Hello Mr. Cuellar,
I have known you for about two months now and not a day goes by that I do not think about how you are going to change my life. Maybe it will be that your generosity and honesty will restore my trust in the human spirit? You see, recently, you agreed to help me purchase a diamond without being “taken” by some dishonest jewelers I had the misfortune of meeting. During my waiting for my ring, I log onto your web site every day to see what new info I can absorb about diamonds. I may be helpful to someone else in need some day.
During my visits, I started reading about your adopt-a-diamond program. Well, Fred, if I may call you that, my mother is very worthy of something very selfish. You see, my mother has been unfortunate enough to marry someone who doesn’t deserve her. Don’t get me wrong, my father raised us with a roof over our heads and meals on the table. However, he does not believe in buying new furniture, or buying a house, or going on family vacations. My mother will never enjoy being in a real family like I will.
It is too late. My sisters and I have given her many gifts over the years for birthdays, Christmas, and Mother’s Day, but it is not the same as receiving a gift from your husband. I know that now, since I am married.
My mother does not own anything, not even a home. She and my father are living on pensions. They will not end up needing from anyone but their children because we will provide for them no matter what. But, my mother deserves something very selfish on her finger. She cannot even dream about what a diamond’s glitter may look like. Please, give her something for her and only her. Give her the hope you gave me. Thanks, Fred.
