Hi everyone, so recently I got left…and I don’t receive child support. I am a mom of three young girls (ages 8 and under)! I am a full-time student…I am trying to get my real estate license online to get a job quicker, but I am also attending school for my bachelor’s in health administration. I currently work for 2 businesses that are run by amazing families who allow me to take my kids with me while I work!! It saves me so much being able to not find a sitter. Even with doing all of this and trying my best to do everything I can to support my little ones…I just can’t seem to stay above it all. Every time I find myself breaking even in life something happens, car breaks down, hours get cut, kids need new clothes or shoes because theirs are too small. I spend many nights crying while my girls sleep just wondering what else I can do to get by. I have exhausted all my family members of help to the point I’m losing them. I would never think to just ask people for help, but I am not sure where else to turn anymore. I’ve signed up for debt settlement assistance, I’m on the egg donor list waiting to be picked, I’ve sold everything of value I own. I have always put my children’s needs before mine, so at the end of the day they are fed, bathed and happy…most nights I’ll go to bed having barely eaten for the day because I don’t want to eat things my kids will eat and take from them. As I sit here and look at my bills pile up, I’m at a point of desperation…all I want is to get above water and feel like I can breathe again. I’m two months behind on my mortgage thanks to my new situation and I just want to catch up and get a little ahead, so I have time to prepare and get my ducks lined up again. My mortgage is $1,900 a month…my bills are all around another $1,000 a month. So, if I could find a way to get around $6,000 that would put me in a place where I am caught up…more would make me feel safe but I’m not a person to ask for more than I need. I want to stand on my own two feet and teach my daughters that their momma could do it and so can they when they are older. I’ve supplied a photo of myself but am uncomfortable doing one with my kids for safety reasons and I hope that is acceptable. I’m so uncomfortable posting this but as I sit here watching my kids play, I am just ready to be able to focus more on them and not be so stressed, I want to be a good mom. Thank you if you find it in your heart to help me, I will forever be grateful & tell my girls of the amazing person who helped us stand strong when nothing else seemed possible.
