Ok, everything you; once loved or cared about is gone! Are you going to lay in bed and cry, while the rest of the world moves on without you? Sometimes, through our bad choices in life we become toxic to others and they decide to remove themselves from our lives to save their own sanity, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t love you anymore.
It just means, you need to focus on making better choices and rebuilding a lifestyle that others can accept. Start, by figuring out “WHO YOU TRULY ARE!” underneath the pain and shame, that covers your heart like a thick winter coat. You have you to peel back each layer of guilt, in order to find the frightened child that you abandoned so long ago.
Now, you will need to make two notebooks with simple section dividers and papers. Make each each notebook a different color and keep them near your sitting area, because you will be writing in them a lot. Look in your kitchen cabinet for a simple coffee cup to place a couple pens in, just in case you have a thought and you need to find a pen quickly.
Start, by setting daily goals in one notebook like: remembering to take your medicine or cleaning your house. Write stuff that can be achieved from the time that the sun rises in the morning until the sun sets in the evening. Next, you will create weekly goals, monthly goals, and yearly goals. Then, use your second notebook to begin in journaling your thoughts like in a journal or diary.
Unfortunately, you have to accept that your life has violently changed and that it will never be the same as it was. Your spouse or children may never comeback, but if you feel lonely and depressed all the time. Look into adopting a pet from a local shelter that needs you, but are you a cat or a dog person. Yes, there is a major difference, since a cat requires little care and a dog requires constant supervision.
However, you must be a responsible person to own a pet, because they are like children and do require daily care. You can go to an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or (NA) Narcotic Anonymous meetings or church, in order to find friends that will support you on your journey to recovery. Don’t discouraged if you fail, because your loved one will notice that you are at least out there trying to change.
Whatever you do, just do ii! The hardest step is the first one and each step gets easier as long as you are moving. Find out what your problem and seek treatment, while creating new friends and new places to hang out. Don’t go back to what broke you and don’t invite more drama into your life.

The Real Orphanage Home Desperately Needs:
The Real Orphanage Home is desperate need of people who can sponsor through a mission program. The orphanage cares for about twenty orphans, who have no one else. The man Kakande Muhamad and a few volunteers are all these children have right now. The orphanage has legal papers, but he has a few more obstacles to overcome which cost money. He needs rent money for home the children are living in Kampala, Uganda in Africa.
Hopefully, the children can find a mission program, which can help the man who has decided to love these children as his own and give them a home. He needs help with obtaining the children’s basic needs like: clothing, food, and personal needs. These children need help, so take a moment to ask your church, if they will consider helping this orphanage continue survivor and thriving. Take a moment to see if there are ways, in which you may be able to help these precious children.
I am Kakande Muhamad and I am a volunteer, who is running the Reallife Orphanage Home. I am a native thirty-two-year-old, who is currently caring for twenty children. Additionally, I am working with several volunteers to care for these lovely children. Some of these children have lost their parents in the war, some were abandoned, and others lost their parents to illnesses like HIV/AIDS. These children are vulnerable and need sponsors to get the daily food, and medications or school items.
Our Mission at the Orphanage
As volunteers our mission is to provide, love, support, and daily care for the vulnerable children in the slum communities near our orphanage. Our long term goal is to find each child a permanent home and someone to love them. Currently, we need sponsors that can help us keep the orphanage open, as well as help provide these children with their daily needs. We need food that will not perish like beans, maize, rice, and other foods that help nourish these precious children.
How I Began Helping These Special Kids
I was born and grew up in Bwaise neighborhood which is a slum, but during this time I saw many children die for many reasons. I have seen children thrown into water channels or drainage systems, which hurt me deeply, because these poor children died. Unfortunately, I have also seen other children living in old broken down houses and along the streets. These children would sleep wherever they could sleep and I wanted to do something to help the orphans in my own community.
After seriously soul searching, I decided to open an orphanage, which does not turn these vulnerable children and babies away. However, I need to have sponsors to help me keep the orphanage open and caring for these special children. We must pay house rent, as well as get the daily things children need like food and bathing supplies. The children’s sponsors will also help buy clothes, mosquito nets (Malaria Protection), medicine, and educational needs.
Meet Baby Hope
This little girl is fourteen-months-old and she is known as baby Hope. She is currently living at the Reallife Home Orphanage and no one knows who her parents are. Sadly, baby Hope was found late at night and she was lying curled up next to a toilet in a Kampala, Uganda neighborhood called Bwaise. This run down neighborhood is known for prostitution and sex workers. She was alone and desperately needed help, so the volunteers brought her to the orphanage, but at this time she doesn’t have a name.
Therefore, I have chosen to call her Baby Hope and the volunteers need help with someone to sponsor this beautiful little girl. As a sponsor, you will make sure she eats daily and gets medication when she is sick. Baby Hope deserves to be happy and cared for, even though she has had a rough start to life. She is now in the care of volunteers, who want to help her live a long happy yet full life.
Meet Simon Mugerwa
This is Simon Mugerwa and he is five-year-old boy, who is one of our special orphaned children. Unfortunately, Simon lost his father in 2014 and his mother could no longer care for this handsome little boy. He is a happy little boy, who has dreams of being a doctor, so he wants to get an education. However, he needs a sponsor that can help him realize his dream, due to the required school fees.
Simon loves to play with his friends at the orphanage, he loves the volunteers, and he enjoys riding his bicycle. Additionally, he loves watching cartoons and he is a very energetic little boy, who is full of love for everyone. Currently, he needs a sponsor that can help us get him into school, as well as helping with his daily needs like food and medication. Therefore take a moment to learn more about Simon and his friend baby Hope.
Any sponsors who may want to help our orphanage or sponsor a child, please feel free to contact me on my Facebook page Reallife Orphanage Home. We have limited internet contact at this time, so bear with us as we hope to grow and make a difference in the lives of these special children. We are hoping to build a website and other ways to help you learn more about our orphanage. The children and I send much love, peace, and light to you all. May God bless you.
Jacksonville, FL. /Feb. 9, 2016- For six months now, William “Ruben” Ebron and Lonna Lauramore Barton stayed silent about what had happened to the precious blue eyed, blonde hair toddler named Lonzie Barton. According to ActionNewsJax, this vibrant and adorable toddler lost his life on July 23, 2015, when he was reported missing by Mr. Ebron. Then, the boyfriend and mother began lying immediately and the continued lying for the next six months.
According to Jacksonville.com, the police said Mr. Ebron claimed that someone stole his orange Honda Civic with a black hood. He claimed that Lonzie Barton was left in the car, while he admitted that he was inside his apartment using drugs. According to Jacksonville.com, Ruben Ebron has also claimed that the five-year-old sister got out of the car and came inside the apartment, just before the car was allegedly stolen. Police immediately proved he was lying and he was arrested promptly and soon after Lonna Barton was also arrested for two counts of child neglect and lying to police.
However, six months later, we have learned that Lonna Barton has pleaded guilty in January 2016 to child neglect and lying to police. She was given up to a six years sentence and agreed to testify against Ruben Ebron at his trial. According to ActionNewsJax, Ruben began cooperating and led investigators to Lonzie’s body in the Bayard area and the investigator found the toddler under some tires. This innocent toddler won the hearts of the First Coast residents during the last six months.
Unfortunately, the six months that went by before he was found, has made it difficult for the medical examiner to determine this toddler’s cause or time of death. According to News4Jax, little Lonzie did have fractures and broken ribs that were mending, which points to Little Lonzie being abused. Ruben was able to enter a sweetheart plea deal for aggravated manslaughter and he was sentenced to twenty years in a federal prison.
Many of the residents of the First Coast community were stunned and angry with the plea deal he was given by District Attorney Angela Corey and other involved in this frustrating case. According to ActionNewsJax, Ruben pointed fingers at Lonna, because she put Lonzie in the bathtub and locked him in the bathroom. He admitted that they were having sexual relations in the other room, while Lonzie was drowning. According to ActionNewsJax, the couple found little Lonzie dead and they said that they panicked. No one has mentioned where the five-year-old sister was during little Lonzie’s death and her mom and boyfriend was having sexual relations.
Mr. Ebron said Lonna knew Lonzie was dead before she went to work at Wackos Gentleman’s Club. According to News4Jax, co-workers say that she acted as if nothing had happened, while working as a stripper or exotic entertainer that night. According to FCN, this adorable toddler deserved better than being thrown away like trash, which is what ultimately what happened to this adorable little boy. According to News4Jax, this toddler never made it to two-years-old, because the adults around him didn’t put the child first.
The adults could have called an ambulance and took whatever punishment would have been given to them for the drugs and child neglect. Instead, they just lied over and over about every detail of what happened to this toddler. However, according to WOKV, so far witnesses said Lonzie Barton had some type of head injury and that he looked pitiful right before he disappeared.
Therefore, the First Coast residents are not convinced that Ruben Ebron is telling the truth. Additionally, Lonna and Ruben both know what happen to this vibrant toddler, which he may have told the truth. Mr. Ebron may not have told the entire truth, because of the reports of Lonzie’s head injury.
If this was truly an accidental drowning, why did he throw little Lonzie away like he was just a piece of garbage? In addition, if Lonna Barton knew that her baby boy was truly dead; many First Coast residents wonder if she will face additional charges in this case. However, according to ActionNewsJax, currently, she is being in held Baker County on unrelated drug charges with Lonzie’s father Chris Barton. Many residents helped search for this beautiful toddler, actually believe there was no Justice for Lonzie Barton with the plea deals.
According to News4Jax, this precious toddler fell through the cracks and he paid with his life, because everyone in his life failed to help him…even his own drug addicted mother! Baby Lonzie should be celebrating his second birthday and enjoying life, but instead he is waiting to be laid to rest. The witnesses and the family members could have possibly saved his life with one phone call to the proper authorities. May little Lonzie Barton rest in peace, but those who let him suffer will have to live with what they didn’t do to help this precious little boy.
ActionNewsJax (2016) Ebron Points Finger at Lonzie Barton’s Mom in Her Son’s Death
Jacksonville, FL-Little Lonzie Barton have been missing for almost two months now, but the key suspects in his sudden disappearance are keeping their mouth shut. The suspects who police have arrested are William “Ruben” Ebron and his mother Lonna Lauramore Barton. According to Jacksonville.com, little Lonzie’s mother, Lonna has plead not guilty in court for two charges of child neglect and one count of lying to police throughout the investigation.
According to Fox30Jax, Chris Barton’s Aunt, Shirley Barton believes Lonna was involved in what happened to little Lonzie. She says Lonna is ‘evil’ and the family is upset that the children’s father, Chris Barton would help his estranged wife bond out of jail. The toddler’s father is standing by his estranged wife, because he believe that she has had no involvement in little Lonzie’s disappearance.
Lonzie’s mother was separated from her husband, Chris Barton, at the time of little Lonzie’s disappearance and she was dating Ruben. However, her estranged husband believes that Lonna Barton had nothing to do with little Lonzie’s disappearance. According to News4Jax, a witness was angry as little Lonzie’s mother did the ‘happy dance’ as she was being released from jail. So far, little Lonzie has not been found and police are building a murder case against William ‘Ruben’ Ebron.
According to First Coast News.com, former State Attorney Harry Shorstein spoke to a FCN reporter after little Lonzie Barton had been missing about a week. Attorney Shorstein is not part of the Lonzie Barton case, but explained that the toddler’s body is not needed for prosecuting this case. However, he also knows that it will be a difficult task for the assigned prosecutors, because they must prove that the suspects have been lying since day one.Many people believe the mother knows more than she is saying, but at this point she is not talking to anyone.
According to One News Page.com , an audio recording surfaced that revealed Lonna L. Barton talking with a friend about using drugs and about Ebron involvement in Lonzie’s disappearance. Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has this secret recording and it is now part of their investigation into little Lonzie’s disappearance. This case started when this adorable blonde-haired, blue-eyed toddler and his five-year-old sister were left in the care of the mother’s boyfriend William ‘Ruben’ Ebron. The mother Lonna was working at Wacko’s as an exotic dancer.
Ebron took her to work and later texted her to find a ride home, which she found with a co-worker. According to News4Jax, Lonna’s coworker gave her ride home and she stated that the mother’s actions were odd and suspicious.
She was living in a one bedroom apartment with Ebron and the two children at the Ravenwood Apartments located at 8030 South Old Kings Rd.
According to Jacksonville.com, on July 24th, 2015, Ebron reported his car stolen with the toddler in it. Ebron told investigators that his car was stolen with the toddler sleeping inside of it, but the police found the car a few blocks away and Lonzie was not inside the car.
According to News4Jax, a video surfaced that showed Ebron was lying and police arrested Ebron immediately. At first, the police made the mother seem like she was a victim, who was distraught over the loss of her missing son. From the moment police met Lonzie’s mother that night, she instantly began telling a series of lies. According to News4Jax, she told police that she didn’t know her apartment number and she didn’t know Ebron.
Police discovered throughout the investigation the Ebron was a drug dealer and that Lonzie’s mother lived with Ebron. Police say she knew he stored and sold drugs that were stored in an unlocked location, which put both of the small children in harm’s way. Later, through more intense investigations and witnesses that knew Lonna, actually told police about a tattoo that Lonna had on her side that read …‘Ruben’.
According to News4Jax, on Aug. 18, 2015, police arrested Lonna Lauramore Barton for lying to police and two counts of child neglect, but more charges may follow. Police say they have dealt with nothing but lies from the mother Lonna and Ebron, since the 911 call came in the early hours of July 24th, 2015. Unfortunately, both parties have lied from the very beginning of the investigation, which has police frustrated and wanting justice for little Lonzie Barton.
According to WOKV, little Lonzie had a bruise to the back on his head by his ear, he was lethargic, vomiting, and he had yellow fluid coming from his ear. His mother went to work, instead of rushing the injured child to the hospital. Additionally, she had a heated argument with Ebron, but still left both minor children with him.
The investigators are piecing together a murder investigation against Ebron, because little Lonzie deserves justice and a proper burial. If the mother had a part in this crime, the investigators will charge her as well as Ebron. Right now, police are still asking everyone to pray, so they can find this adorable boy’s body. These new developments have broken the hearts of many in the First Coast community, who have helped search for this toddler.
According to First Coast News.com, after being missing for almost two months now, the police have search on a massive scale and private parties have also searched for this toddler. A week after little Lonzie went missing the police shifted from a search rescue mission to a recovery mission. According to First Coast New.com, Little Lonzie is a distant cousin to Haleigh Cummings, due the mother’s side of the family. Haleigh went missing and had never been found up to this day, even after gaining national headlines.
Recently, Lonna and Chris Barton were arrested on felony drug charges after selling drugs to an undercover cop. According to First Coast News.com, both Chris Barton and Lonna Barton were being watched by the Baker County Sheriff’s Office for several weeks now. According the spokesman, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s was not involved in this arrest or drug dealing investigation. Now, the judge are requesting the each suspect take drug tests, as well as setting a high bond for each suspect.
Little Lonzie is missing, presumably he is dead, but both parents have a drug problem and they chose to continue getting high. According to First Coast News.com, the boyfriend Ruben has tried to escape and has made threatening calls, but police are asking him to come clean about the toddler’s whereabouts. So, as these parents keep making bad choices, the police can only hope that someone will break and finally reveal where little Lonzie is buried.

Additionally, she asked the coworker to take her to a place where someone owed her money. According to News4Jax, the police saw her coworker’s car and he asked them questions, which is when the officer learned that Lonna was the missing toddler’s mother.
This is when police say, Lonna began immediately lying to the investigators and the coworker confronted her when they were alone. The coworker felt she was not acting like a distraught mother, whose child has just been reported missing. According to News4Jax, the coworker stated that Lonna Lauramore Barton didn’t get upset, instead she starting acting odd. The coworker said she seemed to be consoling Mr. Ebron, instead of freaking out about the toddler’s disappearance.
Police are building a murder case against Mr. Ebron, because they believe that he murdered the toddler and they believe that he has the answers to where the toddler’s body is located. After an exhaustive search for over a week, police are still no closer to finding this adorable 21 month-old little boy. According to News4Jax, the police are hoping someone has information that will help them find this missing toddler and bring his body home. Furthermore, Crimestoppers is offering a reward for any tips or information that will lead them to recovering Lonzie’s remains.

He was reported missing on July 24th, 2015 around 2:00 AM, by the mother’s boyfriend and he also reported his car missing. That morning, little Lonzie and his 5-year-old sister was in the care of his mom’s boyfriend, William Ruben Ebron. The toddler went missing from the 8000 block of Old Kings Rd and police need the public’s help to find him.
His car was a 1995 orange Honda with a black hood, but the car was eventually found four blocks away from the apartments. However, the toddler was not inside the car and the police fear that the boyfriend knows more than he is telling them. Little Lonzie was only wearing a diaper at the time of his disappearance, but police are concerned that he may have just walked off from the car. According to Jacksonville.com, the police are asking everyone to look on their properties and keep a look out for this blonde hair blue eyed toddler.
The police are searching for the toddler on foot and with search dogs, as well as other agencies that have offered their services. The police say that the natural parents are victims and not considered suspects, but Mr. Ebron was charged with two counts of child neglect on Friday, which was unrelated to this case. However, he was on bond from a prior case from Baker County and he had a record of different types of charges like: armed robbery, grand theft auto, possession, domestic violence, and violation of probation.
According to Jacksonville.com, one of the conditions of his bond was that he was not supposed to have contact or live with Lonna Lauramore. The couple was living together in the Ravenwood apartments at 8030 South Old Kings Rd. The mother and father are working closely with police to help find their son. According to Jacksonville.com, both the mother and the boyfriend face drug related charges, which is separate from the toddler’s disappearance.
The mother’s boyfriend, Mr. Ebron told the police that he stopped by the apartment to “get something”, but later he admitted that he went inside to “use cocaine”. The police verified that the mother was working at the time her young son went missing, while in the care of her boyfriend. According to Gray, the police say that the mother’s boyfriend is now considered a suspect and may have been lying about the car being stolen.
Unfortunately, both children were left alone inside the car by Mr. Ebron, but the 5-year-old sister got frightened and left the toddler in the car by himself. The police believe that Mr. Ebron has the answers, which they need to find the missing toddler. The investigation has turned from a missing child to a possible homicide investigation. Police are now focusing on searching waterways, retention ponds, and wooded areas.
