Lukas Recovery Fund

Due to our pending court case, I will not be giving details about who committed this crime towards my son and myself. But I will be sharing our story with you and asking for your prayers through this time for us. A little over a week ago, my son, Luke, and I were with a trusted person whom we are very close to and I asked this person to put Lukas to sleep (which was not unusual). I took a bath due to feeling ill from recovering from COVID and returned to hearing my baby cry, seeing him spit up blood, and he was shaking. He had a bloody nose, swollen face, and was bruised from head to toe. I also had several items thrown at me and bruises on the right side of my body from this. I called the police and immediately we were rushed to the emergency room where we were both seen. I sent my older children with my sister and her boyfriend to go to my grandma’s house so they could be safe. Between this event and now, I have been flooded with horrible anxieties and worries. I have told our story (in much more depth and detail) to so many individuals who has visited us at our (new- as we moved in with my grandma) home. To doctors at follow up appointments and to strangers who had the nerve to ask me why my baby was covered in bruises at the store. I can’t begin to tell you how scary it is to feel helpless and fear for your child’s life without knowing the outcome. I was urged by a few close family friend’s to make this as my mom asked me what she could do to help and I just looked her and said I wanted to see everyone smile again. I have taken time off of work to be close with my family throughout this challenging and emotional time and hope to take my kids on a getaway to Disney world in Florida in an attempt to just forget about everything for a while and enjoy our time together at the happiest place on earth. Any extra money that is raised will be used for attorney fees or to purchase groceries/household items while I stay with my family. We are hopeful and asking for prayers during this time. Thank you so much for thinking about us and being encouraging and uplifting. God bless you all
