Hi my name is Sonya I am a single stay at home mom of 3 wonderful boys. Anthony 10 George and Jordan 8 (yes they are twins) A few years ago I started noticing Jordan develop an eye roll it was slight but I found it odd, and he was having major behavior problems so I was going to take him to be checked for ADD or ADHD when my friend and neighbor sayid she thinks they are seizures. She works as an occupational therapist so I listened to her and had him checked and sure enough he was having seizures. So it's been a trying 3 years figuring out exactly what he has as I watch his seizures progress and him regress.He has been diagnosed with mental retardation a seizure disorder and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. His brothers have been fantastic through this all. Especially his twin, it was a little harder for my oldest because to him he see's a normal kid that just is a pain in the butt in his eyes. It wasn't untill the seizures progressed into drop seizures and his brother had to be hospitalized and have surgery for VNS implant when I think he realized the severity of his brothers dissorder. But anyhow he has made me proud to see I have raised a compassionate and loving son or sons really. That's a little history on us. Also aal the while I have been going through this and raising and supporting them with no help from the father. He isn't interested.
Well to my reason for contacting you is I really think these boys deserve some joy and to be shown their efforts and actions are appreciated and I would love to give them a nice Christmas, nothing to extravagant they are humble children and are aware we aren't financially able to keep up with the Jones' but I don't have the means to provide even the smallest of gifts!I am behind on ALL my bills, lights about to be shut off and my breaks are going out ect...it just never ends.(Enough of my pity potty, sorry about that) But we are grateful to have eachother. So I am searching the web and my community for assistance with Christmas help. Even the smallest of aid will help tremendously!!
Do you know of or provide any resources that may help me put a smile on the faces of three deserving young boys?
Thanks for your time.

Thanks again,
Sonya Abbott

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for life. So I'm sending fishing rods to all of these fine folks. How lucky that we live near the Pacific Ocean.

This thread has been unfortunately mistitled. It should say, "Post a Pic of Your Boobs, And if We Like it, We Might Adopt Your Family for Christmas."

I was wondering how can I love my family to get it I'm single mother of three children I am a full-time student I work do not give financial aid just recently moved into a new house because he found out my old house has mold growing in the ceiling Which cost me all of our Christmas money plus I really want this from my kids they truly deserve it removed into the neighborhood my son Brandon to school with the best president
I won't vote but I can say that my daughter is 14 and she received a partial scholarship last subcomponents cool for the state because of grade-point average going above and the on the call of duty to succeed and And my middle child just informed me that she has been trying her best to succeed because she will be going to Stanford and I believe her because my kids are great and we have overcome a lot I'm divorced because my husband rapped my daughter when she was four and Yes i put him in prison Because to me he was guilty until proven innocent and well he was not proven innocent and I'm very proud of her because she told me immediately but the day after she told me I love my kids they deserve better needless to say that shook things up for us but we're making it through with our heads held high Because she is not a victim she is a survivor and will be successful I tell them all the time. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and it's not what occurred Because you are either a victim or a survivor at victim will always remain victimize which is true in theory as well but a survivor survivor goes on and becomes The advocate a hero an inspiration for all the little girls out there that are still holding onto that secret Please contact me back at ch92139@Gmail.com

I don't want to sound like somebody who doesn't sympathize with your daughter's forcible rape, but if you hadn't married the guy, and if your daughter hadn't been prancing around in front of him like a little street-corner hussy, maybe she would have reached her fifth birthday without being branded forever as tarnished goods in the eyes of your community.
Good luck to you, and Merry Christmas.

I think, in this instance, you just need to be honest. Children are very perceptive when it comes to their parents trying to cover up their own shortcomings, and continuing to lie only exacerbates your family's dysfunction.

Simply tell the children, mommy couldn't keep her knees together, daddy wasn't willing to not ejaculate in mommy, so now we have a family too large for daddy to support. Yes, it was stupid and selfish, but many adults are that way, and your mommy and daddy are no different. Remind them to be thankful they weren't born in most other parts of the world. Not being born in Syria is their xmas gift from God. Show them some videos on Youtube of a few hundred slaughtered Syrians to drive the point home for them. After viewing, encourage them all to sing a verse of "Silent Night" together, to drive the point home that they're actually very very blessed to live in a welfare state, where consequences are other people's problems, and even though you're too broke to afford xmas presents, you still have enough money and free time to beg for xmas presents from strangers via your internet account.

It sure beats hiding in a desert ditch in Syria, or making iPhones for 16 hours a day in an assembly line, in China! Your children's xmas gift is living in a country still dominated by white people and good old american leisure that accompanies countries with the same blessing, and that's still a good thing! Just don't brag about it in mixed company, and Merry Xmas!

He's 3 months old, you moron. He's not going to remember squat about this xmas. He'll be happy with a shiny bottle cap, or a rubber band. Save your money, keep your knees together until you get a degree at whatever junior college, quit being an annoyance to responsible people this holiday, and merry xmas.
