Getting a car and starting over

Donation protected

My name is Nick Russom.  Here is my story...
  In the beginning of February I had 3 daughters. We lived in a nice home with a great family dynamic  We were living the dream.  For a short time I lived in heaven on earth.  On February 7th  my beautiful 2 year old daughter was taken from this world entirely to soon.  Presley was such a joy and brought joy to everyone around her.  There is an on going investigation.  There are no words to explain the heart ache of losing my sweet, perfect, innocent daughter.  The nights are the hardest.  When I close my eyes the sadness becomes almost unbearable.  When I thought I couldn’t handle any more heart break I was dealt another blow and another and another… Since the investigation began I have lost my house, car and all of my belongings inside my house without my knowledge.  The State has taken custody of my other two daughters,  2 year old Lilly and 1 year old Layla, while the investigation is ongoing.  I cannot return to my union job until the investigation is completed and I have transportation.   A family friend has been kind enough to let me stay on his couch.  I am taking on small side jobs when I can, but they are few and far between.  Giving up is not an option.  I have two confused and sad little girls wondering where their parents and sister are.  

I am working to get another vehicle now so I can return to my work in the union.  After that is accomplished I will need to start putting together a new home for my girls.  New apartment, furniture, household items. 

I have had so many people reach out to suggest a go fund me account, but I have been uncomfortable asking for help.  Pride has worked against me in this instance.  I have to step out of my comfort zone and ask for help now.  My daughters need me and I can’t get back to them fast enough on my own.   Giving my little girls the comfort and normalcy they need is my number one priority right now.   Their family has been split apart.  Their home and most importantly their sister will be gone.  Lilly and Presley were very close in age.  They were not only sisters, but best friends and I know adjusting to Presley being gone will be a challenge in itself. 

Pride aside, I need help now.  Anything will be appreciated more than I can tell you.  Thank you so much, God Bless.
