This person has left the following thank you note:

I cannot begin to express how extremely grateful our family is that you made a sacrifice and helped fund our need. This has been a trying time for our little family, and to know that we will be able to pay our car payment due to your generosity takes a tremendous amount of stress away. Having this tool will now help us get back on track and we look forward to be in a place where we can hopefully soon, pay it forward to other deserving families. Thank you and God Bless. Sabrina

Military Family with New Baby Need Help with Vehicle Payment

My Story:

I am married to an active duty military member. I recently gave birth to our first child, who is now 2 months old. We also have two dogs, Max and Isabella.

I learned I was pregnant when I was 26 weeks along, and my husband was deployed. Prior to his arrival back in the US, I moved across the country to be with him. Not having much time to prepare for a child, and giving birth at 36 weeks due to complications, we fell behind on our monthly car payments. The burden of moving, and caring for a new baby has been stressful on our small, but growing family.

We are asking for help to catch up with our car payment.. We have made sacrifices in other areas of our lives to accommodate most of our financial needs, but we are not able to make up the past-due balance we owe for the vehicle. We fear that, without help, we could face repossession and my husband would have difficulty getting to work.

Your help would have a positive impact on our household, and provide a stabilizing effect on our finances. It will bring us current with our car loan and give us a sense of peace. Having a new baby has been stressful, and to have the financial stress taken away would be a such a blessing to our situation. We've never needed to ask for help like this before, and it is hard to be in this kind of position. We would be truly grateful for your assistance.
