Desperate Mom Pleads For Replacement Of Autistic Daughter’s Favorite Shirt

Desperate Mom Pleads For Replacement Of Autistic Daughter’s Favorite Shirt

Facebook Tweet

Megható történet egy kislányról, akinek a Facebook segítségével kerestek ugyanolyan pólót a régi, elhasználódott helyett. Sokan segítettek :-).

A little girl in Utah named Cami has one shirt that she prizes above all others. Cami has autism, and the pink, patterned t-shirt brings her comfort and security. She likes to wear it when she comes home from school. But Cami’s mom, Deborah, noticed Cami’s precious shirt was looking worn. Deborah scoured the internet and looked at different stores, but she couldn’t find another like it. So, she thought she’d try Facebook, asking if anyone knew where she could find another shirt for Cami. She had no idea that her simple question would go viral.

“Okay friends and family, I need your help!” wrote Deborah in her status, “As most of you know, my daughter Cami has autism. For the past 4-5 years, she has been fixated on THIS shirt. She got her first one in kindergarten 5 years ago, and we have found 4 more since then, mostly on eBay. Her current one is almost unwearable, and eBay has gone dry… This is where you come in. We need another “pink flower shirt”, so will you please share this post or even just the photo? We will pay for the shirt and the shipping if someone would be kind enough to sell it to us. It has to be this exact shirt! We’ve tried similar shirts, and they don’t cut it with Cami! :) Thank you so much!!”

Within a few days, Deborah’s status went viral. It was shared almost 5,000 times, and– when a page called Love What Matters reposted it– it got an additional 13,000 shares! Shirts started pouring in from around the world. People were commenting with different ideas for Deborah, ways they wanted to help, and well wishes for Cami.

Deborah posted this message:

“I’m Cami’s mom, and I am so grateful for the kindness that my daughter has been shown! I made this post a week ago in the hopes of finding a few shirts for backup. Cami adores this shirt, and it brings her a lot of comfort and security, which is sometimes hard for her to come by in her chaotic little world. She doesn’t wear it all the time, but likes to put it on after school, and she wears it to bed as a pajama shirt. At last count, we are at 78 shirts, and I’ve had many offers to make her teddy bears, pillows, blankets, and other keepsakes out of the extras. These are all total strangers. People are inherently good and kind, and I’m glad I’ve been able to be a recipient of that kindness. May God bless you all!”
