I was in an abusive relationship for years..Domestic Violence is a terrible monster and my abusive husband made our lives a living hell! Finally I made up my mind to leave the horrible situation because I couldn’t take it anymore.. his drunken tirades, addiction to drugs, and endless fights was a nightmare that never ended. And my poor daughter's grades suffered because of lack of sleep.
To make this short, the last straw was when he broke our bedroom door when I refused to talk to him while he was drunk.. my daughter was terrified, crying and shaking in terror as she witnessed the blows and the bruises that her father inflicted upon me.. that day I looked at my daughter's eyes and I saw the fear I will never forget. I promise myself to never allow her to experience abuse again and promised her that we would leave. That’s when I decided to take my daughter and start a new life.
But where would we go? I was unemployed, and my family was millions of miles away from me.. I won a green card to live and work here in USA but had leave my family and friends behind. It has been the reason I stayed with him for so long. Did you know.. In the United states, 74% of female domestic violence victims have stayed with an abuser for economic reasons.. Once, that was just a statistic for me too. However, fate had another plan.
This time, I took a leap of faith and walked away despite the fear of the unknown. The feeling of relief combined with uncertainty crippled my every move. The only ray of hope in my life was my 8yr old daughter. She is the reason I had the courage to leave because I didn't want her to grow up thinking it's OK to stay in an abusive relationship. She managed to help me stay positive and she is my reason to work harder to provide a brighter future for her... free from abuse.
We were able to find a place to stay for couple of weeks temporarily and at the moment I have a promised job that I will be able to start in few weeks but I need to find a stable place for us and fix my car so I can get to work. That’s why I’m asking for your generous support. Given the chance, I want to re-build my life without the constant fear, abuse and violence.
Your selfless donations can help me cover the expenses of an apartment to move in (which includes deposit, first and last rent), fixing a car transmission, airplane ticket to get to state where I will work and food & necessities for the first month until I start getting paychecks. I am a hard-worker and I believe with your help, I will be able to have a fresh start.. my biggest dream is to make her life better than mine. According to the Mary Kay foundation it takes about six months for domestic violence victims to have the stability, the emotional and psychological well being to be able to take the next step toward the rest of their lives. We are one of them.. we are free from abuse and its time to move on and your support will help toward making first step into our new beginning.
WE finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.. Please Help Us Build A Future Filled With Hope & Promise!
Thanking you so much for supporting us and may God bless you.
