I am a single mom of two beautiful girls. Yes from different dads. The first picture of my oldest.  I raised my oldest Brianna without help for 10 years. Brianna's dad knew i was pregnant and where to find me. He wanted me to abort the baby when I found out I was pregnant. He told me to never contact him again or he would make my life a living hell, when I told him I was keeping the baby. 

After Brianna's little sister was born and I was laid off from my job I went to my county to see if I could get help.  Colorado insisted on finding Brianna's dad. And when they found him it was a bitter sweet moment.  Brianna wanted to know her real dad, but he did not make things easy on either of us, and that is when a long line of court dates started.  The last four years have been extremely hard on us.  Most of Brianna's visits with her dad did not go well. The amount of mental abuse he has done to Brianna has been excremely hard to witness. An example of a threat he used on Brianna is that he would find a way to get full custody of her and he would make sure she never saw her little sister or the rest of the family again. The accusations and threats that he has made on us has been really hard. 

After he took me court for un-justified reasons I aquired an attorney.  With my limited budget, I can not keep up with the ever growing attorney fees, that come from the never ending harassing and threatening messages I get from him. As of Nov 2015 the child support court ruled there will be no more child support. So my already tight budget has gotten even tighter. 

I am trying to give Brianna a voice in the court hearings and this Family Law Attorney I have has been listening to Brianna as well as to me.

Even though her dad has been released of all financial responsibility of Brianna, he has made new threats of opening another case against us. He has also continued the mental abuse on Brianna making her doubt her self worth. Please help me protect Brianna and continue to give her a voice, by donating here. Current goal is $50,000.  Because I am looking at 4 years or more of him and court stuff. 

May God be smiling down on us.  Thank you for reading this and if you can help, even if it only a few dollars, We are deeply greatful.  Thank you.
