Student, 23, becomes a foster parent to his pregnant cousin

A student from Australia becomes a legal foster father to his pregnant 17 year old cousin who was homeless and a recovering drug addict. The cousins parents are drug addicts and the baby's father is in prison.
Tommy Connolly took her under his wing to help ensure that she kept the baby and also to help give the mother and baby the beginnings of a new life.
He said "I've spent the last few months working, moving houses, having meetings with different departments, signing forms, being assessed and monitored, chasing funds, setting up her bank accounts, buying baby stuff, furniture, going to hospital/doctor appointments, and getting her settled in."  {Taken from Australian Student Tommy Connolly Drops Everything To Give His Pregnant, Homeless Cousin a Better Life }
Tommy's brother started a GoFundMe account for this little family. Tommy's Little Family Fund There is more information about this on the gofundme page.
