My name is Deborah Brown. I was adopted in 1976 and have finally found my biological family through Ancestry DNA. I have been on my own since I was 16, married twice to complete loosers who abused me and the children. We finally got away. I have 4 children, all boys. My adopted father passed away when I was 16 and adopted mother never liked me and wouldn’t let me live with her after my father died. She is now in a nursing home.
I have never received child support for any of my children even after applying for state help in getting it. I’ve worked 2 and 3 jobs just to support my family and I have finally found my biological family. I would love to move closer to my father and brother. They are 7 hours away from me. (My biological mother is autistic and is in a group home and doing well there.) We live in a RV at the moment because that’s all I can afford. Minimum wage barely covers rent and this RV was alot cheaper. I have done odd jobs to pay for utilities and kids clothes and shoes. I get my clothes at food banks that offer clothes. Haven’t had anything new in years. My car is not new but paid for. I am asking for $4,000 for gas money, rent on a cheap home, utility deposits and some cheap furniture to start off with. Mainly we need mattresses and a couch. We have no furniture. I have done the best I can alone. I can get a job somewhere if someone could please help me move so I can be near my biological family. They will help me get on my feet and possibly finish college. I have tried several times but bills always got in the way. I have no credit cards or any way to pay for anything except what we have to have. We live paycheck to paycheck and it doesn’t cover everything. I am alone with my boys and just need some help getting on my feet and close to my family. I can do better and have some support. Something I have never had is support and someone to believe in me. I am asking for the bare minimum just to get started off in the new place. Thank you for helping or taking the time to read my plea. My phone camera is broken so I can’t post a picture of us.
