Help 5 Kids After Mom's Sudden Death

On Memorial Day, Shawnnise Baten, 32, died shortly after giving birth to her fifth child. 4 have been granted emergency custody to their grandmother, Michelle Baten. She has graciously accepted the task to raise the children in a loving and nurturing environment. However, it is no small feat to provide for four children without warning. The Baten family is asking that you give what ever you can to help support! The money will go toward furniture, clothing, food, medical bills & other child related expenses to help the Baton children during this difficult time. Any donation or share is appreciated. Thank you!
Children (L to R) Kayden, Kaylee, Kaysey, and Khalil 

The newest born: Kaylyn
