Traditional Grandparents are raising 8 grandchildren ranging in ages from 8 months to 5 years old. What little they have to survive on is stretched way thin. They have no car and no income except for what they can earn from selling hand made arts and crafts. And now the supplies to make their arts and crafts are nearly depleted. Having a sponsor for even one family member would be a great blessing and answered prayer. 140-02-0317-01

This is a sponsorship request for a single mother living with her son who is paraplegic.
Her son is now 31 years old and has had to have extensive rehabilitation to enable him to dress and transfer himself and cope with everyday living.
He's been in his wheelchair for 10 years and has very limited mobility. Both mother and son have had to work very hard to get where they are today.
They could really use the help of a sponsor for basic needs since they have a very limited income
Please help this mother and her son to have an easier life. 149-58-0317-01
