A little boy from Oklahoma was abused by his parents and they gave him up for adoption, but on the first day, he went to the new parents and handed them a letter. What he writes is Gut-Wrenching: – Check the comments

Dreamcatchers for Abused Children is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reforming abused children. According to their website, their primary goal is to “educate the public about all aspects of child abuse, such as symptoms, intervention, prevention, statistics, reporting and to help victims find the appropriate resources necessary to achieve a full recovery.” Recently, the organization shared a heartbreaking list written by an Oklahoma child who ended up in the foster care system after suffering severe abuse from both parents who were heavy alcoholics. 

The boy has never known the love or joys that childhood normally brings. All he experienced was neglect and starvation. Years passed before a neighbor noticed horrible things happening in the boy’s home and decided to alert social services. Once police were involved, the boy was taken to the Dreamcatchers for Abused Children organization who ensured the little one ended up in a loving new home. Eventually, when the organization found the perfect family and shared the good news with the boy, he made a wish list where he included all the things he wanted in his new forever home. Needless to say, the list melted the hearts of many people.

Many have taken the time to say that the things on the list are not something a child should dream of because they should have them automatically since most of them are just basic needs. Here is the list : “The things I want in my family: I want food and water. Don’t punch me. A house with running water and lights. I want love. Mommy and Daddy don’t fight. I don’t want drugs. Don’t kill my pets. Assistance at school. Nice clean clothes. no lice No insects in the house. Clean house. Clean bed with blankets.

Don’t sell my toys. Treated fairly. Don’t get drunk. TV in the house. Let me keep my school things.” Nice shoes. My own soap in comb. Beautiful house and safe and heated coat. Toothbrush.” This list reminds us that we should never take the things that we have for granted. Please SHARE this story with your family and friends on Facebook!
