In Jan their father died leaving these 3 beautiful children to their mom. Unbelievably, last month their mother died too leaving them orphaned. Meet our next Christmas wish recipients & the angel that stepped up for them
The Friedrich children - Nikki (13), Billy (14) and Brandi (18) who suffers from a genetic disability and requires round the clock care are three loving kids who experienced the worst trauma possible. The loss of both parent.
These precious children suffered a tragic loss when their father died suddenly in Jan 2017. Their mother Karen did the best she could to pick up the pieces and raise her children alone. As if that wasn’t enough, last month their mother died too. The Friedrich children were left orphaned and are all just teenagers.
It is at times like these that angels emerge. For these kids it was their neighbor/friend Eileen Garrity (in the Photo with the Kids below) who stepped up to take legal guardianship of all three Friedrich Kids. As you can imagine, no one is financially ready to take on 3 teens at once with no warning. Eileen was very worried about how she was going to provide Christmas gifts for the kids.
We received a wish for help with Christmas for the kids & Eileen. We spoke the Eileen yesterday to thank her for her incredible love and sacrifice and told her not to worry about Christmas anymore. We are sending Eileen a check for $1,000.00 to provide the kids a great Christmas. She could not be more grateful.
There ARE Angels among us.
