Love can strike anywhere and, in all forms, however, love shown through generosity and giving can fill more than just someone’s heart with an emotional need. This past Christmas, Alex and Reagan Bregman, and Jason and Tish Columbus, showered a single mom of four with plentiful gifts that helped her get back on her feet. 

Caroline Bordelon is mother to Wezi, age 18, a Junior at Xiamen University in Malaysia, 10-year-old Caleb who is on the autism spectrum and considered nonverbal, and siblings Coniah, age 9, and Shiloh, age 8. She has her hands full, and with challenges of the pandemic and a complicated divorce, Bordelon needed an angel to step in and provide her with support. 

With coordination from Hope For Three and additional donations from Gulf Coast Auto Sales, Gallery Furniture and Summer Gainey, PhD., Bordelon was surprised with a car, including insurance for six months, a furnished apartment with rent paid for one-year and summer therapy services for her child with autism.

“Just when you feel like life is over and God has given up on you, a miracle comes around,” said Bordelon in the reaction to receiving the vehicle and gifts. Bregman noticed her predicament when Bordelon showed up to collect donated Christmas gifts in an Uber. His heart couldn’t let this mother go without her own special gift. 

Bregman’s foundation, The Bregman Cares Charity is involved in several local causes to help those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as autism awareness. Bregman also supports Hope For Three, a Fort Bend County autism-focused nonprofit that provides advocacy and financial assistance to county residents, which is how he connected with Bordelon.

If you’re looking for a unique way to express your love and gratitude, consider helping a family who faces daily challenges dealing with the complications that come with having a family member on the autism spectrum. Learn more about Hope For Three at www.hopeforthree.org
