A Fresh Start for Kordell and Garrison

Hi! My name is Nicole Popp and I am the aunt of Kordell and Garrison.

I started this campaign because as of recently these two boys have been put back into the custody of their father. The last week for these boys has been anything but easy. They are safe now and in a much better environment that will allow them to thrive, thank God!
As of right now, their father is working his tail off to make sure these boys are able to have an easy transition/move from their prior home in Ames to their new home in Ida Grove. Along with this change comes court, school, daycare, clothing, food and personal costs that were unforeseen due to the nature of this situation... so here I am. No one wants to put their business out there for the world to see but we are at a place where any help what so ever is going to help make this easier.

Currently, Gary continues to pay his child support which leaves him in a rough spot as he navigates this new normal for his family. Steps have been made to stop this but it doesn't help in the short term aspect of things currently. He has also dropped most of his savings on a lawyer to make sure the boys will never have to be in a bad position again. 

Any help to give these boys a fresh start is so greatly appreciated.
I will update more as things progress for these two.. prayers are always welcome as they have quite the road ahead of them.

Prayers are also welcome for the mother of these two boys, we pray she gets the help she needs..

Thank you
