I never thought I would be here, doing anything like this. Normally I would be the person reading and donating to others. Now I find myself on the other side of the table and so far nothing. I am the mom to two wonderful beautiful kids. A 9year old son and 8year old daughter.
Worked hard for years and now it seems that we may lose everything we have built. I owe about $1200 in mortgage payments. I have been paying everything I can, I have never just missed a payment but havent been able to make a full payment in about four months. I have been looking for work for about 5 hours each day which has also depleated the finances with the price of gas. I can do without everything myself, but not my babies. I can’t bear the thought of them without a home to live in. They have never complained about anything, if we had to eat noodles for a week they just ate the noodles and were happy. I can’t ask them to act happy about living in the van. I just can’t.
I do my best to shield them from all of out adult problems and the thought of telling them they may lose everything they’ve ever known breaks my heart, I cry thinking about it. If someone, anyone can help. I know it’s tight for everyone out there, I feel bad even asking. The way I figure is I have always tried to help even when it was hard for me to do so. I dont expect anyone to put themselves out for us, my only hope is that someone that is fortunate enough to help without putting themselves in my position may decide to do so. I would be forever grateful and in your debt, also any and all prayers are appreciated. There is truly power in prayer. Yours Humbly,
A desperate mommy.
