I’m trying to make a move from my home town and I’m taking my daughter with me. I come from a small town and there is nothing here, no place to advance to, etc. It’s like I’m stuck. There are things I want to accomplish in life. My daughter doesn’t deserve to grow up poor like I did, and I want to try and do something about it. She is 3 years old and her dad isn’t really in the picture. He sees her for maybe an hour every 2 or 3 months. So she doesn’t really know who he is. So I’m a single mother just looking for some help with moving expenses and things associated with moving.
I got pregnant with her when I was a senior in high school. I graduated and started to go on to college, but that was too difficult for me to handle at the time with a newborn baby, a full time job, and full time school. I was so exhausted and I made the decision to drop college because I had a baby that I had to take care of and provide for, so I couldn’t quit my job and go to school to further my life. But now she is 3 and I think it is time for me to make the decision of what is best for her, and at the same time, what is best for me.
I was a straight “A” student all throughout grade school and high school. Even the work I did when I started college was “A” worthy. I’ve always wanted to be an accountant. So the goals I have set in place for myself is to go back to college get at least my bachelor’s degree in Accounting, Finance, and Business Management, work for a firm for a little bit to actually get my feet wet, then open my own firm. Those are of course long term goals. Short term, my daughter and I are moving to get a fresh start. Everything is set into place except a place to live. Housing is very expensive and it’s not just us.
My daughter’s aunt, uncle and cousin are moving as well. It was actually their idea for us to come along and get this fresh start out of this small town where I was born and raised. There are three adults and two 3 year old girls. We don’t have the credit or enough money saved for a down payment so we can’t buy a house. Which means we are stuck renting, which we think is fine for short term, but beings there are 5 of us, it has to be at least a three bedroom house, which are incredibly expensive nowadays.
Usually I’m too prideful to ask anyone for money, but this is from all of us… We have no other option. Please help us out, anything will help and would be so greatly appreciated.
Thank you all so much for your time and efforts and if you can’t help yourself please share with your friends,
