I am embarrassed and full of shame to be writing this but have reached a point where I really have no other option. I am a full time single father to my son and have been raising him 100% of the time for the past seven years with zero assistance. I am a teacher and coach two sports at the school. Living on one income on a teacher salary in Northern Virginia has been challenging to say the least. Despite coaching two sports to earn extra money, working part time and summer jobs I have still had to rely on credit cards and loans to get by and survive the summer months when I do not receive my teacher salary. I have reached the financial breaking point. Credit cards are maxed out. I can’t another loan as due to my debt to income ratio. I was praying for a tax refund but after doing my taxes I owe 1200 dollars. My checking account is literally at ZERO this morning and I don’t get paid again until April 1. I dont qualify for any governmental handouts that I have helped fund with my taxes. When our food runs out in the next couple days I literally have no idea how I will feed and support my son! I know there are people who are worse off then me but I am praying and hoping that my story resonates with at least one person who has walked a mile in my shoes who is able and willing to help. Thanks for taking the time to read! And should anyone reading this choose to help THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! You are indeed an angel and I karma will smile upon you and your loved ones.
