A fresh start for Ethan

When Ethan came out to us as trans, we embraced him with open arms. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of resources for trans kids where we live, and the majority of the local community is not interested in providing any kind of support. That’s why we decided it is time for a fresh start somewhere else!

Our goal is to get Ethan to a more supportive community that is closer to the resources he needs. But in order to do this, we will need to pay for moving expenses and a deposit on our new home. And with all the driving we’ll be doing to and from various doctors, we will also have to fix up our 2001 Ford Explorer (which has all of the maintenance issues that come with an old vehicle).

There are plenty of other expenses to cover, but these are the upfront costs that currently stand in the way of a better life for Ethan. We know our goal is ambitious, so any help that you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading and for all of your support!
