Support for Baby Aubrey and Mommy
This gofundme account is being setup to accept donations that will solely be used for the benefit and care of Aubrey now and for her future. Unfortunately, Aubrey's mom and dad were not married (they had secretly planned a marriage date of a week before her due date) therefore her mom is not eligible for beneficiary benefits or many other assistance programs as she is not technically a "widow". Donations will be used for new and increased expenses including child/day care (averages $1000/mth), health insurance premiums/copays, daily necessities (DIAPERS!), court costs* (see below) and college fund establishment.
The family extends their heartfelt gratitude and blessings to each and everyone of you that extend your help to Kathryn and Aubrey through donation, prayer, condolences, or combination of. Your assistance, care and concern are PRICELESS. Thank you for everything!
Special thanks to our AMAZING photographer that captured so much more emotion and meaning in the photos of our precious Aubrey than we could have ever imagined. These photos (& more) will be cherished by Aubrey in days to come. A connection to the father she never met but that loved her dearly and wanted to be a daddy to her and husband to her mommy more than anything else in the world!
The family would like to share another piece of their story as told by a close family friend, Kathryn's "Mama Michelle", as posted on her blog.
*Note: In the State of Florida, a father's name cannot be identified on a birth certificate for paternity unless he is present to sign his consent or the mother is a legal widow. Paternity must be established for Aubrey to be eligible for any program assistance through state or federal programs hence the court costs (DNA testing & court orders establishing legal paternity). Another nightmare to conquer. :-(
My sons father passed when I was 8 weeks pregnant. We were not married. You need to contact Social Security Administration-(in SC )as long as a family member was aware of him fathering the child they pay out benefits. I had no trouble whatsoever. They also pay a one time fee of $255 to the mother. In my case Department of Social Services paid for the DNA testing to establish paternity. You will also be able to do an amendment to the babies birth certificate with the fathers name once it is established. Good Luck!! My son just Graduated High School this year.
Hello Ma'am my name is melanie i am 16 years old and i know you may not believe me but i have a special ability to see and talk to spirits hector has come to me today i was on my phone when he came and started talking to me telling me all these things like how he loves you and says he wishes he could see his princess he wants me to tell you he will be watching over you and your beautiful baby girl he says he wishes he wouldnt have trusted the man he called his so called friend he says you will always be his queen and that she will always be his little princess and that hes safe now he will be your daughters and your guardian angel i wish you luck ma'am and i am dearly sorry for your lost
So sorry for the loss, I can relate, I was two months pregnet when I lost my unborn child's father, the state will pay for paternity testing or your local Dhs, and you go to social security office, as long as you have mom, baby and a close relative of dads they can get you positive dna testing, I been there, good luck
She should be able to get survivor benefits as long as the baby has his last name.
What did the friend do ? How could he be so thoughtless and careless !
You are not alone ! It's a battle to get benefits for your daughter , but worth it . Each state is different with their intestancy laws (which is what ssi goes by), however I have a court order and and waiting for a response , feel free to message me for guidance .
My daughter dad died a few weeks before she was born u have my condolences
My sons father passed when I was 3 months pregnant all I had to do was have his mother acknowlege that it was his child I was carrying and he became heir to his estate.

My condolences to you and yours... I was wondering if you know about the site change.org you should go and get a petition going to try to change the rules and regulations and qualifications of how you were treated......
