A Merry Christmas for Our Babies

Written by Armed Services YMCA Alaska


Our Story

My wife and I are high-school sweethearts with a beautiful 3 year old daughter and 7 month old son to complete our family. With my wife being in full time school and a stay at home mom, expenses are tighter this Christmas. We have been lucky enough to be chosen for arctic wishes before when it was just our daughter and us, and we are grateful for another opportunity this year to have our wishes granted.

Our Family’s Wish

Wish #1
Anything for the kids. Our daughter is in size 3T and loves Bluey, Disney Princesses, and sensory play. Our son is 7 months and in 6-12month clothes, he is crawling and standing himself up and loves any sensory toys or toys he can chew on as his new teeth come in.

Wish #2
Indoor winter activities. Any family games or activities that our daughter can play with to help get through the winter.

Wish #3
Stuffed animals. Our son and daughter both love stuffed animals. Our daughter likes the brand Ty animals with the big heads (not the beanie babies) and our son likes animal lovies to snuggle with.
