We’ve been following “Little Sparrow’s” story for a while now, waiting for her situation to meet all of Give Her Wings’ vetting requirements. We have named her “Little Sparrow” because she is so exhausted, from life, and she reminds of us a sweet, precious bird — the kind that God has His eye on. But, she doesn’t know about her wings, yet, due to being bone-weary. It will take her a while. She has had to take on so much pressure to keep her four children moving forward and keep their new household afloat.
Sparrow tried to leave three years ago but found out she was pregnant with her fourth child and returned. Her ex husband has been extremely controlling, in general, but especially financially and verbally. He became particularly abusive during her pregnancy, when she was most vulnerable (as is often the case). She has told us that the abuse was more intense when she tried to get closer to God and grow stronger in Him. This is very typical for abusers. When the target of blame and abuse begins to show some independent thought, abusers grip their victim even tighter, making it near impossible for her to leave — which is why Little Sparrow is so incredibly brave. Until recently, this sweet mama was very isolated. She recently tried to change churches and attend a Bible Study. However, her ex husband followed and circumvented any relationship she may have had with them. We are doing all we can to be the Church to Sparrow, right now, so that she can see that Jesus still has His eye on her — and cares very, very much.
Little Sparrow’s primary concern now is being able to feed the children and get them some counseling.This mama is hurting, dear friends, and we need your help. All donations from February are going to help both of our precious February mamas. Will you help? We love this dear lady with the broken wings. Pray for her, please.
