I am a single parent of 2 and cannot afford medical aid. I took my daughter to an orthodontist a year ago in the hopes of getting braces fitted. Unfortunately, it has been very tough for me financially as I receive very little assistance from their dad. My daughter is a very beautiful young girl, she will be 15 with her next birthday, 10 January 2019.
However, due to the state of her teeth, she has become shy of even smiling. As a mother, it saddens me extremely that I cannot do even this for her. Currently I am juggling in terms of keeping them both fed, clothed and in school. Our biggest need is the braces right now. However, before they can be fitted, she will also have to see the dentist for extractions and fillings, which is also a very costly thing. I therefore appeal to any person out there who is willing to assist a young girl gain back her confidence.
I would sacrifice anything for my kids, but when funds are not available, then it makes me feel inadequate as a parent that I cannot at least provide this much for her. She will be advancing to grade 10 in the new year, which means that she will not have long before matric. It is the dream of any young girl to look beautiful on their matric farewell. I want her to be able to smile without worrying about what her teeth looks like.
