Reading through some of the stories on the site i cant help but feel discouraged in posting this as i am young and in good health, i shouldnt be in this situation and im not sure how i allowed it to happen.
I find myself today an orphan, no family but my 8 year old son.
my father passed away last year and left everything to his second wife.
which was fine with me , i did not expect anything but the house i lived in with my son, which was my fathers first home in Mexico when he arrived here from Germany in 1990. But in the end she got that too and now im left homeless. it was more than a home, it was an integral part of my income system.
I had many plans for my life, none included becoming a single father at age 19, working full time has always been hard since ive never had any help with my son after school, and i did not finish college.
Spending time with my son and helping him overcome his academic difficulties has always been more important to me than anything else, my child needs a lot of help.
still i managed, i managed to create a system that worked for us.
using our home as a venue i became an English tutor and with our garage turned into a small woodworking shop, money was coming steady enough to make a living and still be there for my son, i thought i had it all figured out.
now thats all gone, the day i got home just to find all locks had been changed was the worst smack in the face ive ever had.. scratch that, explaining it to my son was even worse.
with the little money i had saved, i found us a small apartment but i lost my means to generate income, i am looking for a job but its very hard here in Mexico, and its about to get worse.
I would like to rent a new place to start working again, i just dont have the money right now to start over, ill need at least a full month of rent + deposit.
Friends, i have $0 cash available, ive already sold a couple of my woodworking tools just to get by, i am looking for work elsewhere but its really hard, with no employment history, no formal education and no one to help me with my son.
i am a hard worker, i truly am, i just need a break
so if you can find it in your hearts, please, anything will help
$1,500 usd will set me and my kid up for a comeback!, please help us.
