A little angel from Oklahoma was abused by his biological parents and they gave him up for adoption, but when he went to the parents who adopted him, he handed them a letter that’ll give you tears…
Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, and emotional abuse.
DREAMCATCHERS FOR ABUSED CHILDREN, INC. is an official non-profit 501(c)3 child abuse & neglect organization. Their mission is to “educate the public on all aspects of child abuse such as symptoms, intervention, prevention, statistics, reporting, and helping victims locate the proper resources necessary to achieve a full recovery.”
Recently the organization shared a letter by one of the children who was abused by both his parents who were heavy alcoholics. It’s gut-wrenching to really see a child who had never seen real love and joy from his biological parents. All this boy ever saw was abuse, negligence and starvation. Some people are monsters…
One of the neighbours saw that something terrible was happening in a house nearby and felt sorry for the little boy that was in the house. He decided to alert the child protective services.
When the police came, they took the boy to the Dreamcatchers for Abused Children organization who made sure those horrible things will never happen to the child.
When the organization found perfect and suitable family for the child, it brings tears to my eyes to see what he wrote on a piece of paper.
This boy’s wish is that all he wants to have is normal things… here’s what he wrote:
“Things I want in my family:
I want food and water.
Don’t hit on me.
A house with running water and lights.
I want love.
Mom and dad don’t fight.
I want no drugs.
Don’t kill my pets.
Help with school.
Nice clean clothes.
No lice. No bug in house.
Clean bed with covers.
Don’t sell my toys.
Don’t get drunk.
Tv in house.
Let me keep my school stuff.
My own comb soap. Nice house and safe and heater coat.
You, reading this now, probably have all the things that this little boy wants. The takeaway from this is: NEVER ever take anything for granted. The life you have now is someones wish list.
