By AP Staff WriterKaren, 30, is the mother of a 4-year-old son.
The family has been together for 20 years.
They moved into the house in 2010.
Her son is a soccer player at St. John’s University.
He wants to be a professional player.
She said she is not going to give up on him.
She is going to try and make the best of it.
Karen has a $10,000 scholarship and will be able to afford a $300 gift basket.
She wants to make sure her son is happy, and she wants him to know that he is appreciated for what he has done.
“My son, I want to do what I can to make him proud,” Karen said.
Katherine’s mom, Susan, says she is doing her best to make her daughter’s wishes come true.
“I want him to have a wonderful Christmas and a great Christmas season.
I want him and his family to have the best possible Christmas,” Susan said.
“I’m going to do my best to help him.”
She said they are trying to make the most of their family’s situation, but she’s worried about what is coming next.
“You know, we’re not going anywhere.
We’re going to stay together,” Susan told KGTV.
“But we have to be vigilant about making sure our son is well-treated.”
Karen said she doesn’t plan to stop giving until her son receives the gift.
