For most of my life I have lived with a father who is an alcoholic. My mom just got her dream job, but she still needs to get back onto her feet. In order to give us what we need, she needs to be able to leave my father. Divorce costs a lot of money, and she doesn't want her kids to have to struggle and not do things that we want to do because of this decision. If you have more questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
