Help Brittany Fight

Dear friends and family,

A good friend of mine here in Asheville, NC needs your support as she is currently facing the fight of her life. Brittany is fighting the long, financially and emotionally draining battle to maintain custody of her 10 month old son.

Brittany is a smart, talented and passionate Superwoman...she is a single mama raising her sweet boy, Noah, while also running a Wedding & Portrait Photography Business full time, which she has for the last 10 years.  

From the moment Brittany found out she was pregnant, her entire life changed and her complete focus became about being the best mother she could possibly be to her baby. Brittany has created a beautiful life for Noah, one that is full of overwhelming love and devotion.  She works tirelessly to give her son everything that he needs and is the sole provider for his physical and emotional well being.  Everything Brittany does is for the benefit of Noah.  She has exclusively breastfed her son for the last ten months, she has attended new mom support groups since Noah was born, she regularly attends First Baptist Church with Noah and she takes Noah to interactive mother/baby classes and activities weekly in addition to hosting playdates with other babies who are Noah's age so that he can learn socialization with other babies.  She is the one and only constant in his daily life.  She is there when he wakes up in the middle of the night {which is sometimes multiple times per night when learning new skills or teething - which is constant these days!}, she is the only person who works tirelessly to provide a stable, happy and loving home for him and she is his safe space when he needs comfort and love.  She is the only parent that Noah knows.  She is his whole  entire world.

In August, her son's father sued her for sole custody of Noah despite the fact that he had only seen him 5 times for a total of about 10 non-consecutive hours each time {his choice} prior to the law suit.  For Brittany, this was a devastating and overwhelming development as Noah's father lives in Chicago.  She retained a trustworthy lawyer, but the legal fees have been unmanagable. In five months, Brittany has already paid almsot $30,000 in Legal Fees. Brittany doesn't have this kind of disposable income. Before all of this, she was a Single Mama and a Small Business Owner and was doing a little better than just getting by but now, with her Savings Gone & Noah's little College Fund Gone - Brittany has been working overtime in her business, selling her personal belongings and even moved out of the cozy home she had built for Noah and into an apartment in order to keep up with the costs.  She is willing to do whatever she needs to do in order to keep her son,  to continue to provide a beautiful life for him. 

If you feel so compelled, Brittany could use some support from generous hearts.  All donations to this fund will go towards her legal fees, which will help lift the financial burden she is now under.  Thank you for helping out and please know you are making a huge difference in the lives Brittany and beautiful Noah.
