Hi ladies. I just wanted to check in briefly. I have barely been on JM for the past week or so. We have a very close family friend. She is the only babysitter we have used besides Grandmas for our kiddos for 7 years and she is a Godsend and literally like family to us. She is in her early 20's and has two sisters who are teens, one in HS and one in MS. Anyway, Tiffany (the oldest) had to drop college last year because their Mom literally abandoned them and divorced their Dad who had just been diagnosed with prostate cancer. So, Tiffy has been taking care of her sisters and very sick father for 2 years now. They are the most precious girls, always so kind, loving and just full of joy like I have never seen. Even through all of what she has had to deal with, Tiffany still is just so much of a light in our life. Her Dad was so sweet, he used to work 2-3 jobs to support his family and one was at the local Wal-Mart. Every time I was there he would come out and bring my kiddos some kind of "snack" from the Deli and visit with us. They always went to all of the parades with us and carnivals in town. My children love this man and family so much, as do DH and I. Anyway, Elliot (her Dad) just took a major turn for the worse and was just placed on hospice care on Friday. We are not expecting him to make it past next week. My family and I are trying to help out these sweet girls. The Mom is gone and only pops in occasionally to bring the girls groceries or something and they are caring for him and trying to get his will in place so that Tiffany can get power of attorney over the younger girls so that the Mom cannot take them. I cannot imagine going through this at their age and with virtually no family support. We are trying to help take them food and just care for them overall. If you pray, plese pray for this precious family in the sad time. We are trying to just be there and be available anyway we can. I hope you all are doing well and I will be checking in and posting more often soon. Have a great week, ladies.
Sending many prayers their way. It sounds like they are a wonderful family and it is so sad that they must go through such a devastating ordeal. Thank goodness for people like you and your dh. True kindness is such a rarity these days and I gather that is exactly what you are showing these girls. My hat is off to you.
Thank you AlexAiden Mommy for the wonderfully beautiful siggy!!!
What a heavy load Tiffany is bearing. It is wonderful that you and your family are helping her (and her family) out in a time of need. Sometimes when we don't know what to do, all we really need to do is be there.I will keep her and her family in my thoughts.
what a horrible situation for this family to be in. i will be thinking of them and hope everything works out for the best.
thank you bonnie (cavewoman) for my beautiful siggy!
