WILLIAMS STORY amazing story is one of a kind, he was an amazingly outgoing person since the day he was born. He was born with a severe case of biolateral clubfoot. So from a week old William had surgeries and casting in both legs for years. He never once couldn't do something he set his mind to. Learned to walk with cast on and everything. He's alwayse been an out going person . He loves helping people. William also has ADHD and it's been a struggle for him so a couple  years back he started doing lemonade stands then it went to dog poop clean up to yard work to mowing lawns using weed eaters then he started helping construction workers and he loves it. He does all kinds of work and loves to learn new trades then he even got awarded a trip for a week by the city of fernley for helping around town and cleaning up the streets and yards of many people. He is always trying to make people smile .  William is always on the move and wants to help and make people smile . And that's why you are now even reading this is because William helped me his mom in a way that is unremarkable and so inspiring and loving . I'm very proud of him . Our family is going through a rough time in every aspect so anything you give is appreciated more than you know... Thank you all so much and God bless..

This is Krystal,  I am William mom. I have written this about 50 times trying to find the right words and so far if not so there's some things that I've been wanting to say to all you . specially who have supported and helped our family. So a lot of people have different feelings and opinions on our situation. Some good some bad and alot of love. So i want to clear some things up and let you all know a little about me and my family and there are some things that I need to say.


I want nothing but the best for my children,  just as any parent would! Through out my life,  I've made some good choices and I've made some bad. I had all my kids by the time I was 19 years old I just turned 17 when I had my oldest.  and I made a lot of choices when I was younger that I'm not proud of but I cannot change the past so I moved on from it but a lot of people haven't .  I have done everything in my power for so many years to make sure my kids are taken care of and stay out of trouble to be good people and stay true to themselves. as any child they have had hiccups and made some not so good choices but they are kids kids tend to do those things.  but overall my kids are amazing beautiful children and I am so beyond proud of them. I love them with all my heart.

you know there are certain things and your life that you can control and there's certain things you can't. here n example ,  if you don't water your plant, your plant will not survive...right? Ok so that is something you can control.

but  something you can't control is when like whe you water water water  everything is going good and then you one morning you wake up in the plant  has died no explanation no warning no nothing . thats out of your control. Right?.. Ok so
the things that have went on recently with my family have been things that I have had no control over. Last year we just started over after losing our house due to the owner selling it. No warming no nothing just boom in a blink of an I homeless. So its been s rough year and that's the most challenging and heart aching thing that I've been struggling with . but it's like damn when something is out of your control and it changes your entire life and not for the good and causes all the emotional heartache and fear for everyone. It can really make you depressed specially when it just keeps happening to us …

our family has been going through a lot of challenging, heartbreaking and scary times over the past few months. it has been horrible rollercoaster ride filled with so many emotions and different levels of horrible things that that nobody let alone any family should ever have to go through. you know when bad things happen it can either make or break you . and
the effects from those situations has made a huge impact on my family especially my kids.

So  when William,  my sweet William did what he did it was so amazing and so sad for me at the same time. he has the hugest heart and is always thinking about other people and how he can help. William and his siblings haven't had the easiest upbringing there's been a few rough patches that I'm not proud of and here we are again going through another one. when I posted that on fb it was literally for my family to see and so when thr radio statio. shows up then the news I was shocked then let alone when it went viral and has made it az far as Germany and ive had a women from afriva that saw it and in China and Japan . its so crazy how fast snd how far his story has went.  so when everybody seen what William did. it was so uplifting to see all the comments that people wrote about William. thousands of people all over the world. my heart was broken and i had lost hope and was so scared honestly on what i was going to do and how i was gunna do it. but then after the car I was feeling a little better then the comments were even more uplifting and then when everyone started donating I was literally stunned and shocked and so over welmed with emotional momebts that went feom laughing to crying to stress to smiling but when I was saw the help our family was recieving I was able to feel some hope and excitement that I havnt felt in years. but  I couldn't and still can't express how much we think you your or loving hearts and generosity to help a family you do not know. you guys don't understand exactly how much youve all have helped our family and we will forever be grateful. you guys changed our lives in More ways than you think. yes you donated but you also helped put smiles on my kids is face that I haven't seen quite some time and gave me some hope back in my life. it is very hard for me as a person and me being a mom to tell you guys the stuff that I have and for my story to be put all over the world because I have struggled and continue to struggle with certain things. and i am ashamed of my self because my kids should be out playing not going through everything we have. I wasnt able to do the things that needed to and to have my son be the one to help me.....  my thirteen-year-old son... he should have never had to worry about it and I am very sad that he and his siblings have went through what they have. I wish I could go back and change it but I can't I wish I would have made better choices and done things different because if I would have known what the outcomes were going to be, I most definitely would have never made the choices I did and for those things I will always regret them and be angry at myself... But anyway so with everything happening the was it has my family was getting a little happier and everything started looking up and then we got the devastating news about our dog. we are all very sad and not taking the news very well. I know to some people it's just a dog but to us it's our family. to me is like having another child and to my kids he is their brother . Diesel's a big part of our lives and we found out he has cancer and for him to be able to survive he has to have surgery and chemotherapy and so it's really hard for us. Its another horrible part of that rollercoaster that i don't want to ride at all . anyway I'm gunna go for now im tires. But  either way I wanted to just give you a little back ground on myseof and let you all know that I thank you all so much. youve helped our family so much. if ut wasn't for you all i dont know where we would be. So i love you all and thank you so much. God bless

"MOM everyone says what a good boy i am and how great it was for me to help my mom but look at all those people that don't know us and that are doing such a nice thing for me and my family "

So I reply "
