Fuller documented her feelings in a long essay posted online recently after losing custody of her 16-month old daughter, Cai Bridges, stating:
Every day that passes without my daughter feels like eternity. My side has not been shared up to this point and rumors that I was a bad mother or receiving $7k/month child support or asking for $15k were distressing me; none of which are factual.
A judge denied Fuller’s motion for a new trial in her custody case just last week (click HERE if you missed that). Now the embattled baby mama is seeking the public’s support to fund her continuing legal battle with the creation of a new GoFundMe account to get her baby back.
Details about Fuller’s new crowdfunding campaign below…
Fuller plans to file an appeal against the custody ruling after the judge denied her motion for a new trial on April 9th, but appeal attorneys cost money… which Fuller doesn’t have much of after losing custody of her bankroll.
She says she’s back to working full time, but her income isn’t enough to cover her expenses and legal bills.
I was hesitant to set up a GoFundMe page but since my story ran I’ve received overwhelmingly supportive feedback from women and mothers across the country who have offered assistance and want to help with launching my organization.
So instead of wallowing in self-pity, Fuller decided to start a GoFundMe campaign seeking $7,000 to assist in bringing Cai home as well as fund a nonprofit organization for low income mothers. So far she’s raised $780.00.
My experience in the Atlanta court system fighting for custody of my daughter has almost destroyed me, but I won’t let that happen. I also never want another woman to feel as alone and hunted as I’ve felt throughout this process, so I am starting a foundation for mothers who are in similar situations. I want to provide support for women who are pregnant and aren’t getting any help from the father of their child. I also plan to provide resources that will educate women on how to have a safe and healthy pregnancy while under seemingly insurmountable stress. My organization will guide low-income mothers to financial assistance as well. When this journey first started, I was only advocating for myself, now I feel compelled to provide a voice for the voiceless. I am not giving up my daughter without a fight. Infants should not be taken from their birth mothers when they are fit and able to provide for them.
Donations will go towards setting up my foundation, offering resources and also helping to bring my own daughter home.
I sincerely appreciate you all.
With all my love, Tamika
