We relucantly came to the decision to post on this site and ask for help from others like Amanda, who devote their life to helping others and putting others before themselves. During a get-together with all of Amanda's close friends last weekend who gathered to pray over Amanda, I heard Amanda described by her friends more than once as a saint. That she is. I cannot understand why bad things happen to good people; why others feel compelled to steal what is not theirs. This does not affect just Amanda, but her family, her extended family, the school in China waiting for her to arrive, and all the children there who will be without a teacher until she can get there.
The irony is that Amanda has not shopped for herself in over three years. Has never gone out to purchase new outfits or shoes, or luxuries. She finally just this last couple of weeks bought new outfits to wear to school in China and new shoes. All of those items were stolen. They can be replaced, but it's just funny how she waited all these years to do something for herself and all that was taken from her. Her Child Life t-shirt, the only one she had, is gone. Her "Camp Rainbow" duffle bag she received from volunteering with cancer children is gone. All of the affirmations given to her by her extended family and close friends - which can never be replaced - are gone. The picture her autistic boy she has been working with the last 2 years that he drew of them together, with the words "Best Friends" ...that is gone too.
Could you please help her? She still has a dream to help children in China and fulfill the contract she has signed.
Any amount helps, but how do you put a price on a year-long dream dashed by someone who felt he/she needed someone else's belongings that badly?
