A story thread...

I have a 15 year old daughter. Light of my life, but it's been years of turmoil and torment trying to be a dad to her. Some of it was my own fault, but most of it was not. Recently I was finally awarded emergency custody and will be getting full custody now
with the added bonus of also getting emergency custody of her two younger siblings who I did not biologically make but will love just the same as if I did. These children were living in a rough spot, and I'm happy they didn't have to get split up and now have a safe place to
rest their heads at with my girlfriend and I. We already had two in the house, and my new baby is supposed to be born on or around January 1st. More blessings! We are also looking in to adopting the two younger one that we got emergency custody of. If you're doing the math
with the birth of my newest child, that makes 6 kids in the house, and suprise, my daughter, who was running freely is also pregnant. So 2 months after my child is born, I will be a grandpa. That's 7 in the house.


We did not expect to add 4 new additions to our 2 bedroom
apartment but are working like hell to make sure we can get a bigger place as the state requires a certain amount of square footage per child for adoption and the likes. The state will have to kill me or put me in jail to have those children returned to the state or how they
were living before we picked them up. Recently, I started a small fundraiser because we could surely use a hand up to get started and I had to drop my ego and admit that to myself. My friends and followers have been gracious enough to get us halfway to our goal. I am truly
humbled. If anyone would be interested in helping out our little (big) family I would be forever grateful. I'll drop the link in the first comment at the end of this post.

I truly appreciate you guys, and thank you for all of the support you have shown me over the years.
If like, everyone here could throw 2 bucks at me, we could make these kids dreams come true. Lol, but for real. I mean it. Thanks again guy.
Also, if you do contribute, please send me a PM with your name and address so I can send you a thank you card from our little family. If you want to stay anonymous from me on here, that's ok too, but I wouod really love to send you something.
I think a lot of people are not reading the whole thing. Haha
We also have venmo if you hate PayPal.
