I want to say thank you .. by giving something away to a child born in April - Edit for 'winners'
This year has perhaps been one of the worst in my life to be honest. I know many of you have been following the problems with my son and his court case for sexual assault against his step sister. My step moms cancer, my brothers alcoholism and suicide attempts/threats, my neice being put in jail and losing custody of her 2 year old.
I have every reason in the world to curl into a ball and give up to be honest. BUT.. I haven't.. and its largely due to the people here. Those who have supported me through everything.. even if it was just a few kind words. Even those who were hard on me and challenged my actions through my sons court case, you made me think, examine and confirm my actions to myself.
Anyway.. as a thank you I want to give away something.. It's my sons birthday this April and every year I am reminded that he almost did not make it. He was born emergency c-section with a cord prolapse, and although he has a few issues he is here and healthy for the most part.
So to celibrate it this year I want to send a gift to another April baby,
To help a mom in need to make their childs birthday a bit brighter. A gift from my child to yours.
So nominate your April born babies. Give me the age they are turning, date, and gender.. maybe an idea of what they like (especially for girls lol I have four boys)
Tell me why you feel you need help with their birthday.
Oh guess I should add a closing date since it has to come from Canada lol ... I'm going to give until Friday the 23rd so I can get it bought and sent on Monday the 25th hopefully.
I decided to choose two, a boy and a girl. I went with older kids because I think sometimes they tend to be overlooked. So the winners are:
Nicole1319 for her daughter turning 13
and friendlymom5 for her son turning 9
