Riley Wants To Give His Nana Cuddles

Help these beautiful kids and mom get to the UK to meet family for the first time! Leighanne Robinson should be a Saint! She’s been a single mother of 3. The twins are age 14 (Gracie and Noah) and the youngest is age 11 (Riley). Noah has Asperger’s and Riley has sensory processing disorder, ADHD and dysphagia. Leigh is from the UK and came to the states in mid-90’s to work at a special needs camp, where she met her children's father. With their father no longer able to parent, Leigh became a fighter. She renovated her entire home, mainly by herself, doing DIY projects. She has managed to attend nursing school and is now a full-fledged nurse. With a very busy life, Leigh and the kids still find time to make and pack gifts for soldiers, homeless and other people in need!! She involves the children in community projects and is raising them with the core values and ethics unmatched by most American children of today.Leigh obtained her US citizenship in March of 2017. After being restricted from travel to her home country for 15 years because of custody or citizen issues, she is FINALLY allowed to go visit family in the UK! The children will get to meet their maternal grandparents and family for the first time! Flights are expensive for a single parent and although Leigh is working as hard as she can, bills come first. The children’s needs are met without any extra for savings or travel. The goal is to send Leigh and her kids to the UK during the summer of 2018 to see the family and teach the children the history of their heritage. Video and voice calling can not substitute nana's warm cuddles!!! Please help us help Leigh!
