Family Profile #1:

Single mother to 3 children whose father passed away unexpectedly. The mom juggles working long hours to pay the bills with taking care of the kids and getting them to school/appointments. The youngest has trouble with his eyes so they are often going to the doctor to address those concerns. When they have time, the family loves watching movies and doing crafts together.
Family Details:
Mom, Boy age 9, Girl age 4 and Boy age 2.

Family Profile #2:

This has been a very tough year for our adopted family. The youngest son was born prematurely and has many medical and health problems since birth. As a result, the family spends a lot of time going to Chicago and Champaign for doctor appointments. Dad was let go from his during COVID and has only recently gone back. They are making every attempt to get back on their feet but this year has been particularly challenging. Any bit you can give will help!
