"Shortly after the baby girl was born, her mother's pimp was locked up so she was out trying to make money to get him out of jail, they had this guy robbed murdered . Although she didn't murder the deceased man but she has the same time sentence because she set up the murder." - ST
My name is ST and this is my story and my two children's story.
I am a parent who takes care of two children that I eventually got from their mom. Their mother in order to take care of these two children after so many abandonment in her life, by her 'baby daddies' by her family became a prostitute in order to survive .
Their mother would leave the children in hotel rooms while working the streets, with her pimp.
At first I would keep the children at night in order to save them from all the abuses and horrors of the life of prostitution and crime, I would drop them off in the morning on my way to work at AT and T.
The children were seeing a lot, hve been through a lot. One Tuesday morning, I went to drop them off and she said she did not want the children anymore. I took the children, made arrangements that morning at a Day Care for the two children. I felt the need to take the children, for their safety, my heart was heavy knowing that they would be alone, hungry and abandoned in a hotel room if I didn't do anything to help.
I am glad I took the children in, because currently their mother is in prison serving 12 years for murder .
Shortly after the baby girl was born, her mother's pimp was locked up so she was out trying to make money to get him out of jail, they had this guy robbed murdered . Although she didn't murder the deceased man but she has the same time sentence because she set up the murder.
The children have no idea where their mother is. They ask a lot of questions, the older boy misses her and cries sometimes when asking questions about her. I have not told them why she's locked up I have taken them to visit her on visitation.
It is very hard on the little girl because she know me as mom so it's hard to even explain to her at 4 years old. I have to have mentoring set up for both kids to help them out. they are in need right now of clothing, bedding.
I just got a new place, w'ell be moving in. We have no furniture, we have nothing. I lost all of their toys, clothes bedding in storage so if anything is possible if the kids can be helped. They need a lot of help, we need a lot of help.
I am an aunt by marriage but when I divorced their mother's uncle I still cared for the children to make sure they were alright. I have health issues and trying to get on disability but I lost my job I had with ATandT for over 14years, I then lost my apartment, I lost my storage unit and all my belongings too because I couldn't pay for it. I lost everything I had. I put in for housing I just have to try and get beds and furniture all over again. I am hoping to try and come up with the money by next week to do my deposit and get the key so that can be s Christmas gift to myself.
The kids have been through a lot not knowing where their mom is. The 9 yr old boy will be 10 on the 31st , he is very intelligent and bright. The little girl is 4, she is very smart. I don't get any help from the family at all., but the Almighty God always make a way for us.
I have to thank Women Are Dreamers Too for their outreach so far, the children still have a long way to go, but I am teaching them to respect life, to live a productive life and I pray that with the time I have invested in them, they will lead productive lives. Please help me, I cannot do this alone, for the sake of the children, we need help
