Sun Sentinel - Never Forget about Caregiving Youth

 November is National Family Caregivers Month, complete with presidential proclamations since 1997.

Boca Raton Tribune: Essay Contest Reveals Every Day challenges of Caregiving Youth Project Members

 

By Vickie Middlebrooks

“Chin Music has taken me to a place where pain meets sorrow and is conquered by love and devotion” is the opening sentence of the $1200 winning essay submitted by Kelsy Timot, a member of the Caregiving Youth Project of the American Association of Caregiving Youth since 2008. She is a senior at Atlantic High School.

Kelsy, who had to grow up quickly to care for her young niece, scripted, “Facing my own every day challenges has meant putting my own childhood behind me….I have done everything that a mother should do and have seen everything only a mother should see…I have spent many a sleepless night because my niece has had trouble breathing from birth. Furthermore, since my mom works, I do the cooking and cleaning, as well as bathing my niece, and getting her ready for school. As a result, my schoolwork has been affected. I neither have time to study nor the time to enjoy myself. Caregiving Youth of America has helped me by giving me time to be a child again. Hanging out with kids my age and meeting people who cope with the same circumstances as I do have helped me overcome the challenges I face…it takes the strength of a mighty wind within us to seek help and not feel ashamed of whom we are…”
