How we helped a family recover from a horrific crime.
J is a grandmother in Texas who is now raising her four-year-old granddaughter. Earlier this year, her daughter and her grandson were murdered in a case of arson. Luckily, her granddaughter was spending the night with her when the rest of the family was killed.
With the father already deceased, J was the only family capable of taking care of the child. Even in a case like this, there are legal hurdles to finalizing an adoption.
At the time, we helped J cover the legal expenses of adopting her granddaughter. In December, we provided J with $500 in gift cards to help her give her little girl a good Christmas and to help with any other needs they have.
