We’re reaching out with a sincere plea for support in a situation that’s been anything but easy. We’re a hardworking couple, holding down full-time jobs, who unexpectedly had our lives turned upside down three years ago.
Our son, now 8, and our daughter, now 7, were taken from their mother’s care due to her ongoing struggles with addiction. In that challenging moment, we stepped up to the plate, offering them the love, stability, and nurturing they needed. We became their rocks, their protectors, and their source of hope.
Yet, it hasn’t been without its challenges, particularly on the financial front. Their biological mother, despite her legal obligations, has refused to provide any child support. This left us grappling with the significant financial burden of raising two wonderful children, including the hefty cost of daycare, which rings in at $250 per week!
Watching our savings dwindle and accumulating debt with creditors has been disheartening. Our dreams of owning a home, which once seemed achievable, now feel out of reach as my credit score has taken a hit. Despite our hard work and best efforts, the mounting financial stress has begun to take its toll on our family.
Unfortunately, child support enforcement hasn’t provided much relief. Their actions, like suspending her driver’s license, haven’t done much to address the core issue. So, with humility and a deep desire to offer our children a stable home, we’ve decided to ask for help.
Our son is a gifted student, excelling in math and science, with a passion for soccer. Our daughter loves to dance and sing, and we’d love to give her the opportunity to pursue her dreams through lessons. Recently, their school introduced them to club scouts and baton twirling, dreams they’ve had to put on hold due to our financial constraints. It’s
We’ve already cut out all non-essential spending and tightened our belts, but that light at the end of the tunnel still seems distant. It’s with utmost humility and a profound love for our children and my incredible wife, who’s a steadfast stepmother teaching them values and grace every day, that we’re turning to you for support.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 to clear my student loan debt, $7,000 to eliminate credit card debt, $16,000 to pay off a personal loan that initially helped us but has now become a burden, and $15,000 for a down payment on a home within our work commute. An extra $10,000 will be used to rebuild our savings account, which we’ve tapped into over the years.
We understand this is a significant request, but please know that your generosity will directly affect our family’s life. Your contribution will be a glimmer of hope, providing a brighter and more secure future for two wonderful children who deserve the best. Know that this amount will put us back on track, as we will continue to work hard, and make it count!
From the bottom of our hearts, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who chooses to stand by us. Your support won’t just ease our financial struggles but will also be a powerful testament to the goodness and compassion within our community.
Thank you, and may you be blessed for your kindness and generosity. Together, we can build a brighter tomorrow for our family and for our children, who truly deserve it!
