Hello everyone 
As some of you already know my name is Ellena. After my mothers passing I took over her Facebook so that her family and friends could keep in touch with us. It was really mom and Dads Facebook. He was on it all the time :) Those that knew him now he loved to talk. Well I I'm posting a message today asking for help. We were raised to hold our heads up not our hands out so asking is hard. As you all know mom and daddy died only 2 months apart. They left me alone. My sister Jessica and her husband have welcomed me into their family as if I have always lived with them. Shes a great mom of three kids of her own. My brother in law is a fantastic father. I love living with them and really want to continue. She lives close to mom and dads home and I would be able to graduate from the same high school. But in order for me to stay she must obtain guardianship. We have found lawyer who has given us a break and is only requiring 3000.00.   I need to be with my sister. I only have one. She's my best friend and my new "mom". She knows my disease well (Lupus) and knows how to care for me. I would like to have her insurance as well. But first she must have guardianship. My Lupus requires many medications and office visits. I just recently returned home from a week long stay at Texas Childrens. I had another flare and required a lot of work up MRI, CT, bloodwork and a spinal tap (I hate those!) I have government insurance now and would like better. I will require weekly infusions once again.  I really dislike asking for help but any donation will help. A dollar will get us closer to our goal of being a "family" again and me being a " normal teen" Any little bit helps. The sooner we file for guardianship the sooner I get the peace of knowing I have a permanent home and insurance. I get to be a big sister to my nieces and nephew. I miss my mom and dad so much. I know they want me to be with Jessica.  Thank you!
