Helping My Nephews

As many of you may have noticed I have new additions in my daily life; my three wonderful nephews have joined my ranks!  They are Mason 11, William Grayson 4 and Braydon 2.  I have stepped into the full-time position as their guardian or Auntie Dede to them.  The nurturing portion of my new role such as: love, patience, persistence, energy, determination, friends, family and community I am handling like a rock star! (As you might have expected  ) When it comes to the tangible things that can only be handled with money I’m in a bit of a bind.

I have applied for government assistance, I have only been approved for daycare assistance. Unfortunately, like everything with the government… it doesn’t happen overnight. Currently I am paying for the children out of pocket on a salary meant for myself and possibly 2 but definitely not 3 growing boys.  I have many kind friends and family that have sent grocery cards, clothes and even bedroom supplies and I am very grateful. I know there are situations worse than mine which makes it hard for me to ask for the help.  However, I have confided in friends and family about this and everyone supports me making this page.  

In order to do extra activities with the boys, as well as provide necessities I need some help.  These vibrant growing boys have their own things in mind and all though they are extracurricular things I still feel very strongly that growing children need activities, music and art to become well rounded individuals.  I would love to be able to put them in at least one extra activity. Mason wants to go to baseball camp and gymnastics is a must with his gymnast type abilities he already has. Will Gray, which is what I call William, has dreams of being an astronaut and a boxer but for now I think we’ll stick with football!  Brayden is so smart he's going to be great at just about anything. He has been approved for medical assistance in speech/language so once we get him squared away with words, sports are in the horizon. 

I know I can make an impact and improve their lives and I am coming to find out how much the boys are impacting, improving and changing my life!! If I make $5 from this go fund me page or $500 it will go to good use and be appreciated.  If you live in my area of Florida and would rather help in other ways contact me through my messenger.  Thanks for reading this, it means a great deal!
