I have had domestic Violance before back in 2006 and it has been hard to by pass that. And I have another problem I have three cats they are fix and they are part of my family finding a shelter that except cats is hard and to be honest will not like to have to give them up. I try to give up so many times but I keep asking god for the help. I have not been feeling well with alot of pain in my legs and now with high blood pressure. With the stress at home and not able to find a place is just driving me crazy. I didnt know where to go so I decided to see if by chance there was a shelter in Lebanon so I get just get out the bad situation im in and just start fresh with my kids. I dont know what to do anymore. All I do is cry everyday asking god to help me and my kids. I am hoping you can help or know of anyone that can help me.
