Thank you so much everyone!!!! I just got the email saying my need has been funded and couldn't help the tears that flowed. Since I posted my need, my daughter has come to live with me full time, and I get no help from her dad or the father of the other teenager living with me. God has been supplying new work that keeps me able to work from home so I can be available for my children, but the bills have been piling up. This will help soooo very much. Thank you for using your hard-earned money to help us out. Thank you! I appreciate every one of you, and I WILL pay it forward. Thank you!

Single Mother of 2 Needs Auto Repairs

My Story:

I am a single mother with two teenage children, a girl and a boy. We are a Christian family and love to serve others and work outside. My daughter is a junior in high school who is in band and wants to be a preschool teacher. My son is in eighth grade and he loves baseball, disc golf and wants to run his dad's business when he grows up. I work for myself.

Last fall my bipolar disorder reared its ugly head. My doctor also figured out that I have brain damage from an accident I was in as a child. I used up all of my savings, including the money that was supposed to pay my 2016 taxes, to live on while recovering. I am just now getting to where I can work enough to cover all of my bills, but am also spending about $250 on doctors visits and medications. Two weeks ago, one tire on my car blew out, three needed to be replaced and I needed new tie rods. I used the last of my savings to pay most of the auto bill but I need Modest Needs help with the remainder. My mechanic is very compassionate, so it is due as soon as possible. I am trying to stay healthy and do what the doctor says but that also means every month is tight, and I don't want to start slipping behind. My children are living with their father most of the time, so now I have to also pay more child support to him.

Your help will take one piece of the stress off of my situation, and be greatly appreciated. I believe in paying help forward, so as soon as I can I will be doing something for someone else to pay your generosity forward. This funding will help me stay on track with my recovery.
