My name is Carlos Osorio and I am the father of three beautiful children; Angelisse (7), Jaden (4) and Dante (3). Even though today, I am a professional, I have gone through a lot to get to where I am right now. At the moment I find myself strong enough to help my kids.
A little over a year ago I had to make a decision in order to fulfill my family's financial needs. That decision brought me to the physical location where I write this from right now, Guayaquil-Ecuador. Things went sour and it's been a year since a breakup with my ex-wife. It was devastating for me at the time.
It took me many months to pick myself up back from the the ground up. This is not a story about me but my kids and the need that I have to bring them back here. Since the break up my kids have been exposed to so many forms of physical and mental abuse which I cannot prove to the authorities.
My ex-wife started dating a heroin addict who used to hit my two younger children. He had driven a car while intoxicated; doing so with violence and excess of speed. He has gotten intoxicated under the same roof where my children reside. From driving an SUV my ex is now driving an old and unreliable vehicle because she lost all her money supporting this junkie's habit. She now lives in a ghetto in Newark where they knock on her door every night to deliver her ration of weed.
She's jobless now and my kids are exposed to drugs, vioence and guns every single day. My daughter lost a whole year of going to school because her mother would never register her. I am not allowed to talk to my kids. My emails go unanswered and I really miss them wiht all my heart. I might not be the best dad in the world but I am certain that I can do a better job. There's where you can be of help. This is where you can make the dream of three children to come true. Last few words from my daughter's were, "Take us with you". I promised her that I would. Help me keep that promise.
I am a Software Engineer who is an author of some poetry and a fictional book. My first technical book is under development and it will be done shortly. I don't have much but at least I can share from the little I have. There are somethings that I know how to do that I can give you in exchange for your donation. It is as follows:
A copy of my technical book which is tiled (so far) Development Methodologies which currently has 374 pages and its under revision. $100.00
An autographed copy of my book "The Road to Happiness" $20.00
An informative website which will include: logo design, min page layout, basic SEO, your choice of HTML5 or Wordpress, 1 year hosting, 1 year domain rental, index page, 1 form, responsive design. $600.00
Like I said before, I am willing to work for my money. Contact me and we will make something happen. These are some of my skills:
Software Development Life Cycle Consulting

The following is the list of expenses so you can see how I came up with the figure that I need to reach by the end of March so my daughter can start school in April.
Plane tickets (4 x 800 each - proximate value) 3,200
1 1/2 deposit and month rent (based on 400/month) 1,000
3 beds (frames, spring box and mattresses) 1,000
Angelisse's school supplies 100
Angelisse's school books 150
Angelisse's school inscription fee 25
Angelisse's registration 183
Angelisse's tuition 292
Two dressers, hangers, garbage cans and stuff like that 360
Lawyer fees (yes, I know) 5,000
In case you wonder why the private school. My daughter only speaks English thus she needs to be at least for the first year in an institution where the staff is fully bilingual so my daughter can be understood. From the truly bilingual schools in this city that one gives you the best value. That price is based on the prices presented last year. It can be checked at this link: http://www.espiritusanto.edu.ec/garabatos/_documen...
When it comes to the rent... I believe that I can come up with the money to pay a 400 rent a month and feed my kids. The place where I am trying to secure a rental is in an OK part of the city... not fancy not the ghetto. It is just a place where I believe that my kids can be safe. a two bedroom apartment which is the smaleest place that I need costs about $400. You can make yourself an idea by checking this link:
I would like to end this note by thanking that superior being that helped me get to this website and that somehow brought YOU here. I would also like to THANK YOU; just by reading and sharing my story you are being helpful. My kids and I THANK YOU for your donation.
