User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeAs I sit here in front of this machine the tears fall slowly, tears of relief, tears of joy and tears of appreciation for the beautiful gift of your humanity and your kindness. I hope you realize the value of the gift you have given us and the magnitude of the contribution you have made to our lives. My son and I will remain in our home, thanks only to you. Now - with the security of knowing that our home is safe I can put all my energy into my new job and focus on rebuilding all that has been lost during this difficult time and achieving some semblance of normalcy for both my son and my self. God Bless you donors and staff of Modest Needs...God willing we will someday help someone as you have helped us.

Single Mother Needs Mortgage Help

My Story:

I don't know where to begin except to say that I am tired. I don't sleep at night. I haven't slept a whole night through for weeks now. I wake up at 4 AM and worry until it's time to go to work. Everyday, I worry about what is going to 'go,' next.

I was unemployed for six months and I fell so far behind on everything that I just cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. I just started a new job and I have been working for three weeks. On my very first day, my telephone was disconnected so my first check went to clear that account.

I have to have a telephone because my young son can't be at home alone after school without one and my husband left back in November so it's just us now. My mortgage is a month behind, actually, as of today, it is two months behind. Next week I will be able to make one payment, and there goes another who paycheck.

I don't know if anyone can help us. Times are hard for everyone, but if someone out there could find in it their hearts to help us over this last hurdle, I would be most grateful. I am confident that if I get the mortgage caught up.

I'll be able to keep it up and it will not take me long to work on all the other little things. I would rest a little easier and be far more productive if I did not have to worry about my son and I joining the ranks of the homeless. Thank you and God bless.
