LITE-FM Delivers Christmas Wish to Nampa Mom Who Selflessly Opened Her Home
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.
Michelle wrote to us about her daughter, Gabriella. Gabriella's been an amazing single mom to her 12-year-old daughter. She's spent the last few years building her own lash business and it wasn't easy. At one point, she was balancing beauty school, lashing her first clients in her living room and being a mom. She's now inspiring other women to do the same by offering one on one training.
Being a single mom isn't easy. Being a small business owner isn't easy. But Gabriella's always up for a challenge and was presented with the opportunity to take charge of another one. Earlier this year, she found out that three of her daughter's teenage cousins were about to become homeless while their mom was facing some rough times.
She couldn't let that happen and ended up inviting the girls to come live with her. It was an easy decision, but financially it's been a struggle going from having two mouths to feed to give. Michelle was so proud of what her daughter did that she reached out to us to see if we could help put some gifts under the tree and make sure there was enough food on their table on Christmas Day.
Holly, the elf who reads through all of our Christmas Wish nominations and sets up the deliveries, saw Gabriella's story and decided that she and her husband would adopt them this year! We sent Brittiany out in the Treasure Valley Subaru Delivery Sleigh to drop off the goodies they picked out for her!
