NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Around the kitchen table with their mom, a couple of New Orleans kids have a story to tell.
Manny and Mia Calderon.
Brother and sister.
And they tell their story with a pair of socks they design one crayon at a time.
WGNO’s Bill Wood says the story is about Manny and Mia’s baby brother Mac.
Mac died from cancer when he was just fifteen months old.
Mac died in September 2020.
Manny says, “he’s in Heaven.”
They call the socks they designed for him, Mac’s Silly Socks.
They entered them in a contest with a cause.
It’s a contest from the heart.
Kids from across the country entered.
From nine children’s hospitals, they all created their Socks with Stories.
In Louisiana, a family walks by faith.
One step at a time.
Taking baby steps.
In their very own socks.
