Getting life back on track
Organized by: Chris Sturgill
Hello everyone my name is Chris Sturgill, I am 28 years old and I live in East Tennessee. I normally do not ask others for help I always try to do everything on my own but in the situation I have been put in I feel as if I have no other choice. My wife(soon to be ex-wife) up and left myself, my 9 month old and my 4 year old out of the blue. There was no signs hints or anything. We had been madly in love for many years prior so needless to say I was in extreme shock as well as my 4 year old. Now the hand I've been dealt is taking care of these two boys on my own which includes Food, Diapers, Wipes, Formula, Bottles, Clothing etc. You all know how expensive children are and especially babies. Also I have to take care of myself and figure out a way to pay for an attorney so I can get divorced. Shes been charged 2 seperate times for domestic violence. One against myself and the other against her mother. Both were within about a year and both were in front of the children. Also when she left she took the only vehicle we had which was in my name. I can't even begin to think of all the other things im going to need over the next few months but I'm trying to think of only the bare necessities right now for my boys. This is the toughest time in my life right now and more than anything I need prayer. She has damaged me and my children so much and we do not deserve it. Honestly 1000 dollars is not anywhere near enough for what I need but I feel greedy even asking for that but anything anyone can give will be appreciated more than you will ever know. I've thought of everything I could do to make some money but I couldn't think of anything else. I had a good job but when she left and took the car I had no way to get to work. She wouldn't answer any calls or texts and now my phone is cut off and I cannot afford to pay to turn it back on. Luckily my neighbor has helped me some with allowing me to use their wifi so that does make things somewhat easier. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and even if you do not donate anything please keep my family in your prayers.
