For 13 years I’ve been a single mom. Times weren’t always easy or a walk in the park, but through the struggles and hardships all together being the kids mom and dad is very rewarding. With every first step, every first tooth, every first day of school, every birthday, every holiday and every other experience I’ve had with them, they were worth all of it. They will forever be worth it. In the last year things for me and for my children have been rough. We went from having our own home to jumping from friend to friend. We were homeless. From me having a job and caring for my kids to losing my job and having to rely on child support and on out of salon appointments, if I had any that month. From having our own transportation to having no means of transportation due to letting a friend borrow my car for 30 minutes and her wrecking it then taking off. From having legal physical custody to not having custody due to hear say, losing my home, losing my job and losing my vehicle. Now without my three kids I have hit a huge state of depression. Getting out of bed without them is hard. All I have ever known for half my life is to be a mom. Now I don’t get to be except every other Saturday for 4 hours and its supervised. So all of this down pouring on me has made getting up and getting a job even harder. I’m behind on my energy bill and my water bill. Combined it’s almost $1,500.00 behind. I’m in section 8 housing so I could be promised to have a home for my children. My utilities have been shut off since May. Now I am facing eviction for not having my utilities turned on. I have a week to get this fixed and back to the requirements for housing. If I don’t have it all figured out then I wont have the last place my kids called home to come to for the few days I do get them. If I lose this place it’ll be the final straw of losing everything I’ve worked so hard for on my own so my children have everything they need. Loosing our home could result in losing my children completely. Please help me continue to build up and not lose hope.
