In this moment, as I pour my heart out, I want you to know that I am far from greedy, and my humility knows no bounds. The journey we’ve embarked upon has been one of resilience, strength, and unwavering hope. Today, I stand before you with a dream that might seem audacious, yet it carries a profound significance in our lives.
With utmost sincerity, I express how overwhelmed with gratitude we would be if we could muster the means to put a down payment on a house, a haven where memories would dreams would take flight. Every ounce of support, each act of kindness, would be etched in our hearts, a testament of God and to the goodness that thrives within humanity.
I implore you, dear souls who may deem us deserving of your helping hand, to understand the impact your compassion could have on us. We are not merely seeking financial assistance, but a glimmer of hope that lights up the path ahead. Your generosity would be a lifeline, a lifeline to a brighter future that we’ve dared to envision.
I’m a single father of 3. My oldest daughter left to college a day ago. $400 a month is her cost, but knowing my struggle. She was fighting her best to not go, just to stay home and help me with her siblings. I worked so hard to get her this far. I wouldn’t have ever forgiven myself if I allowed it. My middle child is now in my care at the age of 15. After 5 years of her being kept from me. I’ve learned the reasons for this was due to the abuse. Amidst the challenges we’ve faced, my daughter’s journey has been particularly arduous, marred by the scars of physical, mental, and emotional abuse. It’s a weight we carry, a pain we strive to heal, as we embrace therapy as a means to restore her spirit and reclaim her innocence, childhood, and faith in humanity. My son at 5 years old is ok, just a handful. However, he’s my little man. He does his best to help as if he is older or an adult. I feel so broken for the fact that he even has that idea in a place where he should only be playing and being a child.
On top of all of this, my landlords have sold our home from under us, leaving me figure it out with 2 weeks or so left to go. There’s nothing out here to even rent that’s reasonable. First and last month’s rent and deposit required upon renting a home. Around here, a 2 bedroom home is $1200 a month. So finding one with the space we need, I can’t afford. So we’re trying everything to buy.
Yesterday, finding out my warranty won’t cover my car repair. It’s $9,000 to have it repaired. So needless to say, I’m stuck paying for a car we’ve no longer have. I’m struggling to find rides already. I’m doing my best to not give up and just break. There’s so much more, I just don’t want to write a book. We’re just looking help in anyway. So, needless to say! Your support would not only alleviate the burden but would be a soothing balm to the wounds we’ve endured recently.
As I pen down these words, my heart swells with gratitude for your precious time, for considering our plea, for the potential of a brighter tomorrow that your kindness might bring. May your day be blessed beyond measure, just as you have the power to bless ours. Thank you, from the depths of our souls, for being the beacon of light in our journey and/or even hearing out our story.
