Please Help Ill, Isolated Single Mom w/ Son Escape to a Supportive Community!

Dear Wonderful People:

  I am a single mother who has fallen on *very* hard times. I suffer from accute Bipolar II Disorder and have struggled all my life with this (esp. with being misdiagnosed and on the wrong medications almost my whole life until only now, in my 30’s). Simple things like finishing college, keeping a job, starting a career, or putting roots down anywhere have always been elusive obstacles for me, but now, it’s really “all coming down.” I am living in a dead-end little town in Upstate NY and I am now on Welfare. I have lost everything, from the house I owned to my beloved car. I feel like a prisoner here; I am socially and spiritually isolated and have zero sense of community or connection; save a couple friends whom I rarely see.

And (I am incredibly ashamed to admit), I had my one-year-old baby taken from me just over a year ago by CPS and have been found guilty of neglect, all because upon asking my neighbor if he would simply stay with my sleeping baby while I ran to the post office for a very quick and urgent errand (to which he agreed and THOROUGHLY reassured me he could “handle it”), he instead called the police, who called CPS, who railroaded and terrorized me. I did not know my rights, and I let them in, thinking I had nothing to hide and had done nothing wrong. They utterly and violently broke me down emotionally and then took away my child, and have been fiercely working to rip my child away from me for good ever since (please research Child Services and all their wrongdoings to good families to get an idea of their terror tactics in “legal kidnapping,” as even told by former CPS workers on YouTube). Despite my most highly dedicated efforts to learn about the legal system and get him back, I have failed so far. I have since fallen into the deepest depression I have ever been in, with it intensifying as time goes on. I am thoroughly traumatized at all the horrific things CPS has done to me and my family, including only giving me AN HOUR, supervised, visitation a week under a very cruel woman, who mercilessly harasses and criticizes every single thing I do, or don’t do (despite the fact that I have been babysitting since I was 12, and was a very satisfactory live-in nanny for young children TWICE)! My court-appointed lawyer (of course) not only never advocated for me, but she even actively hindered my case, so I fired her, finding out for sure that she was negligent and actively pitting me against my own witness. I finally got another, outside lawyer, but things had already gone too far and I am now stuck in utter hell, still barely clinging on to my sanity as I fight to get my life and my child back. This system is sick and cruel and it is tearing me to pieces. This thing has snowballed into the worst nightmare of my life, ranking with losing both my dearest Brother and then Mother within a day of each other back in 2007. 

    If and when I, PLEASE G-D, get my child back, I am determined to move us immediately to a tight-knit observant Jewish community FAR away where a couple of friends who live there said they’d help get us set up. I am also desperately looking for an observant Jewish family to adopt him in the worst-case scenario of my losing custody of him legally if the prosecution wins.

    I am now utterly destitute and unable to functionally work right now, due to all the appointments I am forced to go to as well as my literally crippling depression. I am alone and struggling to just stay above water and fight to get my son back. 

    We desperately need your help! I am urgently trying to scrape some money together for a used car so that I can get around, take care of simple errands, and be able to soon escape to a supportive and wholesome Jewish community where I desperately want to raise and educate my son in a proper Torah lifestyle and create a meaningful, peaceful life. We need help to get a very modest place to live, until I can find work there.

    Please help me and my baby to live a true Life and be able to breathe again. Through my meager temporary government assistance, whatever I can sell on eBay, or make with the odd job I can get here and there, my bills bite off almost all the approximately $181 a month I receive. After these things, there is incredibly little I can really save left. 

    Please help us to raise enough money just to get a functional car and a little to help us start over in a new, healthy, and loving community! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

(P.S.- I will personally davven- pray- for anyone who needs a refuah shelemah- prayer for a speedy recovery- / prayer for parnassah- help with finances- / or in honor of a loved one! :) 

Also- PLEASE NOTE that if you donate to the website after your donation to us, what you donate to them will be SUBTRACTED from your donation to us!)
