WIDOWED WITH 3 KIDS AT 34, SHE OVERCAME DEVASTATING GRIEF AND SUBSEQUENT ADDICTION. THIS MOTHER’S DAY WE HONOR A MOST DESERVING MOM - MEET BRANDY.
Here is a portion of the touching wish we received:
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
My name is Brandy, Im asking for a wish for my 3 kids because they lost their dad in a car accident in 2015 and life has been a struggle ever since. After my husband Austin died in a car accident, I had to do everything alone. I didnt have any friends of family helping (still dont) and I unfortunately turned to alcohol even though I almost never drank before.
The days and nights of me being stuck in complicated grief and being drunk were hell on my poor kiddos. They deserved so much better. Ive been sober 17 months now and life is slowly getting better.
My 12 yr old girl Eva struggles with debilitating anxiety. My 9 yr old Sophie still has issues with grief, and feels like we were chosen to go through bad times, be sort of forsaken. She says, "Why do bad things always happen to us?!" all the time. She is very emotional and sensitive and spends a lot of time upset.
My 6 yr old Roman has a lot of emotional struggles. He needs help from school and an outside agecy to get through the day at school. He is super frustrated and angry a lot, has a hard time and is very high strung. He has a hard time making friends and also feels alone at home being a little guy and having 3 females with no brothers or dad. He tries so hard.
My wish for my kids is that they just need a "win." They need to stop experiencing struggle for a bit and realize that life picks them for good things too. I know that is vague but I want something fun for them. I want them to have the experiencen of being picked just because they’re special and great and not always overlooked.
They’re rooms are very bland. The 2 youngest share and would love bunk beds, and it would be great for them to love their room. Or there is an amusement park a couple hours away called Silverwood. They’d love to go there. Or not far from Silverwood is a fun hotel called Triple Play where they have a water park, bowling, laser tag, and arcade. Id love to take them overnight and have a gift card for them to spend at the arcade. Theyd have a BLAST!
Thank you for reading this and allowing me to submit a wish for my kids.
Your wish and the honestly within touched our hearts in so many ways. Being a Mom is not easy under the best of circumstances. Losing your husband like you did is heartbreaking. Being sober for 17 months is something you should be so proud of. I know we are! Not to mention being widowed with 3 kids at such a young age. You’ve overcome so much, your love for your children is evident and indeed they deserve a win. It is for all these reasons that we chose you as our featured mommy this Mother’s Day to give your children that WIN.
For you dear Brandy, we have chosen your kids for a BIG WIN - a weekend vacation package for your precious babies to enjoy at Triple Play. AND because they are so special, that brand new set of bunk beds you wished for too!
HAPPY MOMMY’S DAY BRANDY! You deserve it. Enjoy your vacation and don’t forget to send pics.
