Hello, I’m not one to usually ask other people for money but I have hit hard times and I don’t know where else to turn to. I came to the United States from Europe when I was a young girl. I saw my parents come to this country with nothing and work as hard as they could to provide a good life for me and my brother. They instilled in me, that if you work hard you can achieve anything. I have always had that mindset and still do but even with working hard I am still falling behind. This year has been the hardest for my family and I financially. To start the year off, while I was on maternity leave, my husband lost his job so we had to use all of our savings to pay rent and other obligations. We did a great job saving money to make up for the loss of income during my maternity leave but no one expected my husband to get laid off at such a crucial time in our lives. My husband was able to find another job but it was still hard to afford bills on only one income. After I had our daughter we decided, financially, it would be best for me to not work. Daycare was just way too expensive and it would add even more financial stress that we did not need. A few months into the year, we got into a car accident that totaled my car(it was completely paid off) so we had to get another one. I am having a hard time keeping up with the payments. We had to decide which bills were most important and hold off on other ones. It breaks my heart when my older daughter asks for something and I can’t afford to buy it for her. Even though material things are not important, it would still be nice to be able to tell her that, yes, she can have the thing she really wants. I’m currently working part time from home so we don’t have to pay for a babysitter. Even with our jobs it’s just so hard to keep our heads above water. We just need a little head start to enable us to finally not have to worry about bills. It is like every time we pay a bill another one comes right after. We just cannot catch a break. I am two months behind on my car payment and that’s the most important bill for me to get caught up on right now. If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated. I would be so grateful for anything we receive.
