Bedrooms for the boys

Meet my nephews. Anthony, Kyale and Kaeden were left behind by their mother again last October. I have the pleasure of raising these boys and am trying to give them more of a chance to change their future. They have seen and been through more than most could imagine. Anthony is college bound to break the cycle of what he grew up with. Kyale is back in school and enjoys hanging with friends and wrestling. Kaeden is autistic and finds the simplest things to be grateful for. My two kids and I (also in the picture) have truely been able to make one big happy home with this crew! But I was encouraged by family and friends to ask for help as my goal is to finish my basement (need egress windows for social worker requirements in basement)and build these boys bedrooms! Now that I legally have custody of them, I would like to offer them something they have never had before....their own bedrooms, fully furnished. The majority of their life has been spent sleeping on couches or mattresses on the floor because my sister sold everything we ever gave them. When I got them they came with the clothes on their back....I do not like to ask for help but this is less about me and more about the goal of giving these teenaged boys privacy, real bedrooms and beds to sleep in (yes they currently sleep on couches too because I just don't have the rooms). Eventually, their sister Vivian will be moving in with us too.....but that will take more time...as she has struggled the most with the situations she was raised in...
