My name is Natisha, a single mother and I would do anything for my kids, as would most mothers. On Sunday, (8/17/19) all three of my children were involved in a near fatal car crash. While I thought my kids were safe with their aunt and cousins, as I moved my family into a new place, my sister took them without my knowledge. It wasn’t until I got a call from a MD state trooper did I find out that they were no longer safe.
All three of them were injured and have had surgeries one after the other. I normally do not ask for anything from anyone, but I find myself in need, not for myself but for my kids. Madison is 9 and I haven’t even gotten her school supplies and uniforms, Malaya is 5, she would be starting kindergarten had this not happened. Now, she will be delayed starting school because she sustained the worse and most injuries. She has broken jaw, a fractured wrist, both tibias are fractured, bruised lungs and a host of other injuries. But she’s a fighter. Myles is 2 and recovering from a tear in his bowel.
I refuse to leave this hospital until all three of my babies are home. I work for a University as a contractual admin assistant, so during this absence I will not be getting paid. I have exhausted all of my sick time and PTO. I will be unable to provide for my kids beyond the little help my family is able to provide me. We have rent, gas and electric, food, therapy, clothes, transportation, and the list goes on and on.
I need help. I usually don't ask folks for support but I truly can not do this on my own. Whatever you can contribute will be appreciated. This isn't for me. This is for the support of my babies who didn't ask for this.
