A BMX bike for Luis who is looking to treat himself with a practical and special gift this birthday!

Posted Jul, 26, 2017
Luis is a bright, funny young man who does not ask for much. He is in a loving, supportive resource family home right now and he does not want to ask them for any more than they are already giving him. Luis would love to have a bike of his own to get around to places he wants and needs to go, including putting in job applications and going on interviews.

Helena sent an update on the wish for Luis.

Jacqui: Hello, my name is Korin, and I am Luis' social worker at Greater Hope Foundation. I just wanted to write a brief note of thanks to you for granting this wish for Luis. Luis has been on his own most of his life and has not had much, nor does he ask for much, but I just know he will be over the moon about receiving this bike. Luis is learning how to be a part of a family and is learning how to be independent, as well as taking the time to enjoy life. Luis has become interested in riding bikes thanks, in part, to the other foster child in the home with him, and now looks forward to being able to be outdoors on a bike whenever possible. He will be excited that he no longer has to borrow a bike, but will have one of his own. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to extended my deepest and most sincere thanks for granting this wish for Luis. I know he will greatly appreciate it and it will be well used!!! **Korin A. Congdon, MSW - Clinical/Home Study Social Worker**

Thank you so much for sharing this with me! Your message made my whole day and I'm so happy to help Luis. I hope he enjoys owning his own bike. I will always remember when my parents surprised me with a bike I wanted for my birthday. I hope he thrives in his new family and shares many happy experiences with them.

Jacqui: He is doing so well in his new home and it is so exciting to be able to give him something to help him continue on his path forward. Thanks to people like you, you make the day just that much brighter for kids like Luis! I also wanted to say that, as a social worker, which is not just a job to me, but a calling, being able to work with a family like the one Luis has and a child like Luis, as well as getting to experience the generosity of people like you makes what I do that much better. So, thank you again and may your generosity be returned to you tenfold! *Korin A. Congdon, MSW - Clinical/Home Study Social Worker*
