Domestic Awareness for Shawneda
From multiple sclerosis, to gun shot wounds nothing ever stops Shawneda Pennington. On January 27th 2018 my mother Shawneda, and sister Garrah Hampton were both shot multiple times by my step father. By the Grace of God, and lots of prayers, they are on the road to recovery. He is in jail, and we are still awaiting trial. It’s been a really hard road. There has been tons of expenses that has headed our way like medical bills, supplies, relocation, etc. Unfortunately after 10 months, the stress hasn’t stopped. We are still needing all the help we can get. We greatly thank everyone in advance because every dollar has helped, and will continue to help somehow. Just remember never to take domestic violence lightly, and always do everything you can to help yourself or someone else.

Update Everyone!!: We had another court hearing today, and just found out mom will not be getting any financial relief until divorce court (who knows how long that will be). The services out here will help her some, but it's just reimbursements. We will have to be paying for flights, moving expenses, prescriptions, etc, out of pocket until then. We are trying to get her back home to all of us that love her ASAP!! I appreciate and love everyone who have helped this far, because you truly have no clue how every dollar has provided some type of relief. I hate to keep asking, but please we need support! Every dollar counts! PLEASE PLEASE SHARE!!! We want to get her home and safe!!!
I went to preparation for the hearing today!! There is so many questions and so much I had experienced that I wasn't even aware was abuse!! So Many signs I did not see.... As for yesterday, The surgeon needs some of the shattered bones some time to heal after 1st bone graft so, I am grounded here for at least another moth and a half then 2 weeks from surgery they are doing beginning of April. I am going through intakes and every process that I can get in touch with and doing everything I can... Garrah will, also, be returning to WV. Her father n I are working on everything to keep her as safe and secure as possible. Please continue to help in anyway you can. One trip to courthouse was 43 there, 43 back !! I am not wasting I am surviving. I , also, have an extreme time with my stress levels and MS. That is a recipe for disaster!! Please continue, I know how things come and are fresh at first but a new story comes n forgets this!! But My Girls n Myself can never move on and wait for the new excitement!! My oldest has stepped away from nursing school for a semester, n came here so is not working. Garrah has a road to full recovery and will have to suffer with missing a semester of her 10th grade year. I can't even begin to think of the many ways I have to start over. Thank you All for continued support and Prayers. They are much appreciated!!
Yesterday I started the first of my reconstructive surgery. They did a bone graft on my lower left jaw where he put the gun. They took out 8 teeth that were broken past the gum line. The DA informed me here there will be court on the 20th . He wants to come home and do his kidney dialysis!!! He has a private attorney, as well. Whole he took everything from my daughter n myself . We need continued prayers and help. It cost in average of $60 a day to just get to n from the places I need because they have not , yet, found our car. Thanks for everything you have done for us!! May God Richly Bless each and every one of u. There is a picture of a few teeth of mine homicide left behind!!
Tomorrow starts the first of 8 months to a year of reconstruction for my teeth, jaw n my half tongue!! Lol. My Baby is still in need of prayer. I am , sincerely, thankful for all everyone is doing for us. The Devil is still trying to break us but we r God's Children and through Christ all things are possible. I know it is very hard on everyone to give away finances. Mist everyone I know lives paycheck to paycheck. As do I, n my husband controlled every finance. I don't even know where to pay my own bills here n they took most all documents. We r beyond thankful and appreciative of the sacrifices u are making for my daughter n myself!!
