As a new mom, she is constantly adjusting to the financial and emotional needs of three sons with special needs. She works full time which leaves very little time for herself. She works diligently to provide for her family, but basic needs (housing, education and extracurricular outings) can quickly exhaust her earnings. For the most part, the boys are a joy to raise; however, their traumatic past does show itself in their daily functioning. Each child has loads of personality.Mom makes certain her sons spend a great deal of time on homework and has taught them to answer "yes, ma'am" and "yes, sir" to all adults. The brothers thoroughly enjoy playing together and would love toys to play with at Christmas. This deserving family would be most appreciative of any help they receive.
