Family #2 – Adopted – This military family of 9 is struggling to make ends meet. Dad is recently home from an overseas deployment. Mom also served in the military and is now home with 7 children under the age of 13, including 4.5-year-old Girl, Girl, Girl, Girl, Boy quintuplets, a 12-year-old boy and a 3-year-old boy. We’d like to make this holiday a little easier for this southern family.

Family #3 – Adopted – This east coast family with 6-year-old triplet girls and an 8 year-old boy are going through a hard time. Mom was recently diagnosed with cancer and is on medical leave from work. We’d like to make this holiday a little easier by showing them they are not alone.

Family #4 – This southern hard-working family has 18-month-old Boy, Boy, Boy, Girl, Girl, Girl sextuplets. They are struggling financially and we’d like to help them have a special holiday. The children wear size 24 month or 2T. This family lives near a Target and a Walmart.

Family #5 – This family is headed by a single mom who is worried about having to move to a 2-bedroom apartment with 3-year-old Boy, Girl, Girl triplets before the end of the year. We’re sure Christmas gifts are pretty low down on the list, so we’d like to fill that gap. This family lives near a Walmart and a Target.

Family #6 – This mid-west family are survivors of several bad storms that have caused them to lose many things that can never be replaced. This family is struggling financially to not only make repairs on their home, but to give their children a special holiday. This family has 19-year-old Girl, Boy, Boy triplets, along with a 16-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. The children wear junior size 9/10 (female), men’s size 34×32, men’s size 32×32, junior size 9 (female), junior size 27×27 slim fit (male), and shirts, large. This family lives near a Walmart and a Target.

Family #7 – Adopted– This military family has four children – 18-month-old Girl, Girl, Girl triplets and a 9-year-old Boy. They move around a lot and have landed on the west coast for the next 2 years. Dad is also in school, as is Mom. Their hope is to make a better life for their children, but times are hard now. We’d like to help them this year. Their wish list includes: For the Boy – pants size 8, shirts youth medium, books, Legos and Star Wars or Skylander toys. The girls wear size 2T and would like any age appropriate toys and stuffed animals. This family lives near Target and Kohls.

Family #8 – Adopted – This southeast family with 5-year-old triplets – identical twin boys and a girl has had their world turned upside down. One of the boys got very sick last year. Their world has completely changed. Both parents are self-employed, which is good because they can be home to take care of the kids, but hard because if they’re not working, there is no money coming in. They spend many hours each month in a hospital several hours away. They drive an old car and there are lots of expenses associated with overnight stays, transportation and medical bills. We’re sure Christmas gifts are pretty low on their list, so we’d like to help them make the holidays special.

Family #9 – This west coast family is headed by a single mom with 17-year-old triplet Boys, who have several medical issues, which makes it hard for Mom to consistently go to work. Mom is worried about so many things that we’d like to help her by giving her a gift card to help ease her financial burden and buy a few needed things for the boys.

Family #2 – This east coast family had triplet boys born in May at 29 weeks – only two of the boys survived. One of the boys came home at the end of the summer.  The second baby came home two months later after having successful surgery. This family has a long road ahead of them with future surgeries.  We’d like to make this holiday a little easier for them.

Family #3 – ADOPTED: This southwest family with triplet boys born in August had a life-changing event occur on the day they were born.  Mom died giving birth.  The family also has a 6-year-old son and although Dad is doing an amazing job, life can be hard for a parent alone.  We’d like to make this holiday a little easier by showing them they are not alone.

Family #4 – A Mom of 4-year-old quadruplets is moving away from a domestic violence situation. Dad has been  arrested. The family is hoping not to have to go to a shelter, but a grandparent died recently and the other grandparent has health issues. They are hoping to move in with relatives, so they can all take care of each other, but no matter where they go, we’ll be able to get gifts to them. We’d like to help this Mom give her kids a special holiday during this stressful time. Gift cards to Walmart and Amazon would be helpful for basic necessities as well as gifts.

Family #5 – ADOPTED: This southeast family with 4-year-old triplets – identical twin boys and a girl has had their world turned upside down. The family was out at a park playing and one of the kids got sick. They rushed to the hospital – the boy was pale and very sick, but they had trouble figuring out what the issue was. Hours later, after a transfusion and a trip to a bigger hospital they learned the boy has Leukemia.  Their world has completely changed.  Both parents are self-employed, which is good because they can be home to take care of the kids, but hard because if they’re not working, there is no money coming in. Every week the boy has to get chemo in a hospital several hours away. They drive a 10 year old car and there are lots of expenses associated with overnight stays, transportation and medical bills.  We’re sure Christmas gifts are pretty low down on the their list, so we’d like to fill that gap.

Family #6 – This family is from Texas and are survivors of Hurricane Harvey.  They lost everything, but this family of 7 is very strong and determined to rebuild their lives.  They could use funds for Amazon, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart and Target.

Family #7 – This hard working east coast family has 4-year-old triplet girls, a 5-year-old girl and an 8-year-old girl.  One of the triplets has had several surgeries, and will need at least one more as well as long-term care.  This family is just grateful to have their whole family together as each child brings something very special to the family.  Money is tight because of all the care required, and we’d like to help this family have a special holiday this year.

Family #8 – ADOPTED: This family is going through a very tough time.  Dad has cancer and is unable to work right now.  This family has Girl, Boy, Boy triplets who just turned 6 years old.  They struggle every month with the bills and are worried about heating the house this winter.  If we could help them with groceries and warm clothing, they could use the money they do have to pay the mortgage and heat the house.  This family lives near a Target and a ShopRite Supermarket.

Family #9 – ADOPTED: This family of six had a very difficult year.  One of the quadruplets, had an extreme reaction to a drug. Due to insurance complications, the family has spent all of their savings and retirement savings on treatment.  Let’s give them some support through gift cards or fun gifts for the “kids”. Mom and Dad could use some encouragement also.
