WISH GRANTED - TWIN BROTHERS/FOSTER CHILDREN TEASED FOR NOT HAVING BIKES WILL BE TEASED NO LONGER THANK TO BK
We received the following wish from a CASA employee on behalf of two most adorable foster brothers.
Dear Bianca's Kids:
My wish is to be able to receive a bike for John . He has been moved several times and the resouce parents have told me he is always asking for a bike. When I have been there to visit we often talk about things he would like to do. One thing he always brings up is to be able to ride bikes with his friends. He has told me some of the neighborhood boys have been teasing him about not having the things they have. He has been through a lot of abuse in his life and therefore this hurts him alot. He feels left out when they go riding and he is unable to go with them. He has asked his resource parents about getting him a bike but they are unable to afford one. On my last visit he told me his brother and him are always being laughed at. Therefore I am asking for a bike for him to make him feel better about himself and to fit in with his friends. This boy has been through so much abuse in his life so having a bike although it won't solve his problems would be very helpful to make his days a little better. I have also sent in a wish for his brother and they look at the same bike each time they go to Walmart it is a 20" Chaos Boys BMX Bike. If you could please grant this wish I know it would mean the world to him. Thank you, Shirley
Shirley, no child should ever be teased. Especially for the things they can't afford. That's why we have 2 matching and shiny new Chaos bikes being delivered for the boys. 😊

We received a wish for Kobie who suffers from ptsd, Aspergers, anxiety and who is hearing impaired and a victim of bulling. Kobie has been through a lot. He recently lost his hearing aid and unfortunately his insurance will not cover an new one until next year.
Bianca's Kids is granting Kobie's wish by replacing his hearing aid.
Our 2016 wish granting day with the Philadelphia Eagles was a huge success!!! On August 13, 2016, Bianca's Kids took a number of struggling children to meet their NFL idols - the Philadelphia Eagles. Each child's story is different, but their wishes were the same. Take a look at these faces. Every child in their glory. Oh, what a day!!!
Kejohn is one of the most special teens we've ever met. In addition to his lifelong struggle with MD, this young man has also suffered the loss of his beloved mother. While he faces so much adversity in his life, this honor roll student is always happy and that is why to know him is to love him. To call Kejohn an inspiration would be an understatement! Kejohn really wanted to meet Eagles' 1st round draft pick Carson Wentz and he did! It doesn't get better than that!
Domenic (Little Dom") is a bright, energetic & adorable little boy. A couple of years ago, this perfectly healthy child began having seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. While his seizures take a lot out of him, this warrior doesn't let his condition get him down. Little Dom had a blast at Eagles Camp.
Samantha is a special young girl who suffers from Type I diabetes. She is also grieving the loss of her mother. Samantha loves sports and the Eagles! She loved every minute of her day with the Eagles especially meeting Swoop!
At three-years-old, Jaylyn was the biggest Eagles fan there. One would never know this adorable little girl has a rare and life-threatening disease. She stole every player's heart including Jon Dorenbos who graciously performed some of magic tricks for her. What a love bug!
AJ is 9-years-old and battling a brain tumor. This superhero is such a comedian and had us laughing all day! While his condition is serious, this sweet boy remains all smiles. No one had more fun than AJ.
Anthony is a young man with a big burden. At a time when he should be enjoying his childhood free from stress, this young man struggles with worry for his mom. You see, Anthony's mother is in a fight against brain cancer. We felt Anthony deserved a day of fun that might help him forget his worries and fears for even a few hours. While Anthony loved meeting the Eagles players, it appears he had a much better time meeting the Eagles' cheerleaders. Smiles for days!
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the Philadelphia Eagles Organization for hosting us once again and making a few kids feel so special. It was day none of us will soon forget.
