Over the summer I gave birth to twins, completely changing my home and life. Previously my husband and I worked different shifts which allowed us both to work full time and still have someone home with our 7-year-old daughter before and after school. While it was a perfect system for us before, the overlap in shifts doesn’t work with infants and daycare is not an option as it would be so incredibly expensive for two infants.
We have decreased work to one of us full time and one only part time so that we can always have someone home with the babies. We’ve been searching for different jobs that would allow us both to work full time but have so far been unsuccessful. The decrease in income has been very hard on us, and debts are building up.
My husband and I have worked hard to build a life together, we finally got our house about 18 months ago and were so excited to finally be in a position to add to our family. Now I fear we’re at risk of losing it all since we’re behind on our mortgage. I’ve tried everything I can think of to try to get more money to make ends meet until we find better employment, but we just can’t catch up.
I don’t make a habit of asking for money or help with my personal life, but I’m stuck and desperate. I currently owe $1,724 for my mortgage to get it current. This is my primary request, just enough to catch up and let me struggle through another day. $5,000 would be ideal as it would cover my mortgage for a few months while we continue to search for better employment. I would never ever expect such generosity, but since I’m already doing something that I never thought I would be by begging for money on the internet, I might as well state that $91,197 would pay off my house.
If I could just get my mortgage payment covered, I could handle all my other bills, catch up on outstanding debt, and then be able to pay it forward and help others in need. I just want to be able to be self-sufficient and to provide a good life and home for my children. The constant financial stress has really been weighing on my mental state and I don’t feel that I’m currently the best version of myself as a person or a mother. Please, if you are able, consider being the big break that I need in my life.
I’m including a picture of my mortgage statement as proof of amounts. Also, a picture of my beautiful children with the hopes that they’ll pull at your heart strings.
