I have never done anything like this before and not quite sure how or if it will work but anything is worth a go to put smiles back on the girls faces and start to rebuild our lives with a positive memory sp please read my story and any help will be greatly appreciated.
I am a single mother to two beautiful girls aged 12 and 6. We've not had the easiest of times but we get through it and as long as we are happy and healthy that is all that matters.
At the end of last year i met someone who i trusted and started a relationship very quickly it turned sour and has taken up until a month ago to get away from him. I was threatened with my life on a daily basis and was told if i ever left him not only would he end my life but he would get my family too. I've endured months of horrific abuse physically and mentally, i tried my hardest to keep it from the girls but when we had to leave our own home due to him threatening to kill us it was difficult. Luckily they sent him to prison but unfortunately that wont be forever.
The girls have had it tough and as a mother i just want to give them something to let them forget all the badness and start anew with good positive memories. With all this going on things have been tough mentally, physically and financially so i am unable to do much. I would like to be able to take them on a holiday where we know for a week or two we will be safe and have nothing to worry about then bring our memories and posiitive minds back with us and continue it.
At times i didn't even think i would make it to the end of the day with my life so being able to sit here and write this now really is a blessing.
thank you so much for reading my story and for any help you have offered.
