My name is Derick Wilkins. To be honest I never seen myself asking for help like this. Usually I’m the one wanting and able to help others. I just lost my mom to stage 4 lung cancer on may 23rd of this year. Which is a hard month for me anyways. My sisters birthday falls on may 26th. Which she passed away in 2011. I am currently living with the mother of my kids. She left me three weeks prior to me losing my mom. So I took a big hit of hurt all at once you could say. Due to these tragic events I lost my job. My car got repossessed. I ended up finding another job. But just lost that due to me not having a vehicle. Now the mother of my kids takes kids to school and goes to work herself. We have four kids. With that being said we had no room to fit me as well to get me to work. So now I am staying at home watching our youngest to save on childcare. Unfortunately that doesn’t make up for the income i could be making if i was able to work. It has helped somewhat me being home. Because the other three kids get off the bus at 4. Which is before we would both be off usually. so we haven’t had to stress about having someone get them off the bus. To add to all this I now see a psychiatrist once a month to help me stay stable after all these events happened. I became an emotional wreck. I have tried everything to work things out with my children’s mother. She is back and forth with the idea. So its complicated things as well as me being able to help more with our kids. Due to us still living together but complicatedly separated. As for why I’m asking for help financially is to get a cheap car just to get me to work and or get me my own place in town where I can walk to a job until I’m able to get me a vehicle. Which bothers me to say that since I have kids and need a vehicle to be able to see them or be able to do things with them. To whoever that reads this I want you to know i am a great dad to my kids and have a good heart. I do not live off of the government or ask for handouts. So this is entirely new to me. I have prayed more than one could imagine. Unfortunately no answers have came about. I came across this site today and figured maybe this could be the answer to my prayers. So even if you arent able to help me. Please say a prayer for me and my family. My grandma told me it’s always better when you have others pray for you as well. Thank you for taking the time to read about my situation and god bless. For those that would like to help me. This site said I had to put a PayPal link on this. So I just got one before writing this. So not scamming anyone. Just an average father of four kids who has hit a really rough patch in his life. Thanks again.
