I hope whoever is reading this , is doing well in every aspect of life!
My name is Simona, I am 19 years old. I have a 3 year old daughter Hailey which is why I am asking for money. I became pregnant at 15 years of age and because of my beliefs against abortion, there was no chance I wouldn’t keep the baby, no matter how hard it would get.
We have got by as much as we could but the worst thing being a mother, especially a young one..is to understand that you can’t give your child not only what they want but also need.
The biggest reason for me doing this is because we do not have enough funds to put our daughter into a daycare. Daycare would mean that I would have time and time means I could start work myself and earn for my family.
I have a partner who works really hard as a pizza delivery driver but the bills are way too big to have any money left after pay. Also, we cannot take any loans as we would have no chance of paying them back because of the enourmous interest rates and the fact itself that we don’t earn enough to even apply for one.
I don’t know…it has been too many years of struggle. My parents were drunks and didn’t care, then I couldn’t continue my education to get a good job and couldn’t start a job as it’s not possible to get a babysitter for free. It feels like an endless circle. I feel miserable, my partner has changed to the point where we barely talk. It is a constant struggle, sometimes you can even see it on my daughters face which is the most heartbreaking thing in the world.
If this is true, if there actually are people who help others, God bless you and your families. I can’t request anything, I can only beg. It is quite disappointing what we have become as a species. Equal opportunities for different circumstances would patch this world and the whole humanity. It feels so demeaning to beg for something. Especially for something that you as a parent should have taken care of. Whoever is reading this – Thank you for reading, even if you can’t help. I hope this world will change soon so we can help each other even more.
