I am so embarrassed to be writing this right now it’s hard to even know where to begin. I am 24, my husband is 25 and we have a 2 year old son who is turning 3 on the 29th of May. Me and my husband both work full time and we are still struggling daily to survive financially. We live in a house that was my mother’s for most of my life until she left almost 18 months ago. Within the first 6 months of her leaving we fell so far behind on the mortgage that we decided we couldn’t keep up with it and had to find somewhere else to live. Since then we have struggled every month just to pay the utilities, our car insurance and our phone bills. All that without mentioning making sure we are all fed and paying for child care for our little man when we are working. We have fallen behind on all of those payments, and have had our electricity and phones shut off multiple times in the past year. Since we stopped paying the mortgage the house has gone into foreclosure and we have to move out on the 24th of June. We have nowhere to go and now have no money saved simply because we’ve had to spend everything just to keep our electricity, heat and water on as well as paying our car insurance and our sons child care. Our car is a Hyundai Sonata that is on its last legs. My mechanic told me about 2 months ago that the transmission would almost certainly be shot within 6 months, and that is in addition to the fact that the brakes no longer work and the engine is constantly leaking oil. I lay awake alot of nights overwhelmed with stress and anxiety just thinking about how we’re going to survive like this and what we will do after our car dies and we lose our house. Theres plenty of nights where we don’t even have anything for dinner and have to rely on the kindness of the people who work at our local soup kitchen/homeless shelter. I am ashamed to say it but the truth is we cannot support ourselves or our son right now. We have no family or friends that can help us in any way really. We have tried applying for loans from our credit union and a bunch of online companies but none of them will approve our loan requests as both of our credit scores are poor due to us having never really built up our credit, and the fact that we have fallen behind on most of our bills in the last year while we’ve been struggling financially. I can’t explain how terrified I am when I really think about how we barely have money for food, and soon we will be evicted with nowhere to go and a car that is about to die. I just dont know what to do as I said before we both work full time and that barely covers our basic living costs so we have no way to provide our son with the stable and secure home that he deserves. How am I going to figure out how to afford first, last and security for a small apartment when I can barely afford our dinner tonight? I dont know what to expect from this post, but if you are reading this and thinking of helping I just want you to know that anything at all will help us more than you can ever imagine. We are just a young family trying to survive on minimum wage, and all my husband and I care about is providing our son with the stable and secure home life that he deserves. At this moment I have no idea how we are going to achieve that and it terrifies me. All I can really say is that we need help in the worst way, and anything will make a huge difference. Even just having dinner paid for one night is a blessing when you are living the way we are right now. I have included a picture of the 3 of us as well as the link to our paypal. Thank you for taking the time to read this, we hope you have a great day filled with many blessings!
