Vanessa is a single, proud mom of 2 beautiful children. Paizge is 12 and Dominick is 10.
When Paizge was 9 months old she met her step father. This man stepped up to the plate and raised Paizge as his own. He was there for Vanessa and Paizge when she needed someone most. He did everything for Paizge. We thought he really was the Worlds Greatest Dad. After Vanessa and Paizge's step dad broke up he continued to take Paizge as his own. Paizge does have a little brother named Dominick. Paizge's step dad is Dominick’s dad. He did everything for thoes kids. He was their world. He would drive all night long from TX to MN just to see his kids. He took both kids every summer for 4 years and raised them to be beautiful, caring, smart children. Even him as a single dad most of the kids life, he was Mr. Mom. I remember several nights the kids crying for their dad and reminessing of all their favorite things about him and the places he would take them to. Vanessa was so blessed to meet someone that stepped up and wanted to be a family to her and her daughter. He was nothing but, short of great. He was the "perfect dad".
In May 2017, Vanessa got EVERY parents worst news. She had found out that her sweet baby girl was sexually assulted. Not sure what was worse? That it happened in general or who did this to her little girl.
Vanessa found out that Paizge's step dad had been sexually assulting her since "as long as she can remember".
Anyone that knows Paizge knows, she is the most caring, sweet, innocent little girl. I have never met someone so caring as her. Her mind is so beautiful and innocent. Having to hear Vanessa cry the tears about "How did I not see the signs?", "Why did this happen to Paizge? Why her?". Having to think about a sweet baby/toddler having to go thru this with the man that came in and saved Vanessa and Paizge world. The man that these kids look up to and call dad. How does a person get over that? Vanessa is a hell of a lot stronger then most people I know.
2 others have come forward and confessed this man had done this to them. These children are around the same age as Paizge.
Vanessa and the kids have just come back from Texas where this monster was acquited unfairly of charges regarding Paizge. Since the monster is in the Amy as a Nurse, he has access to all of the children on base.
Vanessa is a wreck. These kids feel so helpless, hopeless, sad and lost.
Vanessa is still legally married to this monster but, they have been seperated for 5 years and has since then she has moved back to Minnesota with both children. These kids have been going to see him this entire time on there own.
Vanessa has 1 last chance to bring all of this to court with civilians.
Vanessa needs this money for lawyers for Paizge's new trial, custody hearing for Dominick to make sure his dad will never be able to hurt him. Also for Vanessas divorce. Vanessa's car about 2 weeks ago got totaled and has been renting a rental car that is draining her account. She hasn't been able to work as she needs to be in Texas for all the trial. She has extinguished all funds getting to TX, hotels, rental car, counselling costs.
This isnt a matter if we "hope" she can pay for all of this. She CAN'T. All funds have been spent on getting her here to this point.
I absolute beg of you and i'll never ask for anything or a prayer for anything again if we can get Paizge and the other children the justice that they need. Vanessa NEEDS this. Paizge NEEDS this. This is a parents worst nightmare and this does happen to people. Even when you think this could never happen to you.
Please consider donating to help Vanessa and these children. They needs us. If you cant donate, please share this page and we need all the prayers we can get.
Thank you and much love,
