9-year-old Christian suffers from
Spina Bifida and has also lost the sight in one eye. Although
he could easily give up and spend his life housebound in a wheelchair
Christian won't let that happen. Christian says if he had good
legs he would want to hunt whatever he could.
Benefit4Kids sent Christian hunting with Bluff Creek Ranch just
north of Austin TX. Although they have about 8 different exotic
animals he could hunt for he likes the picture of the 4-horned
ram and that is what he went after!
A huge thank you goes out to Bluff Creek Ranch for helping Benefit4Kids
with this young mans Wish. You can check out their operation at
Christian arrived at the ranch with anticipation and excitement
building as the first day of hunting came slowly for this young
man. Wednesday morning, Christian wasn't even out hunting but
a few hours and saw a real nice hog he wanted to take. Benefit4Kids
threw in the hog as a bonus for Christian, and he jumped at the
opportunity. Thanks to board member, Jim Reifert, Christian was
not only able to surprise everyone and hold the gun by himself,
but with the aid of Jim's Laser sight he sent down for Christian
to use, Christian was able to pull the trigger HIMSELF and harvest
his first wild boar with only 1 shot!!!! Before this hunt took
place, we were told someone would have to help Christian hold
the gun, and probably pull the trigger for him.
Bluff Creek sprung a surprise on everyone and set up a special
pig roast in Christians honor with his first hog! The smile on
this kids face was from ear to ear and while talking to his grandmother
on the phone, she hardly understood a word he said because he
was talking a mile a minute from excitement!!
Later that week, Christian was once again able to pull off something
nobody thought he could do once again, and that was live his dream
of shooting a 4 horned ram.... ALL BY HIMSELF!!!!!! I don't have
all the details on this story, but do know enough to put a huge
smile on my face and warm feeling inside my heart knowing another
less fortunate child was able to live their dream because of people
like you who are the ones that gives Benefit4Kids the ability
to make dreams like this come true!
A huge Thank You goes out to Bluff Creek Ranch who donated this
hunt for Christian, and our Nationwide States Director Jason Miller
for his help and information in helping Christian live his dream!
