I’m not sure where or how to start. I’m 31 years old. My boyfriend and I have been together for two years now. Together we have three children. I have two boys , Matthew (10) and Brian (9). My boyfriend has a daughter , Paige (13). I just re enrolled in class to continue towards my associates degree in business administration. My children’s father left us about 6 years ago now. I have been doing my best to raise my kids. My boyfriend has had full custody of his daughter since she was 4years old. He fought to get his child from a harmful environment and has been working hard to raise her on his own. As on right now, the car we have to transport us to and from work, school and doctor appointments is not legal or safe. I have a 2001 Honda CR-V SE. I bought the car from a friend about two and a half years ago for $1,000. It’s my first car and I worked hard that year to use my tax refund to finally buy a car. I have definitely got my money’s worth outta this car. Unfortunately I was at a point in my life I was struggling and I decided the best option I had was to get an auto title loan on my car so that I could pay my bills and keep a roof over my Children’s head. Shortly after I lost my job. I couldn’t keep up with the payments. That was in April of 2017. Since then I have met a wonderful man as I stated above. We do the best we can to keep our heads above water. But due to my inability to pay my loan back I have a lien on my car which makes it to where I can’t register my car. To make matters worse the car has been slowly falling apart. I no longer have a drive shaft and my muffler is held on by a fly swatter handle. The a/c doesn’t work and the front windows don’t roll down anymore. My locks don’t lock and my handle is broken on the driver door both inside and out. The list keeps going. Let’s not forget I live in Florida the hottest state known to man. Our children also have lots of appointments that we have had to cancel due to the issues with my car. My oldest son has a severe allergies to bug, and my youngest has GI tummy problems. My boyfriends daughter is visually impaired and has many doctor appointments. I have looked into trying to get another car. Everywhere I have gone will cost me at least $3,000-$5,000 to get into a car that’s safe and away from the lien I have. My title loan was originally $400 borrowed. It is now $1,300 to pay it back. Which still leaves me in a car that’s falling apart. By going through a dealership and getting a used car it gets my family something safer and away from the loan. I start school in August and was trying to use whatever school money left in September to try and get a car. But my classes are more then I expected and doesn’t look like that will happen. We are trying our best and heading in the right direction, we just need a little help. I’m not asking for help with a fancy car. I just need something safe and reliable for my children most of all.
