I will start by saying that for me to write something like this, means that I am at rock bottom and don’t know where else to turn. My husband and I have 4 young kids and we finally found what was supposed to be our “forever home” in November 2020. We have transformed this place and now have a small homestead. Outside you will find lots of vegetable gardens, herb gardens, wildflower fields, goats, chickens, and ducks. We have never been happier!
In the fall of 2022, my kids started getting sick almost weekly. My son started having constant migraines/vomiting. After many doctors appointments, we still don’t have answers. He see’s a pediatric neurologist in April. Between all of these appointments and the whole family getting extremely sick with covid, my husband has had to take time off of work. We already were living paycheck to paycheck, but we have now fallen so far behind that we have to pick and choose which bills get paid each month. It won’t be long before the utilities get shut off and they begin the foreclosure process. We worked so hard for everything that we have and it would be DEVASTATING to lose it all. My husband is an electrician and makes decent money. I may not be technically employed but I work my absolute hardest every single day. I make sure the house is always kept up, I tend to the farm, and I make sure my kid’s are always set. Even if I were to go and find a job, it wouldn’t be sustainable as the cost of childcare is so high and my children have so many appointments each week. If we lose everything, we will have no where to go. Our credit is shot as we have been struggling so bad and have gone delinquent on most of our accounts. Buying/renting would be out of the question without credit. I know you don’t know us personally, but we are good people and doing the best we can. We are just trying to raise decent kids that will someday make a difference. Anything helps if you are able. Praying and hoping for a miracle. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
