Sister Looking to Reunite With Disabled Brother After Five Years — 2014 Home for the Holidays Finalist 1
This finalist is entering on behalf of herself and her brother. He's disabled, and the two of them haven't been together in five years. Here's your chance to reunite them:
"I wasn't sure if I should choose whether or not I was entering for myself or on behalf of someone else because if chosen we are both winners! My Christmas wish would be to have my brother flown down here from Missouri, and I suppose it is best to say that I am entering on his behalf.. I haven't seen D in about 5 years. He has been talking about wanting to visit for some time now but the funds just aren't there for either of us. D has been disabled all of his life and though he leads an independent lifestyle his monthly income is modest and provides him with little extra by the time the end of the month rolls around. I am unable to help provide a way for him to visit us as we have 2 of my daughters living with us as well as one of my daughters 2 young children, which are D’s great nieces, he has never seen them and it is his wish to meet my beautiful grandbabies. C was 3 in July and P will be 1 in February. Christmas would be a wonderful time to reunite and just enjoy each other's company … without this opportunity, Lord only knows when or if we may ever get the chance again ... Thanks so much for your consideration. God Bless and Merry Christmas to you all."
