A LITE-FM Christmas Wish for Mike
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.
We've known Mike's fiance for quite a few years, but know much about the man that makes her so happy. That's why we were really touched when Jamie wrote to us about someone who's been like a brother to her since they were in high school.
Mike's overcome a lot to become the man and father he is today. He's overcome addiction, the loss of a child and left a marriage where his ex-wife was still using drugs. He knew how important it was to get his son as far away from that situation as he could, so he dedicated himself to getting full custody. It's been almost two years since we was awarded full custody.
Mike's made a lot of sacrifices to give his son the childhood he didn't have, including giving up a job driving trucks because it took him away from his son for long periods of time. His new job meant a pay cut, but it allows him to be present for the special moments in his son's life.
Mike and Ashley have had some ups-and-downs with health issues, working multiple jobs and car troubles, but they always face them with a positive attitude. That's why what happened to them earlier this week was such a gut punch. Mike came home to find his front door open and their home ransacked. Whoever broke in took some precious family heirlooms and a handful of things that could be replaced.
While we know we can't replace the things that had been passed down through generations, we knew we could help replace the things this hardworking, positive dad lost just days before the holidays!
