Hello. I have been doing some research via internet trying to locate a site to adopt my children for the holiday. I am a single mother of 6. On Thanksgiving 2012 I became a victim of domestic violence. I reported my abuser to the local authorities. On November 25 th 2012 my abuser had been staying two houses away at his sisters house. I called the police again after realizing my abuser stole some things out of my home, and also due to his sister threatening to blow up my home with me and my children in it. On that day my abuser was put into hand cuffs and taken away.Once he was taken away I was then threatened by his sister that she would get someone to come to my home. I immediately informed the authorities that I feared for the safety of my family. Nothing was done. On November 27 2013 as we were just winding down for the night two masked men came through my back door. One came into y room and held me at gun point while the other tall dark figure ran past my room upstairs to my children. We were all held at gun point. They were demanding money. Apparently they knew about a lawsuit and the exact dollar amount that only my abuser had knowledge of. When I told them I didnt have any money the tall robber yelled take one of these kids and kill them. They grabbed my 9 year old and forced him to his feet. They shoved his head down, cocked the pistol, and put it to the back of his head. Thank God they let him go but immediately became frustrated and pistol whipped me twice in front of my kids. I had no idea I was bleeding until the t.v. shinned on my 7 year old daughters feet and I noticed a pool of blood on the floor and on her legs. They threatened to kidnap my 13 year old daughter because "she looked smart enough to use the atm". They forced two of my boys to participate in the robbery. They stole my boys Playstation 3 with all the accessories and games, a brand new professional video camera that my boys used to make high def videos and editing. They also stole my daughters kindle fire, WII with games and all the accessories, her HTC cell phone. They stole my HTC phone as well as my atm card that they forced me at gun point to allow them to change the pin number. These animals even went as far to rip my house phone out the wall and steal the keys to my rental. We had to move out of our beautiful home immediately due to knowing the sister and my abuser sent these people to my home and they told us they would be back if I called the police. When we moved out we immediately became homeless. We stayed in domestic violence shelters but were constantly placed in areas where my abuser was very well known and very well connected.Christmas of 2012 we were homeless driving around looking at houses that were decorated for the holidays crying trying to figure out what do we do next.This robbery has left me in debt with Hertz for $3000 due to using this vehicle to get us out of State to safety. We lost all of our furniture. My children have lost every toy that they had and their teddy bears that they would sleep with at night. We have been sleeping on the floor in our apartment since May 2013 because I cannot afford beds. We have nothing. Its going to break my childrens heart even more to know that there will be no Christmas this year. My little girl is only 8 and still believes in Santa. What am I supposed to tell her? PLease, if there is someone out there that can help my family please contact me at [email protected]

I'm a single mother of 3 incredible kids. Its been six months that we've been on our own. Its considerably harder than I thought being a single mom, but worth every minute of it compared to what we've indured with their abusive father the past few years. Having a peaceful Christmas is going to be a treat in its self.Still staying with friends but close to getting our own place soon. One thing at a time, right? I'm really just wanting to give my kids a Christmas that they'll remember filled with happy memories, and even just one great present each that they really want(and deserve as well). My girls are 17 and 18, while my son is age 12. Would appreciate any help or ideas to make this a great "starting fresh" Christmas. Thank you for your time and have YOURSELF a Very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.

I am a single mom with boys ages 11 and 13. I lost my job 2 years ago because my sons were ill all the time. I have been unemployed since although I diligently looked for work. We became homeless due to this and it has been 13 months now. I have no money for my boys for Christmas this year and we are in a homeless shelter. I will be starting a new job on Jan. 6. My oldest son is Shawn and he loves video games for an xbox or a ds lite, likes Pokemon too. He would love to have a laptop or an MP3 player with headphones. My youngest is Shane and he loves Harry Potter and wants the Hogwart's Chess set and the locket Hallcrux. He also likes video games too. They both need new shoes as both of the bottoms of their shoes are torn open. Shawn wears men's size 14 shoes and Shane wears men's size 8 shoes. When we get a place of our own, they both would like to have bicycles too as theirs had been stolen. Shane also likes skateboards. If anyone can help, you would make 2 boys very very happy. They are very sad with the thought they are not going to get anything for Christmas. They will be greatful for anything at this point in time. Last Christmas they did not get anything either and we are away from family. They have been real troopers through all of this nightmare and I really wish this on no one ever again. Merry Christmas
