Kidd Kraddick – The Tears Never Fail

18 Dec

Every year the Kidd Kraddick in the morning show does a bit called “Breaking & Entering”. Multiple families are nominated by someone they know. These families are struggling, & are usually the givers in these situations.

This years it was the Richard’s family. They were nominated by a friend, Carmen, to be chosen for Breaking & Entering. Here is Carmen’s letter to Kidd Kraddick about them:

Dear Kidd-

I’ve been friends with the family I’m writing you about for 5 years. It’s a wonderful family of 6 who has had a rough year. The mom is battling breast cancer and is in her third treatment. The oldest son was hit by a truck last year and now suffers behavioral and other issues as a result. Their middle son is autistic.

This family is always doing things for other people. They opened their home to a family of 5 after the parents got laid off from their jobs. They footed all the bills to help this family while they were down on their luck. They are very humble people who never ask for anything, but they are always first to volunteer their time, limited resources, or lend an ear to anyone who needs it. In fact at this time last year, they adopted a family who needed some extra help to make their holiday more special. Now my friends could use some extra help to give their family an amazing Christmas that will never be forgotten.

With medical bills for the special needs of two kids, plus recurring bills for cancer treatments and everything else that has happened this year, this family has fallen behind on everything. They are such an amazing family and try to live by God’s word in everything they do. The mom is super supportive of her kids and their activities in spite of what she is going through. Three of her kids are involved in a not for profit cheer and dance organization, and mom is there for every performance or competition, regardless of how she feels.

I’ve talked to them about Christmas this year and the mother told me that she would be making the majority of the kids Christmas gifts this year. I would love it if you guys could help make this the extra special Christmas that this family deserves. They are always putting others first, so I want them to know what it feels like to have a worry free Christmas that they will never forget.

I bawled the WHOLE way to work. It never fails, I cry EVERY year. Click here to see them in action!

The other families who have been nominated are posted here, so that hopefully someone else will adopt them & help them out. I have decided that next year I will look for a family in the GNO & adopt them as opposed to giving gifts to the millions of family members I have. These families are so much more in need than my family is, & I think it would be so fulfilling to help even ONE of them out. It makes me so grateful to know that I have a family who supports me, & that I am so blessed to not be in this type of situation. I don’t think I could hold it together like some of these people do. They are truly amazing.
