While many of us are fortunate enough to have a strong family support structure, some of us are less fortunate. I wish I could help each and every one of them. Today, however, I have one family in mind. The family consists of two young transplants from Alaska seeking better fortune in Indiana for themselves and their 5 young children. Currently they are calling a small, less then luxurious hotel home. One small room with 5 cooped up children. Father works all the hours offered to him at the job he was fortunate enough to transfer from. Mother does her best to keep the children fed and active. Mother would love to have a job to go to however it would cost more than she would make a week to pay for child care. This couple never asks for much more help than for someone to watch the children once in a while so they can have alone time. I see them struggling, but they are too proud to ask for much more. I see so much love in Mothers eyes when she interacts with her children one of which is an autistic young man, who is to put it mildly a cleaver little spitfire! The other two boys are perky, smart and a spitting image of their father. The eldest girl, Mothers mini me. The youngest….oh the youngest, such an intensely curious and bright child!

What I would like to accomplish is to raise enough money for them to pay a deposit and first month’s rent on a rental house or Apartment. I would like for them to be able to retrieve their valuables from the pawn shop. In closing I would like them to be able to give their children not only the security of a home to call their own, the comfort and certainty that there will be something there to come home from school to, but to also have a wonderful Christmas.

I’ve seen this community time and time again come together and do great things. My hope is that if you cannot help monetarily you can send prayers and good vibes to this family. Happy Christmahanakwanzika!
