A new pair of Cowboy Boots for Carl who needs new shoes

Posted Jul 30, 2018
Carl just came into care with almost no belongings. He is use to wearing Cowboy boots and is in great need of a new pair. His current boots are cheap and coming apart at the seams. He is having a very difficult time adjusting to foster care and this wish will help show him there are some good things in life!

Carl is 18 years old and lives in NC

Carl is a country boy. He loves being outside in the mud and dirt, and tends to keep to himself by minding his own business. He enjoys anything that takes place outside and likes to stay around home. Watching TV is one of his favorite past times.

"Dear Carl, I hope you find the perfect pair of Cowboy boots. Life has a lot of ups and downs. When you are feeling down - never give up - you are going to be great! Always try to find the positive in difficult situations, keep your head held high and never stop believing in yourself. You've got this! I wish you all the best in everything you do. Warmest regards, Christina"

"Christina, Thank you for granting this special pair of boots for Carl! He was so excited to receive them and can't wait to wear them back to school! He is having to live in a domestic violence shelter at this time to keep him safe; please remember him in your thoughts and prayers. Your kindness is awesome!!"
