Mother of two is sidelined with high-risk pregnancy

Heather of St. Michaels is expecting her third child, and this pregnancy is complicated. She must be on strict bed rest, and that means she is unable to work.

What’s more, her older children, Kaylee, 12, and Victoria, 10, help their mother when they get home from school by doing all of the chores. Heather relies on them heavily these days, but with no paycheck coming in, money is tight.

Despite her desire to give her hard-working and loving daughters the presents they deserve, she can’t afford to this year.
