To whom it may concern:
My name is Stephanie and I used to be in a better place than I am now. After my mother died and my dad remarried and moved away, I had bounced from place to place until finally settling down with my boyfriend and his parents. It was great at first until we moved into an apartment with someone we thought was a close friend until he managed to swindle us out of all our money every time we got paid. We moved back in with his parents until we could get back on our feet and now they treat us like burdens even though we pay rent and pull our weight in anyway we can. I should also mention we have a baby girl on the way that we are very excited for, but it’s hard to be excited when trying to become financially stable again and nothing we do is working. As soon as we start getting close to our goals, something happens. My car breaks down, we get behind on a bill, his parents need something else from us because they don’t pay attention to where their money is going and they end up spending everything they have before paying bills, etc. I never thought it would come to making a post on a website asking strangers for money, but I’m so stressed out and I just want to be stable again. I want my boyfriend and I to be able to get our own place, provide for our little girl, and never have to struggle again. Hopefully this will be the only time I have to do this and I’m not asking for much. Every little bit helps. Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to read this and help me out.
