Stability for these 3 Kiddos

$3,600 of $3,800 goal

Raised by 38 people in 3 months
We realize there is a ton of people who have great needs.

These three precious children have been through ALOT.  They've been in and out of shelters, lived in a tent, camper, hotel, and have had a life of instability.

Department of Human Services has been involved in their lives from time to time - but they just don't seem to have a solution for these children.

What they need right now, is some assistance in getting stable.  Money for daycare and a deposit for a place to live.

While the county and community may have resources for them, it just takes time to find and get those resources..and in the meantime, the children still need to be in daycare, and a permanent place to live (and food to eat).

The extended family has been helping fund these children's' needs for years..and financially just can't afford to pay for these two immediate needs.

We are asking that those who feel compelled to help make a small donation towards getting these kids stable.  Every little bit makes a difference.  $5, $10, $15, $20....it all adds up.   We need the money as soon as possible to cover daycare, housing, and food for the children.

We thank you in advance for sharing this campaign, for giving if you can, and for keeping these precious children in your prayers.

It truly takes a village.

Much Love - Danita Nixon, and Jane Burkardt

This is Aunt Ellie. While she MIGHT look like Captain Underpants - she REALLY is Superwoman. This young lady, like her mother, has a HUGE heart, and has invested her life in these three kids. Attached is a photo of the kids with their cousins (Ellie's kids). The fact she got them all to sit still in one place is nothing short of a miracle. LOL, for reals. Anywho - an apartment has been secured - so soon we will have gathered everything needed to make it a home. There is alot going on in the background - so we treasure your prayers. Please continue to share the campaign - funds are still needed to cover daycare and other needs that the kids have. On behalf of the Wakefield/Burkhardt and Jones/Nixon family - we thank you from the botom of our hearts for your generousity on behalf of these precious souls. It truly takes a village. Hugs and love!

Thank you everyone who is helping us help these precious kids. Your generosity is heartwarming, and you truly are making a difference in their lives. If you haven't shared this campaign yet - please do. When you share it put a personal note with it asking your network to contribute even a small amount. This will help them understand that you are connected with this campaign.

We appreciate continued prayers for the protection of these children - that the courts will see what is going on, and that THEY will order protection. While we understand that the "system" wants families to stay together - there are times when it isn't what is best for the children. This is one of these cases. Just as a note, their Father Adam is in the picture and working diligently to get these kids stable. He is part of the solution.

Thank you again for supporting these precious babies. YOU are a thrower of starfish. :)

This is what people with crazy BIG hearts look like...Meet Jane and Ellie. Paternal Grand Mother Jane Burkhardt and Aunt Ellie Wakefield to these precious babies. These two have given tirelessly to the support of these children (physically, financially, emotionally) in hopes of creating a future for them. These two (plus an anonymous caretaker) are the ones who are keeping the kids afloat right now. They are responsible for transporting the kids, finding daycare, and getting them to their appointments. It isn't a small job - and they have their own lives to manage as well. Aunt Ellie cared for the children for eight months, two years ago when the courts took the children away for neglect. There are current investigations taking place into alleged abuse and neglect of these children.

I've had a couple of people ask for a little more backstory about this situation. For those who haven't figured it out - these are three of my four grandbabies. Ronan the oldest (who isn't one of these three) was taken away from my daughter years ago due to her lifestyle choices (addiction, risky behavior, etc). My daughter has not allowed me to have a relationship with these three, so it is with great joy, that I am getting to know them.

So, we are working to support these kiddos in getting stable here in Colorado. As I have said, we are using a majority of the money for daycare and getting an apartment for them. From there, eventually, social services will kick in and hopefully child support at some point. It's just the gap from here to there that we need help with.

Please give today if you can. $20, $10 -- anything helps. And if you know an individual, a church or a non-profit that can help, please forward it to them as well.

It takes a village - and we most certainly can make a difference in the lives of these three children.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Much love,
Danita
Aunt Ellie Wakefield, YaYa Jane Burkardt
