This is Tom and Jo Holmes' Daughter
Hello, my name is Angela but everyone calls me Angie. For years I supported my common-law husband as a stay-at-home mother of three, so he could attend school and get a decent job. We were a couple for 12 years but after suffering physical, verbal, and emotional abuse from him in recent years, I decided to flee to my parents’ home in a nearby city with our three children; six, five, and one years old. Before I could settle them into the relative safety of their new environment and enroll them in school the unthinkable happened.
My abusive partner had given a one-sided story to a judge who signed a custody order against me. My efforts to keep me and the children safe seemed to end just a few days ago, after surrendering the children to their father. This left me without my children, without a job or transportation, and without many of my belongings beyond the few things I had escaped with, having attended primarily to my children’s needs.
However, I have much more than a change of clothes and my blind, 10 year old Yorky. I have hope and faith in my family, my friends, my God, and everyone who has shown me compassion over the years. This kindness without condition has allowed me to grow into the stable and caring mother that I am, so I cannot give up without a fight.
Please help my children find their way back to their mother through the court system and to get a fresh start by helping me fund the legal battle which I have been forced into. Any donation no matter the amount is considered a blessing and increases my determination to succeed. Thank you so much for backing my struggle to protect Charlie, Grace and Lincoln !
