What is more unique about my story is what I've learned about the power of giving and asking for support. I've spent my adult life investing in building community -- as a teacher, a friend, and a parent. I've watched other women I know face the humbling moment of needing to ask for help, and I've offered my thoughts, my money, my heart, and my commitment to those who have needed it.
Now I'm the person who needs it.
The legal fees associated with leaving my marriage have passed the $20k mark. My ex will not leave the home and will not agree to any plan that will move our separation forward. I started this process believing in a peaceful ending and have found myself trapped in a battle that's about money more than my children's well being.
Meeting my goal would help me pay my legal debt and create security for myself and my children. Without it, I'm likely to lose our home. Thank you for anything you can do to help us move forward.
