“Turning Ashes into Beauty”

I’m putting this go fund me out there because I have had people ask me to put it back up. In my original post I said he would come after me. As most of you have seen he has sent my whole friends list very private documents wanting to share very private court documents about our son to the whole world. There is more to this story. His actions didn’t surprise me. I went back and read my original post. I was not happy with the way I shared my story. You see this isn’t about him anymore. This is about me. This is about my son. This is about my journey. This is about helping other women know their self worth. I welcome you to continue along side of me on this journey. I am in the process of rebuilding my life. I have been out of a job due to Covid. I also have my own business making wreaths and it is my passion! I am taking baby steps. I do deal with PTSD and anxiety. I am not too prideful to ask for help. My heart and my passion is to be able to help women get on their feet after they have been discarded by their abuser or escaped. These women end up walking away with nothing. I started an organization called “Operation Happy Door”. It’s my way of giving back in a small way that I can right now with what I have. You can check this out on my Facebook page, “Through The Tulips Designs”. I am also in the process of partnering with other organizations that help women get out of abusive relationship. I made a commitment to always take care of Drake to his birth mother when I adopted him. That’s what I intend on doing. I am a fighter. I am an overcomer. I am becoming stronger and stronger day by day. Thank you so much for taking time to read my story. I ask that you keep Drake and I in your prayers!  If you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated. God has an amazing calling on my life. With your help we can change the world. We can be the voice for the women who are afraid to speak out. “Turning Ashes into Beauty”
