Friends, family and sympathetic members of the community have already donated more than $22,000 to support Goodloe’s daughter, Simaya.

On June 18th,2016 in Washington,D.C. Stephanie  Goodloe was tragically taken away from us through domestic violence. Stephanie was known to be a God fearing,genuine,passionate woman with an infectious smile! Through her daily example of leadership Stephaine motivated everyone around her. Stephanie was a very giving woman and put herself last to support anyone especially children. She LOVED everyone. One of the things that everyone knew about Stephanie was her unconditional love and admiration she had for her daughter Simaya. Her life revolved around Simaya and giving her the best whether it was education, extra curricular activities,or anything to further her growth as a growing young lady.

I (Arlene ,one of Stephanie’s Best Friends/Coworkers)created this account for anyone who wants to contribute to supporting Simaya after the tragic loss of our beloved daughter, mother, friend, and coworker Stephanie. I will be withdrawing  these funds and they will be given to Simaya’s Grandmother (Stephanie’s Mother Sharon)to be  used strictly for Simaya after this loss.

    The protection order system is being reformed so it benefits
    minor children and parents rather than benefiting family
    lawyers, finally. Were any family lawyers involved with the
    initial filing of a protection order against this family? They do
    this in most cases to get all the parents assets, savings and
    property in the ensuing litigation, police calls and trials (war)
    that result, but very often this happens instead. Ex parte
    protection orders (which are granted automatically by family
    court judges who have no skills or knack for conflict
    resolution), and are known among family lawyers
    as the”nuclear option” for these reasons. When minor
    children are involved in a custody/access disputes,
    the “new” protection will order three things: 1. inter-parent
    communication, 2. mediation, and 3. Joint custody
    and equal parenting time. Bye bye family violence,
    poverty, and blood sucking, hate-filled family lawyers.
