To whom this is being read by,
I’d like to take the moment and simply thank you for taking time out of your day to read our story. I’m not one to ask for help. My mom taught us from an early age that if you want something, work hard and you’ll achieve it which fir my whole life I have until it was turned upside down leaving me a single mother who is now fighting for custody from a controlling narcissistic emotionally abusive man that wants possessions not wife and child. 9 years ago we adopted his niece and I use that term lightly because he never allowed me to formally adopt her as he saw it as a way to control and keep me there. If as he put it, I stepped out of line he would say things like act right or I’ll take her and leave or you’ll never see her again unless it’s his way so I would fold and bow because protecting her was my highest priority. A few years ago I was in a rollover near fatal accident causing nearly 50 breaks throughout the left side of my body including my neck and a 6 in skull fracture. About two hours after waking up in the hospital, I was faced with another nightmare. My now ex husband called to say he was divorcing me, moving another woman in because in his words “You’re even more useless now that you’re broken”. At this point the doctors only have me a very small chance of making it through the next 72 hours but they didn’t expect my daughter to call begging me to live so I could rescue her. So I fought with everything I had and made it through then had to beg and plead for the next two and a half months to see my beautiful baby girl. 10 months later he allowed her to come stay with me but it hasn’t stopped him from walking in unannounced to threaten ( often with our daughter present) that is 8 don’t do this or that he will take her and they’ll leave and never see her again. I’ve contacted both an adoption attorney and family law specializing in child custody and they all feel with the evidence and witnesses I have that I stand a remarkable chance at custody and adoption. If you know anything about custody and adoption cases, you know how costly they can be and both want about a 1/3 of the cost up front in order to be eligible for the payment plan. After rent, bill, insurance car note and gas, there’s just not a lot our budget can allow for. I’ve recently started a side business which will help make the monthly payments but won’t get the retainer as quickly as it’s needed because everyday I’m not fighting for her, is one that he could decide to take her. And I made a promise to her that I would do everything in my power to keep her safe and make her feel protected.
Thank you for reading our story and making us a part of your day. it means the world to us
thank you again
have a wonderful day
A mama and her baby
