Hi , my name is Dave and i'm asking is there anybody out there that can help me please ? I am fighting a very difficult dilemma and major problem in my life.
Do i take care of my elderly disabled mother or the new love of my life , her two wonderful children and our new baby daughter ?
Unfortunately i am finding it impossible to do both. I am currently living in England and i am full time caring for my elderly disabled mother who has suffered and been fighting various forms of cancer most of her life and i was also caring for my disabled father until sadly his recent passing.Because of commitments i am unable to go out to work.
My partner is living in Thailand looking after her two children , Dee her 6 year old son Dell her 5 year old daughter and our new daughter of almost 5 months Rose Eddy. Aswell as our children she also looks after her sisters son Stem enabling her sister to work to take care of their mother and grandfather. It is impossible for me to get a visa for them to stay in the UK and my mother is not well enough to travel and live in Thailand. Ideally i would love us all to stay together but this just can not happen.
I respect and appreciate everything that my mother and father have done for me throughout my life , even more now after experiencing a child of my own. The last year as really brought it home to me how much my parents did for me , especially pre-birth and during my younger years that i can not remember. I more than owe it to be here for my mother and take care of her during her last years. My mother being as unselfish as ever is telling me i must go. I can not listen to her and bring myself to leave her alone. She needs me more than my new daughter does. At least my daughter is with her very loving mother. Without work i can not take care of my partner and the children , they have no income in Thailand. My carers and living allowance barely cover my mortgage in England . I do not drink , smoke or waste any money . I have been in severe financial hardship for a number of years . My previous partner and i had a very good business in Thailand which we lost due to the devastating Tsunami in Dec 2004 . I returned to England and built my property development company up , but when the financial crisis in Nov 2008 caused the crash of the banking system i lost everything again . I was legally robbed of more than half a million pounds. The next few years of hardship put a strain on my relationship with my then Thai partner and i ended up losing my house and everything , all i had worked long and hard for .
I met my new partner , we both had nothing but made each other very happy . When my father passed we decided to have a child. I had never given my father the Grandchild he had always wanted from me. The birth of our beautiful daughter was a wonderful and very proud moment for us parents and my mother was a thrilled and ecstatic Grandma .
Now unfortunately reality as hit home how hard it is to cope without being able to work. I am unable to go out to work at my previous profession mainly due to my caring commitments but also that i suffer from arthritis. The last two years i have been doing alot of studying and learning online. What i need and i'm asking for today please is your help in raising funds of six thousand pounds so that i can start an online business to work and earn money to take care of my new adopted family and to provide for their needs until God Bless my mother i can go live with them and bring the children up with the love and caring respect that i was always taught. I know this business will not make me rich but i know i can earn enough to take care of my families needs.
All i want to do is spend time with and take care of my aging disabled mother , while providing for my family who heart breakingly are so far away.Hopefully i have time in the future to spend with my daughter but right now at this moment in time i need to be here for my mother. Six thousand pounds will mean so much to us. I can do so so much with this amount . It truly would be life changing for us. It will mean the children can stay in the small house i rent for them , have proper meals , clothes , medical care ( Dell suffers severe asthma attacks and breathing problems ). They can stay in School and live with their mother .They will not have to return back to the poverty and horrendous living conditions of a small tin and wood shack in the village that sadly , unfortunately too many others have to endure . It will mean i can continue to care for my mother in my home and not be forced to put her in a care home so that i can go work away and maybe never see her again.
I know life can be cruel and there is alot of hardship in the world , but please if you can help me with my problem in life and donate towards my target it would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou for taking your time and caring nature to read this and other peoples problems on this site . I wish you good health and happiness and once again a big thankyou best regards Dave.
