The BIG move

I know this is Go-Fund-Me but this case is more like Go-Fund-Us, us being my family. I’m a single dad of 2 teenage boys. The quick backstory is I adopted my 2 youngest nephews out of the foster system when they were 2 & 4…now 16 & 18. My oldest falls under the Autistic spectrum and just graduated HS this year. I share the graduation year for I will be graduating with honors while obtaining my Bachelor’s degree. A couple years ago I lost my job after my vehicle died. It was not a job that allowed me to save anything. I knew I must finish my bachelor’s degree and make a better life for my family…so I did. Now we are in to bigger and better things. We will be relocating to California (Berkeley I where my school is located) while I obtain my master’s degree. Joshua will go to a community college and Dakota will finish HS (a sophomore in the fall). We have a vision for the move we just need the funds to make it happen. I have done the math and looks like we will need to raise $7500 here to make it happen. That will cover the cost of the actual move (truck/gas/ etc.) as well the cost of moving into a place (1st/deposits/utilities/etc.). After the Pulse Nightclub tragedy here in Orlando I knew there is no time to waste in life. When you know something needs to happen you need to do it now and not put life on hold. I know this move is what is best for us as a family as well as individuals. This is a time sensitive issue being school starts in August for Joshua and myself and we have to be out of current home near Orlando in August as well. If there is anything you can do to help us in this time of need it would be such a blessing!
