I am writing to ask for help to save my home from being foreclosed. I am desperate and out of options. The past year has been a little rough. I was left to be a single mother of 4 young children and my place of employment was restructuring. During that time I went from being a full time employee with overtime to part time employee with no overtime available. Thankfully I was given back the full time position this past week. During this time I tried to keep everything together the best I could. I was unable to keep up with everything and have fallen behind on my mortgage and receive monthly shut off notices for the utilities. I recently had to junk my car just so I could have money to cover the electric and water bills before they were shut off. It also helped with some groceries. Luckily I have some great coworkers who have allowed me to ride to and from work with them. It is getting very depressing to the point I don’t want to get out of bed. I just want to throw in the towel and give up. I am so exhausted and feel defeated. I can’t give up because I have 4 little ones who depend on me. Knowing the holidays are coming and the thought of possibly losing our home, our safe haven, our comfort zone kills me inside and has become extremely depressing. Christmas is something children looked forward to every year. I feel like a failure as a mother but deep down I know I am an amazing momma. I sacrifice for them daily and do the best that I can at all times. I stay strong and don’t let the kids know how bad it really is but cry myself to sleep every single night. I know there are people out there in situations much worse than mine. Any help is greatly appreciated. Once I get back on my feet and everything together I would be more than willing to help others in need. Thank you for taking the time to read about my situation.
