The Engleman Family

Treka Engleman became a foster mom 3 years ago where she got her 1st child which was a 5 day old baby, lil Eli. Then later, pshe took in Alexis 1 of 2 sisters and she was determined to get Mercedes into her home as well. She has had other children come live with her that were able to go back and be with family.. She would like to continue to help other children that are in need.

Treka is now a single mom of 3 beautiful children that she adopted on Friday November 1, 2019. Here is her story: https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lovewhatmatters.com%2Foh-are-you-babysitting-theyre-mine-im-a-30-year-old-single-black-woman-with-3-white-children-love-has-no-color-in-my-home-woman-adopts-1-boy-2-siblings-from-foster-care-love-is%2F&h=AT13VnKrix1izDwJYt3p5cX1h2SE7qmFX-_pemv5oY3NUEc0ISGY4Gd0P62S4Xpi-ce2imRNj3j0liLSLGmn3mjpTPCBMBdIxKQukOxFqZO_cxmn3CsYlLuD3W6WoRTPl0nMWETO-R_vDDRRxk3h8-q_TKClq7g&s=1 44091958_157690371692728_r.jpeg  She now has Elijah 3 years old, Alexis 13 years old, and Mercedes 16 year old. These children are blessed to be able to call Treka mom. Treka is in need of a bigger and better running vehicle.A minivan would be perfect to transport her kids are to school and daycare. They also are involved in different sport activities that she would have to get them to and from. She is a hardworking woman who dedicates her life to her children. She wants to give them the life that they deserve. She is currently working on a bigger house for her children because they have never had their own rooms and they expressed to her that they would love that experience that.

In a year Mercedes will be a senior in high school and she plans to go to college. She wants to make sure her mom Treka and her siblings will be financially stable and comfortable while she is away at college.

If you would like to help and support this family anything would be greatly appreciated. She is the true definition of what it means to be self less...
