Born in Taiwan 2005
Being loved in Canada
If there were fairy godmothers that could grant wishes, one of the wishes I would grant to the children of the world would to be for them to have the generous loving heart of Jia-Xin. At such an early age she has reached such an awakening of wanting to give back – this not beyond her years but an enlightenment that most of us fail to achieve in a lifetime. She has inspired and touched many with this simple dream.
Jia-Xin’s father contacted me via email, asking if I could fulfill a wish for his little girl. Adopted from Taiwan, she felt she never celebrated Christmas when she was in the country. Now that she had experienced the holidays with a loving family, she wanted to be able to provide gifts to those who would gain the most from a little warmth during this season.
Over thirty people were involved in aiding to the donations that started with the wish of one little girl. Over a dozen “adult” volunteers were involved in the workshops. Five households, 20 kids directly impacted the days of gifting and workshop – who knows how this joy reverberated beyond to others? What is so important is beyond just having love in her heart, Jia-Xin vocalized her wish. Her loving parents Jeremy and Tracie listened to their child and took action to make it all possible. Thank you!
