I may be 22 and look 17, but I’m actually 4 on the inside.

I know I keep posting about needing donations (and honestly I’m still a bit ashamed of doing so), but I figured it’d be a good idea to make a post showing who the donations are going towards - my family. 

As you’ve heard me reiterate over and over again, our house is being foreclosed and we desperately need money in order to find a place to live. We’re all recovering from our abusive father, so getting a job and finding money isn’t so simple.  I’m planning on setting up a print shop to make extra money there, but that hasn’t been set up yet (stay tuned!) 

Not only is our house in foreclosure, but we hardly have money for food and basic needs.

We all love each other so much, and all of us badly want to move on from the abuse and heartache, and in order to do that, we need some help.

Donating even just $1 will help my family have a start at a new life, free of abuse.

Even if you cannot donate, please please share.

My family is so grateful to everyone who has donated and shared our story, thank you all to the moon and back <3

Hello,

We’ve come to you to ask you for help, putting away any silly shame we have in doing so, because we are truly in need.

On July 30th, 1992, my mother married my father, thus beginning the hardest 20 years of her life, full of abuse and emotional turmoil.  Fortunately, she was able to break free from his immediate control, and now is in the process of divorce.  He, however, still continues to punish and torment us — putting our house in foreclosure, thus leaving us without a stable home place, leaving our house in disrepair — leaks, mold, broken toilets, you name it, we have it.  He’s left our cats, which are such a huge support system for us, with health problems that we cannot afford to pay for; Allison has what seems to be a large mammary tumor or mammary infection; Max has Urinary tract issues, and we need to get the rest of our cat’s shots updated.

He has failed to pay child support, leaving us without food, and then telling us that this is what we deserve. I even had to drop out of high school in the beginning of my senior year, because of all the emotional and physical pain he put me, as well as my whole family, through during that time, as well as the lasting affects of the abuse I endured as a child — that we all endured. 

I know my family, and I know that this is not what we deserve — this is not what anyone deserves.  We want so desperately to move on, and this is why we have come to you.  With our house in foreclosure, we desperately need money to move, and we need money to help our cats with their health problems.  Anything, any amount of money is such a huge huge help to us — thank you so much.
