A MOTHER OF TWO...
SUDDENLY A MOTHER OF SIX
On July 27, the sister of Lori Thomas passed away, leaving behind 4 young boys. These boys are now cared for by their Aunt Lori, making her a single mother of 6 boys in total, ages 6 through 15.
Lori is faced with the challenge of fulfilling the boy’s immediate needs, while also providing for future college educations and various milestones and activities that are the hallmarks of a happy and healthy adolescence.
But there’s hope! You can help Lori raise these boys to be the men God intends for them to be through your donations. Lori’s situation is an opportunity for us all to act as the hands and feet of Jesus, as best captured in this verse…
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” ~James 1:27.
HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS
Being a good steward of your generous donation is of utmost importance to Lori and her 6 boys. Lori strives to not only utilize financial blessings as efficiently as possible, but to also use them as “teachable moments” for the boys, to learn about generosity, kindness, and financial responsibility, so that they may introduce these traits into the world themselves.
These boys can eat! As any parent knows, the expense of feeding growing children (especially very active young boys) can be immense!
Providing adequate healthcare is an ongoing challenge, as health insurance for a family that more than doubled in size overnight is a large monthly expense.
The expenses around water, electric, heating, cooling, and internet for schoolwork aren’t getting cheaper. With the addition of 4 people under one roof, utility bills have increased.
These boys grow fast! It sometimes seems like they outgrown clothing items immediately after purchase – not to mention the occasional rip or tear that all active children experience!
