Peace family!! I’m writing you all because I know how much love surrounds the freecycle community. Three weeks ago my boyfriend and I took guardianship of his three nieces & nephews. They have moved from St. Louis, MO allll the way to NW DC. I am on my last year of college (thank god!) and with tuition, rent and court fees— I simply just cannot afford to buy them bikes. The middle child; whom has such anger issues and lack of worth for his life (trust me, they’ve been through a lot) has expressed to me that “The only thing I really want is a hover board or bike.” If anyone has any unused and working bikes for a 5, 7 and 8 year old please please consider passing them on to us! It’s time for them to have a chance at an actual childhood. We are willing to pick up!
Also, as a side note: I also wouldn’t mind for any parents to send me advice on how to deal with children who have anger issues (7 y/o boy), children who miss their mom A LOT (5 y/o boy), or even children who have been exposed to so much at a young age and are having a hard time just being a kid (8 y/0 girl). They have dealt with homelessness, addictive parent, and loss of a parent— so if you can send any advice with that background then please do so!! I will receive with love. If you know of any free therapy for children please also let me know! I’ve been googling, but the good stuff is always hard to find in this world. Peace & love to all of you always and thank you for reading!
