Local Student Needs Help

Brandon Brown, a happy student of PS/MS 183Q is facing a hardship and needs help. Brown’s father was deported to Dominica, West Indies on December 12th, 2012. Brown was without his dad lonely and afraid like many individuals affected by Hurricane Sandy.”

“My son has never stopped crying over his dad since his departure in the midst of Hurricane Sandy.

“Last year, he was silently suffering academically. All I can do is hold him in my arms and pray together,” Brown’s mother, Sharnetha Roberson said.

Roberson says she is a loving, caring and hardworking single mother who volunteers at PS/MS 183Q and strives each day to find out the reason behind the deportation of Brown’s father.

“Looking at the pictures of them together makes him cry and it hurts me as a mother that I can’t give my son any answers at this time. Today, my son is in therapy at New Horizon which is conveniently located within PS/MS 183Q school to help him to heal from his emotional wounds that this sudden dramatic ordeal has placed upon him,” Roberson said.

Roberson is hoping to take her son on a trip to Dominica in hopes that it will bring a smile to his face. However she needs some help.

The trip, which would include passport fees and plane tickets, would cost $2,000. Roberson is hoping for any help possible. “Immigration destroys families. Please don’t allow another family to be destroyed,” Roberson said. “I ask you all to please find it in your heart to help my son and me see his father in Dominica and give my baby his dream.”
