Lost chil­dren get help­ing hand

South Waikato News - - OPINION - S Smith Toko­roa

No words can de­scribe my grate­ful­ness to a woman here in Toko­roa, who, when my kids went miss­ing from my drive­way, saw them and re­alised that they were lost. I am thank­ful that you took the ini­tia­tive to do right by my ba­bies who needed a guide to find their way home. With so many things go­ing wrong within our com­mu­nity,this proves to me that there are things that are go­ing right. It is peo­ple like you that al­low me to still be in love with Toko­roa and the peo­ple. To the man on his bike who stopped when I asked for help, to him, his kids and wife, thank you for giv­ing your time to help me. I really ap­pre­ci­ate what you did. To the man who came out on what seems like his work truck to see if they were found when I needed help, Thank you too. To my sis­ter who drove around as well, kia ora to you too. And lastly to the Toko­roa po­lice, who brought my ba­bies home to me, thank you all so much. So many things could’ve gone wrong for me and my ba­bies that day but be­cause of what I be­lieve is a strong sense of com­mu­nity around us I had my ba­bies home safe and sound within the hour. Michelle Wil­liams and ev­ery­one else who helped us, from the bot­tom of my heart. My whanau and I thank you.
