Hello! I am Lillian, or you can call me Lilli for short. We are a family of three with my cousin living with us. Im starting this project or campaign called "Lilli's Project" to raise money for my Mother which is ill. But first I'm going to tell you about my background. Growing Up. I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and adopted by the best parents ever. I was originally going to be an abortion, but my mother couldn't have a child so she decided to adopt me at the perfect time. I wouldn't be here if it was for her. Then we moved to Houston, Texas where I grew up and bonded with my home. I was the happiest little girl ever around the ages 4 and 8, with my mother and my father. My father worked all day and my mother took care of me, and I took care of her by helping her with her asthma and things she couldn't get too. Because she was ill. Heres where it started. Now I don't know much about what happened because I was little and my mother doesn't like talking about it, but my mother said, "I had the choice between dying sick right now, or changing to see you grow up." And she changed to see me grow up. She's still watching me grow up today. Later on around the ages 12-14 I became more negative, selfish, rude and unthoughtful. (For what my parents have done for me. I regret everything now, they truly are the best parents ever and I wish I didn't spend those years so disgusting to them.) Which gave my mother more stress, making her land in the hospital a few times in the year 2015. I still didn't change the way I acted, I hated everyone. I was so antisocial, and unkind and thought the world revolved around me. Yes but I did still care about my mother, but I didn't know how to show it. So every other day we would end up yelling at each other, which was basically emotional abuse. With my father being the neutral one in the house, and if he chose sides the other one would get mad, this did not help my mothers sickness at all. Now Whats Happening. Right now, I have been making small changes, and my mother and father still don't think I have changed, but I want them too. I want her to see that I care about them a lot. By starting this. A Project to help out with the family. We are covered in Medical bills, and we Just moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we didn't have the money to move but we did it anyways because my mother felt alone in Texas where she only had 4 friends and no Family. Our house wont sell for the price we need it too. And everything is going down hill. So far for food, everyone in the house has been living off cheap sandwich meat and bread. They don't think I can do it. Honestly I don't think I can do it but I am honestly going to give it a shot. Special Thanks Mayzie for giving me hope. -Lilli Marino
