Hello, everyone. Please take the time to hear me out!
I am 18 years old and I am a high school graduate, I am currently unemployed which is really kicking my butt. My boyfriend and I moved into our own little apartment, which is great because it is our own.. I’m still figuring out how to go about budgeting; my boyfriend works but he doesn’t make much. Our rent is $700 a month and I am pregnant so I don’t know how to go about getting a job while I’m pregnant? I’m 26 weeks and I want what is best for our baby girl so I try not to strain myself too much. I find little side jobs to do, like baby sitting and cleaning houses, but it doesn’t help nearly as much as we need. With all of our bills it causes a big stress on both of us.. Our car recently broke down and we had to get it towed to an auto shop which really burned a hole in our already burnt pocket. In response – were late on rent this month, and thank God we managed to get the money eventually. We get food stamps but they hardly help, and any cent you can spare would help us. Please consider helping a young couple out who are expecting a baby girl in April; we don’t plan to always be in the spot we are, but life can be so unexpected. Also!! We are trying to save up to move into a better apartment, the one we are currently living at we settled for because we needed renting history… The roof leaks and the space is too small for when we get our baby girl…!
We want to start saving up to get a crib and baby clothes; so far we have went to a program to get a few outfits for her, but we would be forever grateful to receive any help you would be willing to give. Thank you. God bless!!
