BR teacher adopts student - then starts GoFundMe
Not sure where I stand on this. 24 year old single female elementary school teacher adopts not one but two boys and then realizes she can’t pay for their education. Well no shite. Young teachers can barely support themselves.

quote:

Chelsea Haley was teaching at a Baton Rouge elementary school in 2015 when, she says, God told her in a dream she was destined to adopt one of her most difficult students. She laughed, she told CNN in a story posted this week on the news network's website.

But that moment was the first in a chain of events that led Haley, 24 at the time, to become a single parent to Jerome Robinson, 12, and his younger brother, Jace..

LINK
She is trying to raise $50,000 on GoFundMe.
quote:

I've been super hesitant to accept money because I am a pretty independent person, but I am reading about pride in my Bible Study currently and it has made me realize that "performance and achievement" keep us distant from God. I can't do it alone. I need to put pride aside and make decisions for my boys with the community God has given us. Any and all money will go straight to getting Jace back to his preschool in the Fall and the remainder immediately to a college savings account for both boys.

I cannot even count the number of nights I have laid in my bed and shed tears (like, bawling, for real) to God to provide relief and financial support for my boys. For those of you who know me, you know all I have goes to my boys. Heck, I wear the same three pairs of shoes for every occasion. .

Why does she have to pay for their education? We talking about notebooks and lunch?

I'd rather give to a Go Fund Me like this rather than some of the ridiculous ones I've seen. I saw one for honeymoon funding the other day. GTFOH.

How was she able to adopt if she couldn’t prove she was financially able to do so?

Will it be considered incest, when the teacher gets arrested?

My thought as well. She's now a single mom of 2 making $40k/year without supplemental child support

That's some bad milk, pistachios or a fever. Good luck finding some dude that's going to marry your butt now that you have two brown kids to feed at 24.

She must be out her mind. At 24, I was making a cool 55K and spending my weekends at that ridiculous club that used to be on 3rd street. One with a bunch of Jersey Shore looking buffoons.

My approach to charity - I take care of me and my own - first - so no one else has to. If I have leftovers, then I can be generous.

Sounds like Ole Girl's mouth is writing checks (to feel good about herself) her cushy, "summer's off" teaching job cannot cash.
