Today, I swallow my pride and ask all of the wonderful people out there for help. My amazing 6 year old daughter has found what could potentially be her career in life. She has been a natural gymnast since she was in the womb (always kicking and flipping), but has only just started taking classes. She taught herself everything she could over the last couple of years with the help of YouTube. After only her second gymnastics class, her coach saw how talented she was already and asked to have her moved up to a more advanced class. I’ll never forget the look on my beautiful baby’s face when I told her that her talents have been recognized. Considering that she taught herself everything she knows, you can’t believe how surprised she was. Of course, I knew that this was going to happen because I knew how good she was before she even stepped foot inside of a gym. I can’t even begin to explain how proud I feel when I see my baby girl making herself proud. Gymnastics is something she loves, and has loved since before she really even knew what it was. Then comes the hard part, money. I wish there was a way for me to pay for this on my own but it’s just not possible right now. The job I have is stable, however, the hours I’m given are barely enough for me to get my bills paid. I can’t take her out of this class though. I just can’t. Knowing Sophie, she wouldn’t be upset or angry at me because she understands that I do whatever I can to make her happy. She would say “it’s okay mama, I know you would if you could” and that breaks my heart. She needs this, so so badly. So I ask you, all of you, to please invest in this wonderful child’s future. Not for me, but for her. Any little bit will help tremendously. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, and if you can’t help I completely understand. For those that do, a simple “thank you” doesn’t even cover how grateful I am.
