My family of 3 has sacrificed everything to save the life of a very special little girl by relocating to Michigan.Help us get back home!

As a surrogate living in CT, I was pressured to abort the precious life I carried at the request of the couple that I had chosen to carry for. When I refused an abortion, I was threatened with legal action and great personal detriment for my choice. In order to ensure the safety of myself, my family, and the little person I was pregnant with, I gave up everything I had in CT and relocated to Michigan. I have had some amazing support in Michigan, and I am eternally grateful. We did it. We saved a little girl's life. S was born June 25th and has overcome the odds predicted during my pregnancy. She has been placed with an amazing adoptive family and will have a great life ahead of her. My job is done. Now, it is time for me to go home. Unfortunately, because I have not been receiving support from either the intended family or the adoptive family during all this, I have been living on very little financially I do not have a job or any income to go back to. Here is what the funds will be used for: $300- Insurance on my van from August-Feb $175- Registration for my van (it's expired currently) $200- gas to return to CT $100- lodging for one overnight stay during our trip back to CT $100- food and other incidentals while traveling $500- put towards security deposit on new apartment. I am usually a very independent person. I hate asking others for help, but it is only with the help of others that I have been able to do the things I have done thus far. At the encouraging of my family and friends, I am again asking for your help. My family and I need to go home; our lease here in Michigan is up as of August 17th and we have no resources or plans to stay in Michigan. We need to travel across the country and find a place to live back in Connecticut. Please help us to get home. Thank you ever so much!!

*Thank you to everyone who has donated, I am forever grateful for your generosity! 

I have decided to leave on this coming Friday, August 10th. This is before the end date of the fundraiser, so all funds donated here will go to the re-registration and insurance of my vehicle when I get back. Thank you so much for allowing me to be able to do this without added stress.  Someone has been flagging this page. For the record, with the conclusion of the adoption proceedings and the legal waivers signed by both parties, I have full disclosure abilities. I am free to relay any and all information about the surrogacy, including the names of the Intended Parents, Adoptive parents, circumstances, occurrences, and anything else that I see fit without fear of legal action. My lawyers have all confirmed this. GiveForward has confirmed that they will not be removing the page and that I am welcome to continue to fundraise here. *
