As you know, for the past 10 years I have volunteered as a Political Advocate for the Extraterrestrial Issue. I have spoken less about my family life. I am a single Mother who raised three children alone without help from family or ex for 15 years. I speak little about them so we may have a private life. I have sent all three to college and each of them now live in their own apartment with roommates and have jobs and attend class.
My youngest who is 18 graduated high school last June. He surprised me by announcing two weeks later he was moving out. Naturally I cried for 3 solid days and on day 4 I emailed my friend and told her I needed to move and she said, you should come here.
I moved out of where we had lived for 17 years to save money as there was no longer need to stay there. As I weighed everything in the move I gave my 17 year old vehicle to my 18 year old even though he had not asked. I knew he would need this reliable transportation to get to his off campus job and be safe.
I went to live in Virginia with my friend in July, 2017. I continued to work and also had somewhat of a rest from constant worry and bills. I have lost weight, healed my injury and continued to write. I have new projects coming out eminently and I am going back to Galactic Roundtable as now the information will be helpful.
I am in Virginia and it is time for me to move to my forever home. I have found a rental in another state which is secluded and perfect for me to do my writing, advocacy and services. I have enough to go back to my storage locker, get what last few things I have and drive across the country. The thing I need help with is I no longer have my own car. Since I have moved my children are thriving. I did well by them. They told me to go on to my dream now. They spent the Holidays with the extended family. It was our first Christmas apart in over 20 years. They all told me I need to go on now and live my dream.
Please, I'm asking one more time for help. A few small donations will have me on my way. Please, I need to ask all of you to help with a small donation as I make my way to the next place where I will be safe alone.
A neighbor is offering me this vehicle for $2300. The rental I am going to was arranged by a friend of a friend and opens January 15th and I have lined up someone to drive with me at that time. So I am hoping to fulfill this quickly. I'll take a picture from my new porch to show you all. It is an opportune time to move because not everyone wants to do that in the cold and just following holidays, so more is available to chose from.
Thank you Everybody. You have my heart.
All My Love,
