In 2012, my husband suffered from a nervous breakdown. During this period he quit his job annd decided that he wanted to immigrate to America, leaving behind myself, 3 young kids and a 6 day old newborn baby. I tried to talk him out of it as he had no work lined up and his plan was spur of the
moment and had not been well thought out.
However, 6 days after giving birth my husband made the move. He has remained in regular contact with myself and the kids but he has been unable to offer us any financial assistance. As such i have been struggling to raise my 4 kids as a single parent whilst at the same time trying to complete my legal studies which i had already commenced before he left.
I know many would say that i should be angry and upset about the situation my husband has left me in, but i mostly feel sorry for my kids. As far as they're concerned their dad is a hero and they miss him greatly.
I would like to appeal for funds in order to raise enough money so that i can take the children over to America to see their dad. Its been 2 years since they were last able to see him and i know my eldest boy who is now 9 carries alot of confusion and pain.
I would also love the opportunity to reunite my family and to be given the chance to sit down and make important decisions about our family and marraige face to face. My youngest child last saw het dad when she was 6 days old and she is now walking and talking.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and i hope you can help me put a smile back on my childrens faces.
