Hi my name is Krista, and I’m a single mother who lives pay check to pay check. I’ve been independent with my twins since they were 7 years old and now they are 22 years old and will be 23 years on March 25th, 2022. I have been independent and taking care of everything for my family till now and I really need everyone’s help.
I have been suffering depression for the past 10 years and decided that life wasn’t worth living anymore. I work to pay bills then go home and hide in my room. I did not talk to my kids and thought just my presence was enough. I haven’t been a mother to my kids these past 10 years.
I am so grateful for my little sister who funded me and put me into this program called the “Atlas project” and I am no longer depressed. I want to live again, to love again, and I see my twins suffering. My sons don’t have a will of their own, they live in their room like I did and they have no dreams or hope. They don’t see any future for themselves except to live pay check to pay check for me. They barely smile or talk to me anymore and I love them so much!
Now with the statistics of young adults having the highest suicide rate in the United States, I am worried. Please help me heal their hearts, strengthen their will, and give them a bright future so that they can live a better life.
