A moms hope for a better future
Organized by: Juana Johnson
Well if my life could be a book it probably will be written until I leave this earth. Im a mom of two girls. My daughters are under 2. We left my soon to be ex husband July 25th 2016 to live with my parents until I can give my daughters a better life. My husband had domestic violence in his family. His step dad they said. The mom had a lock on her fridge to keep him out due to 'drinking' but I never saw him drink. I heard doors slam some arguments and my husband even shoved his step father in the hall a few weeks after my second was born February. I am on TANF right now. My husbands being investigated for an inappropriate behavior towards my sister who is blind and my twin not to mention is disabled. I took my girls out of that household due to living in a bedroom for most the time and not having house keys to come or go. My personal property was also locked up by my mother in law in her safe while I lived there and she refused to give it to me until I moved out. I had to lie to my husband on why I wanted out was in reality to the stress from the pending report still ongoing on him. Since we have been gone the girls are thriving. We have a bigger struggle ahead though. Stability. Im planning on going to school and work. I know 2 under 2 will be hard. But I had to get out of an unhappy life and marriage. I do have a go fund me open but just for lawyer assistance. Gofundme/lawyerforjohnsongirlsandmom This is more a starter fund toward an appartment deposit plus anything personal towards a toy for the girls that may be comforting since we are being denied access into my mother in laws home by them to get anything including bottles, or meds.
