Today, my daughter is moving for the tenth time this year, thanks to the Covid response of her University, poor quality housing & to put it lightly, an abusive roommate.
She is 19 years old & determined to overcome this nightmare.
She tirelessly helps others, has raised over a million dollars for those in need and collected food & other needs & served hundreds of homeless families within the state of CT. She is sought after, as a caring, effective leader and has organized more community events for the down trodden than I can recall, probably more than I am even aware of, because she is humble & too busy to tell me.
For Christmas, she told me she would like some peace of mind to live safely. That's all she wants.
She has secured another temporary housing arrangement but her life has been deeply impacted, in every way imaginable and she will need to move again. There's no longer a campus cafeteria at her fingertips either; it's no longer an option. She's unexpectedly on her own, forced into this.
She works three jobs, volunteers, studies for her double major and saved & bought her own car (mainly to deliver to the needy what she has collected). I can't tell you how much of an angel this kid is. Yeah, she's my daughter but I swear to you anyone who truly knows her would say the same. She is selfless to the core.
I am not asking for financial contributions as much I am hoping to bring awareness, to the fact, sometimes the givers need support. There's so much more going on behind the scenes, than we tend to realize. She could use some positivity, big-time.
As Mom, I feel obligated to bring awareness and naturally I want to protect & care for my daughter. I've done that & will always continue. I've been sick for 3 weeks, on top of my chronic conditions & am unallowed to physically help her now. That hurts. Alot.
It also hurts that she's been suffering in silence & the few calls for help have been ignored or backfired. As an older adult, I'm used to that but I'd really like her to know, there is always someone who cares & it's not just Mom.
Could you help me with that, please, even if in prayer only?
Thank you very much,
Dani M/ Mom
