    I am appying for help due to my 12 year old foster son. He has lost both of his parents and his grandparents which is how he landed in my care. Although my husband and I try very hard we will not be able to provide him with anything for Christmas. I am hoping you can help us since he deserves the world. He got 4 A's in school and is an all around great kid with a wonderful outlook on the world, He lost his father earlier this year due to a drug overdose, and a grandparent right before that. Even tho ugh he has no family left he still only looks on the bright side. I admit he is aware that my husband and I struggle to provide for him. I feel that there is something that we can do. My husband is going to the doctor to find out what is wrong. I am also sick and although I am going to the doctors as well, it is causing some financial difficulties.

    Please we aren't looking for help for us......

    We are only asking for a Christmas for our son.

    Nancy thats a hard one to swallow, and I always think you have the hardest part of this endeavor every year. I feel a bit guilty as I haven't been able to help as much this year as in the past.
