SDP &SDS Goochland Christmas Mother Family #6 ( Smith Family)
(this is a team hosted event)
Hello SDP and SDS Families......... meet your adopted Goochland Christmas Mother family!
The Smith Family! Carolyn (age48 ), cares for two children. Her 18 year old daughter Chantal and her 8 year old grandson Jakyri. These are definitely tough times for Carolyn. She works two jobs just to be able to support her family. She is anursing aid at Lakewood Manor and also works part time at the school system in medical records. Her job at Lakewood Manor is very stressful and she has been there for 22 years! She enjoys the 15 hours at the county because it gives her a chance to unwind from her busy day before heading home to care for her family. She is heavily involved in her church and would love to dedicate more time to the church. She hopes to work there one day soon since she is so passionate about her faith. Her family means everything to her and she is so appreciative to get our support and she knows that our willingness to help will make their Christmas brighter.
