A tablet for Chrissy who loves to read

Posted May 15, 2018
Chrissey has had a rough life with a lot of abuse, neglect, trauma, and disappointment. She does not trust people and feels very alone. She has siblings all throughout the system who she does not get to see often if at all and having a tablet to be able to communicate through email, or video chat might help restore Chrissy's faith in humanity.

Chrissy is 17 years old and lives in Arlington, TX

Chrissy is a young, petite little lady who has been in foster care since she was little due to a history of abuse, neglect, and so many other traumas. She has had many suicidal attempts and negative thoughts, especially after a recent failed adoption. Chrissy has little trust in people and has a since built a wall. She has siblings throughout the system who she does not see often if at all. Chrissy is very intelligent and her favorite activity is reading.

Anonymous grants the wish for Chrissy! Thanks Anonymous.

Chrissy, I was drawn to your wish for 3 reasons: 1) My sister, Krissy, taught me how to read. 2) The poet Maya Angelou immersed herself in books during her own diifficult childhood circumstances. 3) Most important, I hope you enjoy reading and, perhaps, sharing your own voice through writing, and using the tablet to connect with your siblings. There are pockets of joy in our speck of the world, and I hope they find you in both little ways and big ways. Kellie in Rhode Island, thinking of you.
