. Upon contacting Amanda with the great news and to ask for her address, through her sobbs she advised that Xaiver died suddenly the day prior. To explain the feelings that resulted from this ironic twist of fate is impossible.
Subsequently, Amanda changed her wish for Baby Xaiver. She pleaded for help in providing Xaiver a funeral. Given the fact that Amanda could not afford clothing - a funeral was definitely not something she could afford and Xaiver deserved the best. Accordingly, we shifted gears and four days later Xaiver's funeral services were fit for an angel. We provided Amanda's daughter with her wish items, one of which she chose to wear to her brother's funeral.
The one thing we are certain of is that there are no coincidences. We chose to grant Xaiver's wish for a reason. We just could never have anticipated that the wish we would ultimately grant him would be his last.
Rest in peace sweet boy.
