MARCUS 

The following request was submitted by a family friend of Marcus. Please help us spread the love during a difficult time for Marcus: 

"Many of you may not know Marcus by name, but you were introduced to him in one of the most vivid photos taken last week. In the Charlottesville tragedy, Marcus was hit by the car that rammed into a crowd of people. Right before being hit, he pushed his fiancee to safety on the sidewalk. They both lost their friend Heather, who was killed as a result of the crash.”

Marcus is newly engaged and ready to start a new life. The youngest of four, Marcus comes from a big family. He’s driven to take care of the others around him. 

"But after suffering a broken leg, and the trauma from this tragedy from Charlottesville, he struggles,” his friend writes. "I want him to receive a bundle of love letters because we literally have an opportunity to displace hate and pain  with a tangible and written symbol of love and healing. He needs this. He needs to experience our love right now. He needs to know that we see him…and that we’re championing him as he recovers at home."

LEIGHA & KILE

We received a request for some new parents who are currently facing challenges that require huge amounts of hope, determination, and faith. Here is their story, as shared by a family friend:

“My friend Leigha gave birth to Henry Winston Hill who was born one day short of 25 weeks on 7/11/17. This strong little man is in the NICU, about an hour from his home. Leigha and her husband Kile are staying across the street from the hospital at a guest house so they can be closer to him and his ever changing needs. He is being named a "micro-preemie" and the doctors say that with babies this small, they often go two steps forward and one step back. Leigha is working on getting her milk production going which will be so beneficial for his health.

Leigha and Kile are far from family and friends, as they haven't been living in Oregon that long. I know they are trying to be strong each and every day as they watch Henry fight for his life. I know they need encouragement for their little man, for their marriage as it takes strength to walk thru something like this, and just encouragement to remember God is in control of all this.”

Little Henry has been stable and growing recently and we want to send a huge bundle of letters to his parents as they continue to encourage him to grow. Join us in showering them with love!

SARAH & AMANDA

We received a nomination for Sarah + Amanda and just knew we had to include them! Their friend shared:

“My letter request is for two sisters, Sarah and Amanda. These women are kind, thoughtful, and so helpful when others are in need. They lost their father to cancer at a young age, and their mother had cancer about six years ago and overcame it. This year though, her cancer returned and she passed away quickly.

Both Sarah and Amanda are wonderful people. Amanda is a middle school teacher and Sarah is finishing up her PhD. They are loving, caring, and positive people, but they have faced much grief in losing both their parents before their thirtieth birthdays. I cannot imagine this and I want to do anything I can to help them in their time of grief.

While I know Sarah and Amanda do have a vast support system, I want them to know that the world is so full of love and joy.”

Please join us in sharing encouragement with Sarah + Amanda!

KIRSTEN

Kirsten’s husband requested a bundle of letters for his wife because he has “spent the last eight years trying to convince her just how wonderful of a daughter, mom, and person that she is,” and he needs our help doing that now. He shared:

“My wife, Kirsten, is amazing. She is one of the most selfless people I know and has so much kindness to offer the world. The problem is that she has a hard time seeing her value and she spends a lot of time worrying that she's a failure as a preschool teacher, a daughter, and a mom. I know a lot of us have these thoughts, but for her it's a real anxiety.

Kirsten’s parents were extremely rough on her growing up; her dad was emotionally abusive and uninvolved, and her mom moved out when she turned sixteen. We began dating when she turned eighteen, and the emotional struggle that her dad put her through was so severe that I eventually convinced my parents to let her live with us till she moved to college.

My wife spends her day as a Montessori preschool teacher–shaping young minds the best she can, hoping that they understand how great they are. She is also a mom, trying to pour out all of this love and protection on our child that she never felt herself. As a wife, she does not open up to me completely for fear that I will find her unworthy. Kirsten is wonderful at all these things though. My hope is that with some extra help, she can start to realize how great she really is.”

ANNE

Tim wrote to us in hopes that we would write to his mother-in-law and offer her some much needed encouragement. He shared:

“Anne has been a single mother of four for the past thirty-eight years. She raised four phenomenal daughters while working full time as a mail carrier and part time sewing boat covers. While working two jobs, she also went back to school and received her teaching certificate. To enter the teaching field she took a substantial pay cut and the family faced lean times, but through it all she ensured that the girls had what they needed as well as volunteering for others and making whatever donations she could. All of the girls have been welcomed back into the home as adults for one reason or another. After a time, Anne retired from teaching but has continued to volunteer her time wherever she can. More recently, she has faced health problems and is feeling down about her self worth.”

Please join us in thanking this brave woman for all she does + encouraging her in her newest season of life!
