Gracious girl, 5, and boy, 3, will be cheered
The single mother, her 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old autistic son live in a one-bedroom apartment. She takes pride in providing for her family, she wrote, but it’s hard to meet expenses on a limited income. “I can’t always afford to buy the clothes and books she may need, but my daughter, God love her, she just says ‘It’s OK, Mom, we can get it next time,’ and is always very gracious,” the girl’s mother wrote. With no money for extras, the mother asks Globe Santa for help with gifts.
