The memory of losing a child can never be forgotten. A mother's joy is giving birth to her child and the expectation is that the child will outlive her. This is not always what happens. A dear friend of mine, Sandra had lost not one child but all 3 in a horrible school bus accident. Mother losing all 3 of her children to school bus accident sounds like a headline seen in a newspaper that I would read about someone else. This could not be happening to someone so dear to me, I thought. There were no warnings or preparation for such a tragedy. How do you handle it when you have to face such grief? Sandra is numb, trying to figure out what happens next.

Months later, the she receives notice that she will be receiving settlement checks for the loss of her children to reimburse funeral expenses, loss of society and mental anguish. No amount given to Sandra could ever replace the hugs, the kisses, the smiles, the memories or the “I love you’s” this mother now goes with out. Sandra doesn’t want the money, so she decides it should ALL get donated to charities and causes for other kids in her community that her children were so heavily involved with. You would think someone doing such a good deed for these kids of the community would not be punished, right?!?! WRONG!

Earlier this month, Sandra was summoned to a court trial where the father, her ex-husband, was suing her for the money she had received for the death of their children over a year ago. Now mind you, the father has not been a part of the children’s lives for over 5 years when the were still alive. Sandra kindly explained to the judge that the money was ALL donated to charities that she knows deep in her heart this is what her children would have wanted. Sandra provides all the documents to prove where the money had went to the judge. “It’s certainly tragic to put a value on a child’s life for some odd dollars,” she told the judge. “There’s no amount of money to compensate somebody for my loss. It doesn’t feel right to even put a figure on it, so I did what I know in my heart was right.”

Judge awarded the father to receive half of the money Sandra had received. Before leaving the courthouse, Sandra had to completely hand over a $15,000.00 check payable to the father which completely left her bank account empty. Sandra now also has to pay him a lump sum of money every month for 60 years to pay him off or until he passes, which ever comes first.

Sandra is devastated!

Sandra was blessed with a baby and new a family not long ago but now thanks to the judge’s ruling, Sandra and her husband now have no money to support their family. The holidays are right around the corner and the bills just keep piling up. Sandra and her family desperately need your help.
