Im raising money to find a home for my family. I recently moved to leave behind the nightmare that made my family fall apart. I was 16 when I had my first son. It was the happiest day of my life. I finally understood what it meant to love someone so much that you would do anything in your power to keep them safe. I was raised by my mom who had a horrible abusive upbringing and she tried everything to make sure we had a clean house and food to eat. She re married and for years i was abused by my step father and never told anyone. I was too scared. I finally was able to leave and thought i found someone who loved me until i went through 10 years of being beaten. My children now 3 boys witnessed me being abused daily until i grew the strength to leave... from one situation to the next nightmare... after hosptialized for being burned with cigarettes and thrown through a window i finally ran after he was arrested and was able to leave. I relocated but am homeless and trying to get a safe place for us. Please know how much of a difference anything would make to get us one step closer to happiness.
