Braces for the Ladies

This year Skye and I grew our family rather unexpectedly. We have become the guardians to our three nieces, Rowan (13), Clementine (11), and Lilou (4).  While it has been hectic and overwhelming, it has honestly been one of the most joyful years of our lives. We are beyond grateful to have been in a position to welcome these lovely ladies into our home, and we couldn't have done it without a lot of help from many of our friends and family. 

Obviously, this isn't exactly how we planned to grow our family right now. We figured that when we had children that the cost would increase slowly, and in concert with our income. Unfortunately, we skipped a few steps! It is for this reason that we come to all of you for some financial help. 

Both Rowan and Clementine have significant orthodontic challenges. Unfortunately, they are the kind that require attention, not the aesthetic kind. Their orthodontist is wonderful, they are reasonably priced, and they have given us some excellent discounts. However, braces are still far beyond our current monthly budget, even with a long payment schedule. We are grateful for any donation, no matter how small. Even $5 is $5 that we didn't have before that can go towards a payment. We had to begin the process already due to the developmental stages the girls are in, so we have about two more months before I would need to start paying for full braces. 

If you would like to donate but would prefer to do so directly, you are more than welcome to do so.
