We were over at her BFFs house while the girls were playing, the subject of school came up, and the mom said that she dreads this time of year, as she isnt finacially able to get her kids things they want. THey have had a rough couple years, the two older boys were diagnosed with Autism, one with bi polar, and they had their house foreclosed on, so its understandable she has alot on her plate. I asked if she minded if I took her dd out shopping with us, as we were going to be picking up a few school things( didnt say exactly what, as I wasnt sure) SHe said oh sure, I bet she would love that. Anyhow we went out and they both got their supplies, a backpack( picked out one for each brother also) and an outfit and shoes. The BFF was beaming! She said that it was the funnest day of her life! :) DD also had fun.When we returned the mom was in shock, she didnt think her dd would be getting anything- just going for the ride, she was beyond happy. I said it was no problem and i was more than happy to do what I could to help out when I could.
This was something I had always wanted to do, but couldnt, so this year I was happy to be able to do this :) I normaly donate supplies for the supply drive in for the schools, but this was more personal. Just had to share, thanks for reading.
