Taylor and Mike

Featured Video Play Icon

Mike and his 6-year-old daughter Taylor live in a homeless shelter in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mike was hurt at work and without any income, they lost everything.

I work helping homeless families in Los Angeles and it’s extremely hard to find services for single dads. Most shelters are set up for single females or two-parent families. When I was introduced to Mike and Taylor I was so very glad to see they were being helped.

Taylor is very mature for being six-years-old. Before I took the camera out she was talking nonstop, even giving us all instructions on the interview. Once the camera started she became quiet except when I asked her for her three wishes.

Taylor only had one wish and that wish is still messing me up.

Very special thanks to Tulsa Salvation Army
