Hey! My name is Regina, and I started this YouCaring page for my sister. She is absolutely the most amazing, selfless person I've known. She takes things on head first, always rising to the occasion and coming through for the people who need her most. In the last few years she has grown in ways I can't even put in to words. She, along with her business partner, successfully launched a start up delivery business in their community - the Roaring Fork Valley. Starting a business is a rough (although often fun) road to ride, and she's done so without giving up.
As if that isn't enough, she is single handedly raising her son, my nephew, to be a respectful, respectable young man. He holds door, greets people brightly, is smart as a whip, says please and thank you, and enjoys talking about all of the things that interest little boys!
Wait, there is more. This supermom extraordinaire also felt called to care for kids in the foster care system. This step of faith looked like a leap to her for a while as she processed how to fit fostering in to her life - but she doesn't balk at a leap for long, she makes a plan and takes the jump, which is exactly what she did with this, too. With such a great need in her community, she was picked for kids quite quickly once she completed all of the requirements.
I don't know about you, but I believe we have a real enemy, that God has a real enemy, and that when someone hears God's call on their life, and responds, the enemy moves against them. As is the case with my sweet sister. She started to do the very work God called her to (caring for orphans) and there have been hiccups. The most noteworthy is with her vehicle situation. The motor in her Prius gave up - but she owes a lot on the vehicle still. A temporary fix was put in place - an older Blazer that sucks fuel down, but it doesn't have what it takes to withstand 300+ miles a day to keep up with her job. Plus the whole fuel mileage thing puts a real cramp on things.
This is where you and I come in. See, I want to be able to help. In fact, I wish I could buy the motor ($6000) for the Prius and pay the dang thing off for her (roughly $10000), but I can't. But I will donate what I can, and I am hoping you will too. If you can't donate, please say a prayer for her, and share this page and let's rally around a young woman who is making a huge impact on her community and make a huge impact in her life!!
