A gift towards the trip of a lifetime for Michael who truly deserves this amazing opportunity

Posted Nov 10, 2017
Michael has been given the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to Europe with his Spanish class! Because he has been in foster care for the past 4 years, financially he cannot make this happen but he really, really wants to go and has worked so hard in school to get this chance. This young man deserves this trip and so much more. This beautiful experience will make such a positive impact in Michael’s life.

Michael is 16 years old and lives in San Francisco, CA

Michael became a dependent of San Francisco County due to physical abuse in the home. He was removed from his home and lost his father to cancer in the same year. Michael suffers from depression and anxiety and has had several disrupted foster placements. He has since received mental health treatment and is now slowly learning to cope with his life struggles. He currently lives with an aunt but often expresses how much he misses the hugs and kisses of his mother. Michael is a very intelligent and bright young man that excels in school. In 8th grade he was on the honors society program and he is currently in the bio medical track in high school. This resilient young man will, no doubt, be very successful in life!

The Wish Story

Lindsay grants the wish for Michael! Thanks Lindsay.

Hi Michael, I just wanted to tell you that you are enough. You are more than enough. You are thousand times enough. I know that that the world is hard and that sometimes life can be epically unfair, but it is not ALWAYS this way. There is so much beauty out there, sometimes (and some days) it's difficult to see, but it's there. You just have to be strong enough to continually look for it. And I know that you are. You are going to make this world a better place. You are amazing! Lindsay
