WISH GRANTED - on this #GivingTuesday we are granting a wish and GIVING to a precious little boy with autism. Meet Antonio.
We recieved a wish via our website at Biancaskids.org from a woman named Deanna. Deanna explained that her adorable one-year-old Anthonio was diagnosed with autism and severe sensory spectrum. Accordingly, Deanna's wish was for some assistance with sensory age appropriate toys for Antonio. Antonio's therapists had suggested such toys, a weighted blanket, blocks, etc. but these items can be very costly and mom couldn't afford them all at this time. Deanna reached out to us after reaching out to varoius other sources for assistance with no luck.
We are glad to report that her last stop was the best stop. Today, we granted Deanna wish with a plethora of sensory toys, a weighted blanket, a bubble machine, and an age apprpriate tablet for Antonio. We know how beneficial these items can be to a child's progression and Antonio doesn't have to wait any longer for them. Everything will be delivered to our little buddy in a couple days.
Happy holidays Antonio!
We received a wish from a wonderful woman named Anissa. Anissa explained that her niece Aisha Dixon was brutally murdered. Aisha left behind 12 precious children.Unbelievably, some of Aisha’s children witnessed their mother’s murder.
One of Aisha’s children “Zakiyah” is Anissa’s great-niece. Anissa asked for help with 2 gifts Zakiyah was wishing for but were both too expensive for Anissa to pay for.
Here is the actual wish we received:
My wish for my great-niece, it is to see her smile. This year has been a difficult year for this child. Her mother was brutally murdered in front of 3 of her other siblings by her boyfriend. My niece (her mother) left behind 12 children and this has been really hard for my family. I had her to write down 2 gifts she wanted for Christmas and she wrote, she wanted a Juno Elephant and L.O.L Surprise 2-in-1 Glamper. I would love to see her smile as she open up these gifts. She has gone through so much. Please Google her mom’s story (Aisha Dixon is her mother’s name). I pray that we hear from someone soon about granting her wish. I thank you all in advance.
Anissa, we are so sorry for your incredible loss. We are ordering both gifts for your great-niece.
Merry Christmas from Bianca’s Kids.
WISH GRANTED for sweet sister concerned her special needs brother & family wouldn’t have a good Christmas. Meet Anastasia.
Here is the wish we received via our website:
Dear Bianca Kids,
My name is Anastasia and I would like to tell you about my family. I am the oldest of three kids. I have 2 brothers, Pedro who is 17 with special needs and Anthony who is 10. My mom and step dad are hard works. My mom is a substitute teacher and my stepdad lost his job two months ago. I know that they are having a tough time because there holidays are coming. They were going to take us to Disney World but they used that money to pay bills. I’m not asking for a vacation but maybe some gifts for my brothers. I don’t want them to be disappointed about not getting any gifts.
Anastasia, we love sisters like you. Glad we could grant your wish with a check for $500 to help make Christmas awesome for you guys. Merry Christmas from Bianca’s Kids.
WISH GRANTED for 2 beautiful babies who recently lost their mother to addiction. We’re helping to make their 1st Christmas without mommy a little more bearable.
I am writing this letter to you to wish for a Christmas for my nieces this year. Here is where their story begins on April 18th, 2019 my nieces Alannah (8) & Savannah Cook (4) lost their beloved mother to the battle of addiction. Their father is not around either. So essentially they don’t have either of their parents anymore. But with my parents picking up the financial part of the loss of their daughter, things have been hard and have been behind on everything lately. My parents are the ones to always put themselves last and everyone else including children and people that aren’t their kids before them. They are such a kind and caring family. I’m not just saying this because they are my parents but this is who they are. They are immensely struggling between trying to keep the bills in order to provide for my nieces as well now and have been since we have had to burry my sister/their daughter. Alannah and Savannah love and adore their mother to this day and still don’t know how or why God took their mother at only 28 years young. This will be their first Christmas and holiday season without their mother & I know they are so worried with being able to provide any gifts for them this year under the Christmas tree. If you guys would be so kinds just for one gift each they would be so thankful and appreciative and it would make their first Christmas without their Mommy so much less of a hard day for them. Thank you so much for taking the time to even read my letter to you and thank you for taking it into consideration at all.
Thank you Alannah & Savannah’s Aunt,
Maci, you are an awesome aunt. While we could never heal their hearts, we can help make Christmas a little easier on your parents by sending them a check for $500 to Christmas shop for the girls. God bless all of you during this difficult holiday season.
WISH GRANTED for adorable little warrior battling cancer for years whose parents just needed a little Christmas break. Meet Jack.
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
Cancer... a diagnosis that is one of the most feared things one can face. Well that became this toddlers reality, which has prompted me to make this request. Jack my (son) just turned 5 but was 2 years old when he was diagnosed with B cell leukemia in Nov 2016. Since that horrific day he has been receiving aggressive chemo treatment. The treatments come with various complications, but added health issues make treatments even more difficult. Beside cancer Jack has a metabolic disorder that affects how he absorbs medications making treatments risky due to excessive toxicity that has almost taken Jacks life. This child has faced MANY challenges from treatment including decreased motor skills resulting in intensive physical therapy and occupational therapy to retain his muscle tone and fine motor skills. Through out this journey Jack has shown incredible strength, he is such a little warrior. What Jack has endured over these last 3 years is heart wrenching. Through these horrific times we haven’t given up or lost faith.
My Wish is for Bianca’s Kids to give us the opportunity to go Christmas shopping to pick out things for Jack without worrying about the financial burden this holiday season.
Kari, God bless your strength! We have a check for $500 coming your way to help you do Xmas shopping for Jack without financial stress. Merry Christmas to you from Bianca’s Kids.
WISH GRANTED - little boy lives out his dream to be a police officer for the day thanks to a looking Police Chief. Meet Payton
We recently received a wish from Payton’s mommy. She explained that her beautiful boy has been dreaming of being a police officer for the past 4 years. Due to his medical issues, Payton’s mom felt his dream may never come to fruition. Her wish to Bianca’s Kids was to get Payton to experience the next best thing and become a police officer f...or the day.
To that end, we contacted the amazing Chief Empey of the Jordan Minnesota police department. Chief Empey, without hesitation, agree to help us make this wish a realty. Today Chief Empey and his staff went above and beyond to make Payton’s day beyond special. Oh, and we sent Payton the fabulously authentic uniform he wore today. Lol
Thank you Chief Empey and Everyone at Jordan (MN) Police Department. We appreciate you for giving Payton an experience he won’t soon forget.
Thanks to our friends at Integrity Automotive in Williamstown, NJ., this mom is never going to be forced to take a bus or an Uber to work or school again. It’s hard enough to go to work, then add school to it and a 3 yr old baby to care for WITH NO TRANSPORTATION. We had to change that.
We received a wish for Gianna from her manager Maria. Marie explain how hard Gianna saved to buy herself a used car that turned out to be a lemon and because of it she had no transportation or money to buy another car. She explained that Gianna is one of the hardest working people and that even without transportation she is never late and never misses work.
Gianna was in utter shocked when we surprised her with a shiny red Nissan at Integrity Automotive. She never stopped crying. ♥️ see our prior post for the video of this wish.
We love to help our hard-working single moms and this was a perfect opportunity. A huge thank you goes out to our friends at Integrity Automotive for partnering with us on this wish. We couldn’t have done it without you.
WISH GRANTED - for amazing parents of 5 kids (3 bio, 1 adopted, 1 foster). These selfless parents deserve a fabulous night to themselves.
Here is the wish we received via our website at BiancasKids.org:
Dear Bianca’s Kids:
I have a dear nursing friend named Jessie who is a wonderful child advocate and has recently adopting a lil’ guy and is currently fostering his younger sister (plans for adoption as well). They also have 3 kiddos of their own. Her lil’ guy just was Dx: with seizures. Terrible epilepsy and they are going through it. She is a pediatric nurse and a wonderful individual.
This month is Jessie & her husband’s birthdays & their anniversary and it’s epilepsy awareness month as well. Could Bianca’s kid shed some sunshine to this wonderful family? Maybe a gift card for take out? They are doing such great things for their family and I just hope they could catch a break. Thanks for the consideration.
Dear Barb, sometimes the best thing we can do for our foster/adopted kids is to give their amazing parents a break. Especially when they already had 3 of their own! For this wish we’ve decided to gift Jesse a check for $500 so that she and her husband can go out for a fancy dinner to celebrate their birthdays and anniversary. We’ve also included some extra money in there for a babysitter. What selfless individuals. Hope they enjoy their night out.
My name is Portia and I’m a mother of 2 special need children named Derek and Aniylah. It’s trying and a difficult job caring for not 1 but 2 disabled children under 10 years old. Every day is a struggle making ends meet on little income.
My wish this year is a struggle free Christmas. My daughter just had 2 major to revise her shunt(something to drain fluid from around the brain) which left me out of work and unable to pay bills. Which led to me using my Christmas money to pay bills or being homeless was my only options. I don’t want them to have the newest or most expensive toys out just a tree and a few things to put under it. All year long we go without I just want a relaxing day for my kids one day out of the year. This was her 40th surgery she has had a pretty hectic life and I would love it if she can have one day to feel like a kid. Love,
Dear Portia, God bless your strength! We have a check for $500 coming your way to do your Xmas shopping for the kids. You deserve a struggle free holiday.
Wish Granted - His life changed forever in April with a cancer diagnosis. Today he is our wish recipient - meet Corbin.
In April of this year 12-year-old Corbin was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a rare, aggressive, life-threatening form of cancer that requires immediate treatment. Currently, Corbin is finishing up radiation and chemotherapy and will begin immunotherapy next month.
Corbin’s mom submitted a wish via our website at BiancasKids.org for a Apple Watch. It’s something Corbin really wants and we are confident it will keep him entertained during some of his long treatment sessions. One Apple Watch is being delivered to Corbin tomorrow.
Enjoy your watch Corbin. Stay strong buddy. You got this!
