Mom In Need! Please Help!
Those who know us, know we uprooted our lives and moved from our native city of El Paso, TX , to Arizona 6 1/2 months ago, as a family of 4. These promises were made by my significant other. My autistic son Ethan needed consistency and resources, needed a safe and reliable family network to assist in his daily care , and needed to establish a new "safe zone " with trusting family and friends. (My spouse's family and my spouse were the one that offered this help). We also share a vibrant 22 month baby girl (Lleyton Shae) together , who we needed help with. As it turns out, my significant other had another agenda the entire time, and on March 7, i learned what this was . All while promising brighter days and a safe new life , he was planning to end our relationship and separate our family. On March 7, I was blindsided in the driveway of Our SHARED home, and served by a member of the court , with papers requesting joint custody of Our daughter. This is how I learned he was ending our relationship, leaving behind our family, and a 4 year relationship. He was my best friend who I trusted,a man every one knew I was in love with, and my children's father. In a split second, our world was shattered. I find it difficult to ask for help. But I'm in dire need, so in turn have no choice but to ask. I need immediate help for my kids . ***As it turns out , he was unhappy for a long time and didn't know how to leave us. So he arranged and assisted in our relocation, all the while behaving like he was content and in love with our family. All this so that he could move our daughter out to Arizona, separate us from our home and what our kids knew and were familiar with , wait 6 months until she was considered a legal resident of Arizona , so that he could file papers on me dated the DAY AFTER we had been here 6 months .....So that he can have her out here with joint custody, and not in El Paso. And he succeeded in this cruel and calculated plan. NEVER saying he wanted out....separating a mama from her baby, and crushing the trust and purity of an autistic boys heart. He crushed my son's routine,and took away the only man he ever called daddy. He's lost and sad, and his emotional regression is heartbreaking. He refuses to pay back the only money I had in my savings , that I lent to him when he lost his job for 3 months. We need help. I have 3 weeks to get out of Our home. The need for funds is urgent. Here's why. We shared expenses. On my single income alone, I now am responsible for all. Will receive no child support with 50/50 custody here, I Don't qualify for welfare. I Don't qualify for social security. I Work full time and it's not enough. With any and all help, I promise it goes towards : 1. I have ridiculous unforseen legal expenses now. 2.I have to find a new place to live for my little family in a city where I have NO family in 3 weeks. 3. We will have increased housing and utility expenses not limited to rent and deposits ,with 2 kids alone. 4. Have to pay for 3 types of medication for Ethan at a much pricier rate 5. Have to pay for 2 kids medical insurance alone . 6. Have to pay for a daycare for baby girl, and an after school program for my son with trained specialists ,and any special needs services and transportation. 7. Pay sole handedly for his psychiatrist visits and therapies he need up here. 8. I Paid half of rent. Now i have to pay the whole rent and pay new deposits and rental applications, utility deposits ..... ETC ETC ETC. Anyone that knows me, KNOWS I would not ask if I didn't need help. But these kids are my world, and I will die fighting for them. ANY help is appreciated and could be useful. MY CIRCLE OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND EVEN STRANGERS ARE AMAZING! I pray to God these blessings come to life for us. ! Please share!!!! and spread the word. GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP, THOUGHTS, AND PRAYERS. Please and thank you, Jess, Ethan, and Lleyton Montoya
