I’m am writing this as a last resort.. I’ve tried anything that I could to avoid “begging money”. But here I am desperately needing help..
I don’t know how many times in the last year and a half I’ve prayed myself to tears late at night after my children have been long asleep. Praying and asking God ” why so much pain?”
On the last day of 2017, after a normal day of my new store manager position, and getting prepared for the kids’ winter break to be over soon, my 17 year old son was an innocent bystander in a shooting at a teen party. They shot my baby in his head!!! No suspects found as of yet.
So of course I had to resign from the highest paying job I’ve ever had to live at my child’s hospital bed in ICU. It never occurred to me the eventual consequences of this decision knowing I have 3 other small children who may have to bury their oldest brother. But I ask, what would you do if faced with a decision such as this?
But thank God my mom was living with us at the time, to help out with the babies while I stay at the hospital, waiting for my child to open his eyes just once.
Eventually Kaleb pulled through, despite advise to pull the plug on him. Doctors said he is a miracle, and when we go to therapy, they stress that. But imagine having to physically lift and take care of a child 6’2 150lbs multiple times daily…
4 months later, my sister’s diabetes won the fight and she passed away April 29,2018. My mother was so heartbroken she died less than 24 hrs later. My 9 year old daughter found her as she was waking up for school the next morning. I was even more depressed at that point. Kaleb tried to commit suicide due to the unbearable pain. I can’t say I wasn’t there myself. My kids kept me alive.
Fast forward, 2019 Kaleb is in better spirits, still not walking, but we’re growing in faith daily. However, I need to be able to work full time and I can’t, due to my insurance not covering full time home care. I have no other family here and I’ve gotten really behind on bills. Kaleb’s SSI only covers the utilities every month. And I barely make 200 a week, that goes to the landlord. But its still not enough. She is now moving close to eviction. And I have no extra money because I spent my savings covering bills and paying to bury mom. She had no life insurance. I’ve applied for the crime victim fund and was denied because his hospital bills were covered. I’ve called countless faith based charities, they always say they have no funding. I’ve asked family in other states, to no avail. I am out of options. If we are evicted, we have nowhere to go. We can’t live in a shelter because of my 13 year old son, as well as Kaleb and his hospital bed.
I don’t know what else to do, please someone help me with 3500 dollars so I won’t have to add becoming homeless with a disabled child to the list of my misfortune. Please help me pay my past due rent.
