Abandoned Two Year Old Triplets

(Update -  I have increased the goal due to all of your generosity. She is now paying $75 a day for childcare so I would like to cover the cost of that for a couple of weeks! )

(Update - I have removed the picture of the triplets to comply with HIPPA privacy laws)

On Thursday night January 11, at 11:30 p.m. a set of two year old triplets were abandoned, without warning, on my friend's doorstep (she is a relative). They came only with the sleeper and deipaer they were wearing. My friend is a single full-time working mother with two kids of her own living with her so she already has her hands quite full! In addition to all of this, my friend has undergone multiple surgeries this year taking a toll on her physical health as well as her ability to work and provide for her children. 

She literally had to go out on Friday and lease a mini-van in order to have enough room to haul all of the children now in her custody. She is trying to do her best by these children and provide a warm, loving home for them until a more permanent solution can be found but at this point we do not know how long that will be because it is proving difficult to find someone to take in all three children and she is trying her hardest not to split them up. They have gone through enough already.

The children were also born prematurely at 26 weeks so they have doctors appointments and need medication and booster shots, etc, all of which my friend will need to now provide.

At the request of many who are looking for ways to support her I am starting this Go Fund Me campaign to help her cover some of these unexpected costs - diapers, food, van lease, babysitters, medications and doctors visits, etc.

Thank you for your consideration!
