First, thank you for taking the time to read this.
I am Peter 46 and widower since 2019 and father of a son of 20 and a daughter of almost 9
We were a happy family with a 12-year-old son at the time. We had no family left besides my father. In 2015, my wife suddenly became pregnant even though the doctors said she could no longer have children. Despite everything we were still happy, but our daughter became a problem child. Severe autism was diagnosed and our daughter would never be able to live independently and would always need care that cost a lot. We decided that my wife would stop working to take care of her, she was also a very successful model and that would stop too. I would take an extra job and that meant we could still live a fairly normal life.
We could no longer afford great luxuries, but despite that we were happy.
In 2019 my wife was diagnosed with cancer, she had lung cancer and also developed liver cancer, so there was a very small chance of recovery.
She had worked in chemistry for years and these were the consequences, the doctors said.
This was a major setback for both of us, but even though she was ill, she tried to care for our daughter as best she could. After 6 months she suddenly died after an operation and my world completely collapsed and I became depressed. That year my father also died in February. He had been a heart patient for a long time and we already saw it coming.
My parents had already divorced in 1995 because my mother was an alcohol addict and she died shortly after the divorce. A few years after their divorce, my father remarried a woman who was 16 years younger and just took him for the money and only wanted a lot of luxury.
After my father’s death I inherited his condo but the wife wouldn’t leave and it became a time of lawsuits and lawyers to get her out. Ultimately she had to leave after 2 years, but the big surprise was the debts she left behind due to forgery and which I could now pay for and there were also the lawyer costs that had also risen considerably. I had hoped to sell my father’s condo and use the money for better care for my daughter and the outstanding attorney fees and to be able to work more again. In the end I tried to pay as much as I could but even the sale of the condo wasn’t enough to pay for everything. Because the debts have still not been paid in full, $58000 remains outstanding. These are increasing because I cannot earn enough and caring for my daughter is becoming increasingly expensive.
My house was supposed to be paid off within 2 years but now they are trying to foreclose on it and evict me and my daughter from our home.
They want to sell the house to pay the debts and just throw us out on the street. I have thought about committing suicide several times, but I don’t have the courage because my daughter is there and she gives me a lot of love and gives me the courage to fight anyway.
But my fight is looking more and more like losing and the day we will be on the streets, I think the fight will end completely. I have to find those 58000 dollars as quickly as possible to save us and I would get an extra loan if my house is paid in full first, but that is still 2 years and we don’t have that time. My son is now in the army and tries to help me as best he can, but that is not enough either.
I heard about this site through an acquaintance and am now placing my hopes here to be able to remain in our home and continue to fight for my daughter. This is my last refuge before disaster strikes
