Social workers are one of those individuals in our society that do their best to make this world a happy place to live in but unfortunately they don’t always receive the appreciation they deserve.
Social workers voluntarily and selflessly devote their time to help others who are in need like older patients, abandoned kids, disabled people, but it is rare that you see media or other organization appreciation them for their great work.
But this 8- years old kid has written them a letter thanking them for saving her life and it is so touchy that it will definitely bring tears to your eyes. Have some tissues with you before you read her story.
Marie met social workers at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta when she was just 8 months old and weighing 14 pounds.
When doctors first did the medical checkup, she was with 14 fractures and a damaged spinal cord and unfortunately, these injuries left her paraplegic. After an initial investigation, police found out that she was abused by her parents and they were arrested within a few days.
Maries was later on adopted by Michelle Surprenant, who was one of the social workers.
Now after 8 years, she is living the life of her dreams – she paints, draws, play games and on vacations visits Disney Land too. Marie’s adoptive mother said, “Her future looks bright, and we know very well that none of this success would have been possible without the amazing team of social workers, detectives and medical staff in Atlanta. Thank you for being the stepping stone that this little, baby girl needed.”
Maries has been through a very tough phase of her life. Because of the injuries she had received at such a young age, she was in pain for most of her time. Even doctors thought that she might not survive for a long time but here we have her, inspiring other kids too. To Marie, it was all because of social workers who gave her a new life.
Now Marie is a grown child who loves reading and writing. And now she is finally capable to thank all the social workers who have helped her to survive and who are there in other parts of the world, helping others too. Here is a heart-warming letter that she wrote for them:
