This Five Year-Old Michigan Girl Will Bring You To Tears
A five year-old girl from Ishpeming, Michigan just restored my faith in humanity. This is a must read!
Sunshine Oelfke is an adorable little girl with a huge heart. She recently did something that absolutely floored her grandmother and has made National News. This all starts with a little piggy bank. Important note: nobody touches the piggy bank. Then Sunshine's grandmother Jackie notices the little girl emptying and carefully counting all of the change from the piggy bank one day. According to CBSNews.com Jackie asked her granddaughter what she was doing,
"I'm going to take it for milk money. I'm taking it for my friend Layla," she explained. "She doesn't get milk — her mom doesn't have milk money and I do."
Oelfke's heart sank and melted at the same time.
The 5-year-old was raised in a non-traditional household, Oelfke explained. Her mom is a drug addict and has been in and out of prison.
"She's going to have enough issues growing up with this," Oelfke said. "I've never told her she can't do something, and I didn't want to start now."
Overcome with emotion the grandmother posted this on facebook.
