HaleighFor those of you that either never heard of or may need their memories freshened, HaLeigh Cummings is the 5 year old little girl from Florida that disappeared in February 2009. She was last seen sleeping on her pallet on the floor in her Dad’s bedroom while under the care of her then 17 year old babysitter, Misty Croslin. You can read more about HaLeigh’s story here to catch up if you would like to. HaLeigh is still missing. No one seems to know what happened to her. There are lots of theories about what happened, but either way, no one can prove their theory so no one knows for sure. The family needs to find the answers though, so they can go on with their lives.

HaLeigh’s birthday is coming up on August 17 and her family, as they always do, will try to celebrate her life the best way they can. This will be HaLeigh’s 10th birthday and her family can think of nothing better for her birthday than for her to come home. They miss her so much. This year due to personal hardships the family might just decide to do this privately. If they decide to hold a Vigil I will post the information on here for everyone to see.

Every year on HaLeigh’s birthday, I sit at home during a quiet moment and light a candle in her memory and I say a prayer for her. I’d like to ask all of you to please do the same this year. Let’s show HaLeigh she has not been forgotten. This is the little girl that we have all come to love.

Donations can be school supplies, underwear for little boys and girls, or cash the school will use to buy the needed supplies not in HaLeigh’s Closet.

Checks are to be made out to the school with HaLeigh’s name, HaLeigh Cummings or HaLeigh’s Closet, in the memo section. The school has a special account set up for donations for HaLeigh’s Closet but if there is not a memo or note that specifies it is for HaLeigh the money will go directly into the school’s account so it is important that it is noted some where that the donation is for HaLeigh’s’ s Closet.

All donations are greatly appreciated by HaLeigh’s family and all the families who are helped by your donations. Thank you all who have given or plan to give. May God bless you for your generosity in HaLeigh’s name.

Donations can be sent here:

Browning-Pearce Elementary School
100 Bear Blvd, San Mateo, FL 32187 |
(386) 329-0557

Any donation big or small will be appreciated. If you live in the area, you are welcomed to just drop off the donations at the school during regular school hours, just be sure to say it is to go to HaLeigh’s Closet.

This family has been through hell and back, yet their faith in God keeps them going. Please join me in my prayers for all of them. I pray God will bring them peace once again by bringing HaLeigh home again. God bless you all that join me in this prayer. God bless you HaLeigh, where ever you are. I hope one day soon you will find your way home.
