Hi. My story is too incredible to fit into 400 words.
5 years ago my ex bf was arrested in a spectacular way , while my 3month old son and I waited for him to return home. Of course he never did and instead, our home was raided by police. The worst day of my life. I had no clue what was going on and it would take 2 years before I had a clear idea of his involvement in a sizeable Class A drug supply conspiracy. My ex was a charmer. Known and loved by everyone, educated, handsome but apparently quite greedy as well.
It turned out that we were (amongst others) under surveillance for some time and my ex used me and at times my car as a “clean cover” for some of his activities. Following his arrest, amongst the confusion, daily sickness, insomnia, media coverage, extreme anger, and exhaustion that I lived with daily, I returned to work full time. In addition I attempted to take my ex to court to try get some funds from him. I failed and in the process sold my house just to pay legal fees and all the other expenses that landed with me because of him.
5 years on I am still working as much as I can in order to provide for my son entirely on my own. There is no maintenance and no welfare in this household! While I try crawl my way out of the hole dug for me, it is very difficult to save quickly enough or even just enough, to make a dent in a mortgage application. I am trying to overcome the hatred I have toward my ex for putting me and my son in such a horrid place that I am still trying to recover from financially and mentally.
I really do just need a miracle to help me provide a home that I can one day pass on to my son. In order to do this I am asking for GBP£50,000 to put toward a deposit for a home. I need to get out of renting. Miracles do happen.
