My name is Alex Garner. I am an 18 year old single mom of a 3 month
old, Gracelynn Garner. I had Gracelynn on March 22, 2012. She was
not breathing when she was born, the umbilical cord was wrapped
around her neck twice. The had resecitated her, praise God! When
she started breathing her heart rate was unsafely high. She was
also taken to the NICU for 2 and a half weeks. She got to come home
on Easter:). She was sent home on high blood pressure medicine, has
to go get her blood pressure taken once a week, and kidney
specialist dr appointments 30 minutes away.
I have just left an abusive relationship and because of him i don't
have anything. He was not the father of little Gracie, but he
controlled us both. I was not able to have a job, he would not
allow me to. I left him May 25th, and now i have a job that pays
decent. But, the problem i have is i dont have reliable
transportation, and where i live they don't have public
transportatioin. My goals are to get a car, be able to get back and
forth to work and doctors appointments, get my GED, get my own
place for Gracie and I, and be able to start college in the fall.
The only thing holding me back is not having a car. It would be an
answer to my prayers to get a car, one that is baby safe. I just
want to give my baby girl the life she deserves. My ambitions may
be a little out there for the amount of time i have set, but i have
to start somewhere. So i am desperately asking for a car. If anyone
could please, it would be very much appreciated!
