Alcoholic up and left us with nothing


Our family fell apart after our dad fell back into his alcohol addiction and decided he no longer wanted anything to do with us, He was extremely manic and threatened our family continuously by saying he would kill himself or hurt our mom. My sister Eva is 8 and has fatal allergies that prevents her from being able to leave the house. My mom can no longer work these days because she has EDS which is a bone disease which effects all of us but has had more time over the years to get to her and prevent her from being able to work . Despite all this, instead of giving up on us she stays at home and teaches Eva, makes sure the house is always spotless, and does everything she can to make us happy,, including my ex step dad while he was living with us. Sadly, he didn’t appreciate her enough and got back into alcohol when he couldn’t just admit how he truly felt. When leaving  he took all of the money out of every single one of our accounts (savings, checking, his, hers, my college savings, & child support)  knowingly leaving us with nothing and now refuses to pay the bills. We took him to court and got a protection order and they said he would have to pay bills, however he is refusing and my mother is scared to take him to court over it because she does not want him to lose his job and then absolutely no one have any income. I’m working on going back to school but he took out all of the tuition money, he drained every account. He also totaled one of our only cars in a drunken state 2 days before coming to court. I’m working on getting a job but with coronavirus it is almost impossible. So now we have no means of financial support- or any money whatsoever for Christmas. I know it’s near the holidays and $   is tight for everyone but I would never do this   is my family didn’t need help right now! You never assume this could be you and your family  until one day you wake up and it is. anything  helps. Thank you ~ the little house on the corner
