The Family & Friends of Amy Bates(Ross) are uniting to fight justice against hard working mothers. Please show your support. Thank you!

This is a fundraiser to help support a once stay at home mom of 11 years, who is now fighting to to not only get custody back to no less than 50/50.
I have been at this struggle for 3+ years. I realized my mistakes in this and because I did not have value enough for myself. I allowed myself to be taken advantage of.
I am now realizing that there is no 'justice' unless you poses the money (which I don't). My ex (or soon to be final) husband is a successful business owner. He makes more in one month than I make in a year and yet still has come after me for child support, which the judge granted him. Almost $400 a month I am required to pay. We have 2 homes, he was awarded the larger and the other was forced to be sold. Even after I asked the judge to postpone sale until the children where 18. This way they had home they both knew and have grown up in. Then we can sell the houses after they were 18. Instead the judge granted my ex one house and me nothing other than to give him money for the negative equity in the house he was awarded.
I can go on for pages about how bad things have been. I have been blessed by the most wonderful support group I could ever ask for. For this, I know I have been blessed.
The one thing I don't have is the money to find justice and for not just me but my 2 beautiful boys that have been put in the middle by my ex and my biological mother.
Yes, my 'mother'. The woman that got on the witness stand and testified against me in support of my abusive husband. He has called me every name in the book but it still doesn't hurt as much as having your own mother lie about you on the stand.
So I ask for support in me fighting for justice and protecting my boys from an unfortunate situation that they didn't ask for.
My sincerest thanks!!
