Moving costs for Keri

I have decided it's better to tell my story, I greatly appreciate Young-wha for setting this GoFundMe up for me...but as my story is a bit personal I will share. I have been in Spokane since I was 8. There are nothing but bad memories for me here. I experienced blatant racism growing up in school, and in public. I did not have a healthy raising by my adopted parents..I have endured the effects... mostly psychological of abuse and control. I have had no support here and done it all on my own. I have an alcoholic ex-husband who lives here and causes constant drama to me and my children...he does not pay child support nor has he helped me parent our children.  I have always wanted to get out of Spokane and move somewhere else. I have never been one to ask for help...joining the KAD group has been simply life changing. I was able to find out my DNA ,cousins, meet new friends that truly relate to me. I was able to go to Seattle this last summer and meet the KAD group over there as well as a 1st "blood related" family member. I definitely felt not alone and a close connection with them all. I also love the other side of the state as there is a strong asian presence, I feel I blend in. I do not have money to move because I have struggled as a single mother of 4 children to work, take care of them all and deal with my anxiety/ depression issues. I have always done my best and put my children first. I will need help to survive for a bit as I will basically be homeless until I find  housing  that will take my housing assistance. Your help would be a blessing because it would help give me a new start with my children, somewhere where I would have a family, support and not feel all alone. I want a healthy change for both me and my kids because I am tired of the sadness, unhappiness and drama I deal with here. I want to be close and a part of my KAD family that I have discovered over on the Western side of the state. I want to be more productive, successful and happy...
