I am asking for cards/notes/letters of encouragement. [UPDATE FROM ADMINS: Requested Gift cards have been TAKEN, but notes and letters request is still open!!]

I am a single mom who has been through an excruciating custody battle over the last 3 years with my abusive narcissistic ex. In May, because I could not afford any more attorney fees, I was forced to settle the case by giving him 50/50 physical custody and joint legal custody, with him having educational and religious decision-making. Two months later, knowing I could not afford to go to court again, he decided to buy a house an hour away from where we lived and then enrolled her in school 1 mile from his new house. Now, I have to drive her to school and back (1 hour each way) with no help from him, and my gas budget has quadrupled. My only option to change this is going back to court.

I thought after 3 years, if I just gave him what he wanted, all the chaos and bullying would stop. But it seems never-ending, and I’ve lost friends, jobs, and even some family over it. I feel so defeated. I could really use that village everyone talks about right now. I really just need some support and encouragement more than anything. Thank you for reading. ❤️❤️

    Hi Beth!

    Nice name! ;) Thank you so much for your kind words. They truly mean so much to me.

    You are so right, and unfortunately, family court seems to lean towards parental rights rather than children's rights these days. It is such a struggle, but being this kind, thoughtful, generous little girl's mama is worth every ounce of struggle.

    Thank you again for your words and your prayers. Grateful does not even begin to describe how I am feeling. On behalf of my daughter, Annabelle Grace and I, thank you, thank you, thank you, Beth. Please know that you have made a huge difference in my life today.

  • Another Beth!
    Sending you virtual hugs -- such a hard journey you've had! I'm a single mom, too, and I'd like to think that all parents operate from a "what's best for the child" stance, but sadly, that's not always true. You are doing your best and loving your daughter so well. I hope that you continue to find strength in the hardship and I will pray for a change in your ex to see the error of his ways and do what's best for your child. Hang in there, mama!

    dear beth,
    i'm in charleston, single mom, but my custody agreement was much easier to manage than yours. I'm so sorry for what you're going through. If you have a CashApp, I would happily send you $50 directly. I could do paypal also if you prefer.
