My name is Jordan and I am a 27 year old single mother to a beautiful 10 year old little girl. I recently purchased my first home in another state from which I had lived my entire life. I thought I had it figured out and was ready for this step in my life. However, life had other plans. In the span of a few months my daughters father left us, I became the caretaker of my handicapped uncle, and struggled to find work and then lost my job. I am not one to ask for help but I have no family here and the family I have back home are not in a position to help. I believe I am a decent person and I work hard to provide for my family and make the most of our lives. I dont know what we will do if I lose my home. We have no place to go.
I am going to school full time for business and I have to admit struggled with time management and juggling all of my responsibilities. I have made some poor choices and maybe not always done the smartest or most responsible thing. Moving here was our chance to start over. To build a new life for me and her. I realize there is never a redo in life but this is the closest we were going to come. She loves it here. She had made friends and is thriving in her new school. It is a much better school than we could have gotten her in to back home. So here I am swallowing my pride and counting on the kindness of strangers.
