The pain the heartache following this is just unbearable where do I go from now how can I even start to begin my life, the life I had 4weeks ago without my beautiful son Taylor in it. I can't I just can't I've sat thinking where, when, how do I start to remove myself from the nightmare that I am now living ( at present I can't even bare to go into my home). I am trying to gain the strength to function and live my life with some sort of norm, to get back into a routine but without Taylor but it is just impossible. So my new journey in life my new purpose in life is to build a youth community centre in memory of my son ,for the children and teenagers of my community that will be open 6 days a week Monday to Saturday with a 24 hour emergency telephone line for anyone under the age of 18 that may find themselves with nowhere to go due to any given circumstances ,then assisted to the relevant external agency for help when open.. It will involve a drop in centre for all helping to point children and young adults in the right direction in life, support filling in college forms, job application forms , cv,s etc. Also drug and alcohol abuse , contraception, peer pressure, health and wellbeing (healthy eating) etc awareness sessions. However the main purpose is a place where the children can get together and socialise in a safe environment, with lots of activities going on week days, art and craft clubs, sport clubs, book clubs, drama clubs etc or just a place to gather together and have some fun with friends meet new friends have a game of pool or surf the internet , computer gaming etc and on a Friday and Saturday a mini disco and karaoke special events. During school hours I'm hoping that the centre can be used for baby and toddler groups with a small soft play area, and also a sensory room fit for purpose for the disabled children of the community, along side numerous other ideas. Also a lunching club for the older people of the community where they can get together meet new friends reminisce have light lunch cup of tea or coffee maybe a game of bingo and other activities of their choice. My son Taylor was in a placement at the local community St chads church and loved given the older people of the community a cup of tea and biscuit after his placement finished he wanted to go back as a volunteer. In doing all of this I'm hoping the children and adults have a enjoyable safe place where they all can get together as a community especially the teenages instead of gather in street corners etc .Then in time after hopefully achieving what I have set out in doing. I'm hoping come to terms with my loss of my beautiful son Taylor and truly keep his memory alive forever with this centre. So please I am asking for donations to make this all possible doesn't matter how big or how small every penny raised will be one penny closer to achieving this and if you are not in a position to donate please share this link with as many people you can. I would like to say thank you in advance for any donations you may make or any share of this link that you make .
