Wish list written by a foster child in Oklahoma. Dreamcatchers for Mistreated Children is a charitable organization with the mission of helping ɑbused children lead healthier lives.
According to the information provided on their website, the primary objective of this organization is to “educate the public on all aspects of child ɑbuse such as symptoms, intervention, prevention, statistics, reporting, and helping victims locate the proper resources necessary to achieve a full recovery.”
The group recently disseminated a devastating list that was penned by a boy in Oklahoma who was placed in the foster care system as a result of having to endure terrible maltreatment at the hands of both of his parents, who were strong drinkers. The young man was deprived of affection and the happiness that often comes with childhood. Neglect and malnutrition were his only experiences in life.
A number of years passed before a neighbor became aware of the horrifying circumstances that existed in the boy’s household and made the decision to contact social services.
After the intervention of the police, the youngster was handed over to the Dreamcatchers for ɑbused Children organization. This group saw to it that the child was placed in a new and caring family as soon as possible.
Finally, when the organization discovered the ideal family and shared the wonderful news with the kid, he produced a wish list on which he listed all of the items he want to have in his new home that would be there for him forever.
It goes without saying that many people’s hearts were warmed by the list. Many people took the time to leave their thoughts on how the items on the list are not something a child should aspire to obtain because they should already have them because the majority of them are simple fundamental requirements.
This is the list that we have:
“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 dr-ugs.
Don’t kiII 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.
This list is a reminder that we should never take the things we have for granted.
