20 years ago today I lost my amazing mother. My mother meant the world to me, she was truly an Angel that had a heart of gold. A few years ago I posted this story on how the TLC became what it is today. In memory of my mother I would like to share it with you again, it’s because of her that hundreds of children are cared for every year by the TLC Foundation, she was the best teacher in the entire world!!! A lot of people ask me how the TLC Foundation started and why. It was my mother’s teachings as a young boy that inspired me to help others. There are many examples that I can give but there is one that made me realize how wonderful a person my mother really was…a true angel. We grew up in a world of poverty, at many times needing the assistance of organizations to just put food on the table. When I was 8 or 9 years old my mother asked me to take a walk with her to visit an elderly lady that lived a few blocks from our house. When we arrived my mother handed the lady a gift and when the lady opened it she was very thankful, tears ran down her face . I was very upset with my mother for giving this lady this gift because I had realized that the gift she gave away was a birthday present that she received a few weeks earlier from a family friend. I could not understand why she would give things away when we were also the ones in need. I questioned her on this and she looked at me with a smile on her face and said don’t worry about why I gave my present away I did what I had to do. It did not take me long to figure that my mom was happy when she could help others and just because you don’t have the resources there are other ways to give. She gave her birthday present to help someone and to her that was more important than keeping the gift....

My friend Ceazon dropped by Santa’s House to say hello and have lunch with me at Joe Kools but his real reason to see me was to give me a gift. My heart was filled with joy when I opened the gift. Ceazon and his mother Karen made me this beautiful quilt and personalized it. I was filled with emotions when I received this amazing gift. The fact that Ceazon thought of me and went out of his way just warms my heart. All the children I meet are truly amazing, they are all my heroes and fill my heart with...
