I have a 10 month old and we need immediate assistance in getting funds for a lawyer and to get home of our own.
we are currently (involuntarily) living in a dire situation with the abusive alcoholic father of my and his family.
we were involved for a few months before he (childs father) showed his true colors and started becoming emotionally and sexually abusive, and when I finally had the courage enough to leave, my baby had already been concieved and I didnt (still dont) believe in abortion so I kept him, regardless of the circumstances in which he was born, & so it was thus the real trouble began.
He comes from a family with money, and since the baby has been born they have been using their money to control me, and to unlawfully keep me incarcerated within their home, and whenever I tried to leave they would manipulate me using the baby, threatening to take him away from me and use their money to hire a nanny for me, hence for almost 2 years now (pre-natal to post-natal) I’ve had to put up with all the abuse, which has left me absolutely depressed, even more so because I have to be happy for my baby (regardless of the way he was convinced, I have grown to love him immensely, and want him to grow up with the love I never had from my family that never wanted me,and has always refused to support me in any way, and have always taken great satisfaction to my down fall).
But as the months go on it is becoming harder to repress it all for his sake, especially now that he is old enough to see and feel when I am down.
The mother & the son (childs father) have proved they do not care about us, they wont allow me to go work so I can support my baby myself, yet they refuse to help out with anything, and of recent months they’ve stopped buying food and now eat out or bring take-out which they greedily consume amongst themselves, and only buy food (even then, none of it has any nutriotional value) when there’ll be visitors, to fill the cupboards and buy the baby stuff just to feed people with the illusion that all is well.
I have documented proof of all of this abuse, and have since contacted the social welfare, but be that as it may, I will still lose the case due to financial instability, so each day we continue to live, and hearing my baby’s little tummy breaks my heart more than anything in the world, but we have hope and it keeps us going.
Each day we live in fear of leaving this place in a bodybag, or worse yet I fear some day they drive me to an extent of psychosis, and they’d be the ones to leave in bodybags, on that note I appeal to any of you out there with good hearts to offer however little amount you have
so My baby & I can leave this place, to be free, safe and most importantly Happy again.
Thank you! :)
