A place for her
Organized by: Carizma Johnston
This fundraiser is for my mom and dad. I am a senior in high school, and will be leaving for college soon. They have successfully raised four children between them. My mom quit her job as a paralegal to be able to be at home with my mentally disabled sister who recently graduated. She is twenty-one. She bathes her and takes care of all her hygienic needs. My sister still wakes up three or four times at night. It takes lot's out of my mom, but you will never hear her complain. My mom also helps to take care of my step-fathers twenty-six year old son who has down syndrome. They are both great parents, and my sister and brother are blessed to have them. They are their friends, nurses, entertainment. You name it! They sacrifice so much of their life. They will not have a retirement like others, as my siblings will always need care. My parents were given the opportunity to purchase the home we are living in. I know they love it here. I hear them say how well equipped the house is for them. However, they don't have the money. I know it breaks their heart to have to leave here. They are holding on until I graduate. Please help me to make their dreams come true. I wish I could do something myself. I promise to pay it forward! Thank you for your time.
