I’m a 21 year old that has strived to be independent in this ‘not so easy’ world. Upon learning that I was pregnant nine months ago, it changed my whole outlook on life. I was so much more motivated which is why I’m so sad that I have come to this point.
On July 6, 2017, I was blessed to give birth to a healthy baby boy. This changed my life forever. My hospital stay was about 4 days and we were set to leave. I was so happy and excited to bring my baby home.
Unfortunately, this was also the day my rent was due. I knew I didn’t have the money to pay. On my way to the hospital, I was so ecstatic to be induced but kept thinking about how I was going to pay.
My next check wouldn’t be in my account until the week after this and I only had 30 dollars in my savings account. I only had a few dollars in my checking account. I had to spend money on some baby stuff that I needed and well that drained my account. On my part, this was just poor budgeting.
Well, finally my check was deposited in my account. However my check did not cover everything and I was already a week late. Now I’m getting eviction notice letters on my door. Knowing that me and my newborn baby might not have a roof over our head is scaring me. Besides I don’t know how I’m going to go back to work yet because of childcare costs.
I have a few days to pay or I’ll be evicted. I don’t have money for anything right now and I’m trying to focus on making sure my baby will be secure. Moving right now, I wouldn’t even have a moving truck and my car is not working. I’m a strong believer that everything may go wrong and eventually it will be right.
This money that would be donated to me would pay my remainder balance of rent for the month of July and help me pay off next month rent for August until I establish my savings account again to pay off September’s rent.
Trust me, I’m a hardworking person and only seek this help because I can’t ask my family as of now and I can’t work because of my newborn baby.
Please help me. I would greatly appreciate your help and will thank you as long as I live.
