According to the mother, she had to quickly find a safe, warm place for her children, whilst pondering over her next move.
“Get somewhere safe and warm tonight, at least until I’m able to figure out how to get home,” she said in the footage.
Answering what took her away from the comfort of her home in Tallahassee, she said she wanted to be a big-time influencer.
And instead of cashing out big, Jones found herself out of cash and shelter options for her three young ones.
Kiearia Jones said she and the children stayed in a motel when they first arrived in Houston but ran out of money quickly. So, they moved around until the weather grew colder.
Unfortunately for Jones, that was the last night the shelter would be open.
“I did not know that they were closing down tomorrow. That was definitely a lot to hear,” she said.
Caseworkers are trying hard to get Kiearia Jones and her children back home. But with the roads set to re-freeze soon, that might take a while.
“I’m confused. You can be an influencer anywhere. This was a careless act on her part, uprooting kids with no plan and only to struggle because you want fame. This is a shame,” a social media user wrote.
