Okay so here it goes. My sister was depressed and tragically passed
away on June 26th of this year. She left behind 4 beautiful kids
ages 19, 17, 12 and 7. The older 2 kids are now left with no
parents at all, the younger two still have their dad, but they live
with me. My other sister and I are now left to look after them,
money is tight. I have 3 kids of my own and my sister has 5. We are
doing the best that we can under the circumstances. I am getting a
little worried with christmas right around the corner. This will be
the 1st xmas without my sister and without their mom. These kids
have been through so much in the past 3 months, I just want to put
a smile on their face. I know nobody or anything can bring their
mom back but I just want them to have a nice christmas. They all
miss their mom so much.
The kids are all separated now, not living with each other as they
always have. My other sister already has 5 kids and is trying to
refinish her basement so my 17 year old nephew can have his own
space and feel like he has his own room and is at home. But we do
not have the money to do this at this time.
I know this one is a long shot, But my 19 year niece who is know
left with no parents just started 2 months ago her 2nd year of
college. I am so proud of her for returning to college after the
tragic loss of her mother this summer. Our whole family paid for
the 1st semester this year and books but I know they're is next
semester and next year and many other college fees that are ahead
of us in the future.
My nieces and nephew have been through so much. They already worry
about so much and I just want to make these worries go away for
awhile. I want them to try to have the best year possible.
