Let’s help Andrea to be the best Mom she can be!

Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting our fundraiser. I am asking for help with basic necessities to pay for my schooling, rent, car and other needs for my son Grant and I, while I pursue legal custody and child support. Currently, I am working a full-time job and working on my days off to make ends meet. All while trying to do online school to create and market my wellness courses. Sadly that is all on hold until I can get the legal ball rolling. Right after I invested in my schooling, my EBT (food stamps) were cut off, and I was in a minor accident. Paradoxically, I was unable to put my car in the shop, because I couldn’t afford a rental car, but through this fundraiser I was able to get the support I needed. Thanks to all that helped so very much!
I’m a Certified Health and Wellness Coach and a published children’s book author, with hopefully many more on the way. It’s my passion to help others, but now, I must ask for help if I want to make my dreams of serving my community in a more meaningful way, a reality, and be able to survive at the same time.
Where is Grant’s father in all this? The little bit he has done for us has gone a long way, and I’m truly thankful. But he has been struggling with addiction and can not help me at the moment. Although he has admitted to needing help on several occasions, he keeps falling back into denial while his life is falling apart and continuing to be abusive and unaccountable. Because I do not make enough money to afford my apartment on my own, he is on my lease, and has threatened to take himself off. He has regularly threatened to take my car that he has paid for as well because it is in his name. So, for now, I am on my own and it is time to seek out legal help. I realize the only way he is going to get the help he needs and be motivated to take a more active and positive role in his son’s life, is if he’s forced by the courts. Soon, through my insurance at work, I will be starting trauma therapy as well.  Then maybe I can regain my sanity.  Hopefully, things will get better with time.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to read this. The support from our community has meant the world to us! We are deeply grateful for your kindness and consideration.
