Clay county Children's Division currently has a 2 year old boy in custody due that is ready to go home to his mother!!
Mom immigrated to the United States from a third world country and got into a domestic violence situation with people trying to take advantage of her. While receiving help for her situation everything she owned was stolen. Mom is doing amazing and is ready for her child to go home. The only thing preventing her from having her son is her lack of material objects. Mom just got herself an apartment and only owns 4 end tables and a lamp. Mom does have a job, but it will take her quite a while to save money to get necessity items.
Prior to being in America this mom carried her child across a country to get into America through political asylum. Her son is incredibly bonded to her and is devastated and doesn't understand why he cannot go home with her. The child loves the color red!
The other supplies that are needed include sippy cups, bath towels, and bathroom supplies including for potty training (toilet seat, shampoo, toys, brush, etc.).
This family does not speak English, and will need things that have directions in Spanish if the items have directions.
