Recovering from stillbirth and other HORRIFIC events.
Organized by: Veronica Balle-mason
last year was the worst year ever. In February I was in a car accident while I was 16 weeks pregnant with my husband and my 6th boy (two were his from a previous marriage, two were mine from a previous, and this was to be our second together). In the accident my sons umbilical cord was stretched and caused it to be restricted essentially starving him to death at 27 weeks. I gave birth to him on May 14th 2015. Benjamin Randal 286 grams with 11 weeks of multiple appointments just hoping to get him to a minimal weight, but that was not Gods plan for us. At the time as a stay at home mother even with my other 5 boys running around this had devastated me. My best friend at the time was constantly over at my house to help me while my husband went to work. By the time August rolled around everything had taken its toll and tore our family apart. After almost 7 years of a perfect marriage, he left with her. Leaving me with all bills, no job, and more devastation to overcome. To make matters worst I tried to go on a date at which I had been drugged which led to a dui and as I was only breathalyzed did not show whatever I was slipped. I am trying so hard to be on my feet and straighten my life out. Dealing with being a single mother who lives 20 miles or so from the closest town has had its challenges. As I am moving forward and pushing on the weight of not being able to make enough money to make ends meet, I am now turning to this. I am trying to save my home for my boys which my mothers life insurance paid the down payment on and get back to a spot of not drowning. I have cancelled all unnessary bills (i.e. No internet, cable, home phone, crap cheap cell service etc) I have always been extremely strong and independent and do not ever ask for help or handouts but now this is about saving what I do have for my children so I will swallow my pride and ask for help financially, legally, advice etc. please if you can't help then please share. I have overcome a high risk childhood of drugs, gangs, and the like due to my aunt and uncles love. I have been on my own since I was 17 and always supported myself. My first child was born when I was 22 in wedlock. I completed 4 years of full time work full time school with 4 boys while my husband was the stay at home father. I had a great credit score and always made ends meet and now I'm just looking for any help to get me back there for my boys and myself. Thank you for taking the time to read and support us in anyway that you can.
