The Story

Meet Tulla, a single mom raising two kids, a 12 year old daughter and a 4 year old special-needs son (Kylan). At 6 months old, Kylan suffered a traumatic brain injury, also known as Shaken Baby Syndrome, at the hands of a trusted family member who was babysitting him at the time. (The caretaker is now in prison.) The stress on the family by the court trial and Kylan’s continuous needs resulted in the breakdown of the family and, finally, a divorce leaving the children with Tulla to raise alone. This situation is magnified because she lives so far away from her family who would help.  Right now Tulla has no time to work due to the difficulty of finding child care able to meet Kylan‘s needs.  The same is true for her being able to finish her last two semesters of school and lead a normal life. Then, when you add to all of this, not even having enough money to buy diapers, it becomes crushing. Please consider helping Tulla!  Your monetary donations will provide her with means to purchase the special type of stroller required to transport Kylan, as well as provide her with the necessary means to assist with living expenses so that she can complete her schooling to support her family and meet their ever-growing needs.  We truly appreciate your support and prayers!

Thanks to everyone for their prayers and financial support! Tulla has been able to get the stroller she needed to get Kylan where he needs to go. See the photos of him enjoying his new ride.  He was so excited that he sat in it for 45 minute when they made the adjustments for the straps!
