https://www.krqe.com/news/albuquerque-metro/after-loss-of-both-parents-teenager-becomes-caretaker-for-her-autistic-brother/ Hello friends. I love you all so much and I never ask for anything, but these kiddos need you. Ryan and my niece and nephew need your help. Mackenzie is 18 and in her senior year of high school and has been a lifelong caretaker and advocate of her brother (age 15). Mackenzie is waiting on scholarships for college in New Mexico and Michael is non-verbal and autistic. She is hoping to become his primary caregiver, but will need help with housing and care for Michael. Paula, their grandmother, Ryan and Sara's mom, has done, and will continue to do, everything in her power to help these babes. Paula is also helping her husband that has inoperable cancer through his time now. Mackenzie and Michael have gone through every hell you can possibly imagine. They lost their mother in 2015. Sara was a kind, hilarious, and generous person. She was an amazing artist, hilarious prankster with her brothers, had THE most amazing sense of humor, was making her life right, and she loved her children more than anything. She was missing for many months, until she was discovered to have been murdered. She will always be in every heart that she ever touched. Sara was one of those people that you always wished that you could have met. Yesterday, Mackenzie found her father passed away in their home. Brian was a loving father and has spent the last few years trying to care for everyone. He loved music and his kiddos. There will be an autopsy, but it seems that their father passed away from a major heart attack. He will be forever missed. We need your help now for Mackenzie and Michael. Please donate any dollars that you have. These kids need all the support we can give them. Thank you so much. We need for these kids to be okay. We need for them to know that everyone loves them. ❤
