My life, from the day I was a young child has been nothing but tragic. From being severely abused by a single mother who was an alcoholic, growing up in Europe and surviving the war, leaving the country and moving to USA with my mother and younger sister only to experience more abuse from not just my mother but her husband as well. Being in several foster homes where I was bullied, hit and sexually abused. All of these things led to me never having a home or family.
I graduated high school with a 4.0 gpa and earned a full scholarship to Savannah college of art and design by submitting portfolios to the college and writing essays for the national women’s legislative council.
I finished 2 years of college with my major being fashion design. I moved around trying to find a place to start a life on my own and ended up meeting my ex fiancé who is also a father of two of our children.
He ended up being verbally, mentally and emotionally abusive and after I had our daughter it got worse.
Wjen I decided I was not going to let my daughter grow up in an abusive environment, my ex fiancé took our daughter who was 1 yo at the time and left me pregnant.
I lost everything. A home, my daughter, I had no money, no car, no job and no friends thanks to his controlling ways.
He has been gone and off the grid with my baby girl for over 3 years now.
I have a 2 yo son who recently got placed in foster care since I have no support of any kind and am stuck in a small college town with no resources capable of helping someone in my position.
I have lost everything and I continue to fight each and every day to continue to be strong for my babies, but I have come to a point where no matter how strong I am and no matter how hard I try to get a job, get to a job with no transportation, no family and no friends helping me in any way, where I desperately need help.
Please, to whom ever has taken the time to read my story, I hope you can help me and help my children!
