Married Couple With Newborn Needs Help With Electric Bill

My Story:

I am married with one new born infant. He is 4 months old and the light of my life. My wife was my first blessing, he was my second. Because of the injuries my wife has and her hypothyroidism she was told her body would not be able to bear children. She has been diagnosed with postpartum but with the help of our families and her psychiatrist she has been able to be a great mother. She was diagnosed with PTSD and it was hard for a while. We have managed to get through to but now I have received orders to Missouri for transfer to Active duty.

When my wife gave birth she went on maternity leave and was diagnosed with postpartum. I had to sometimes stop work and stay at home with her and our baby. It also stopped me from going from going to school at times. I had to stay on top of our bills and ensure she had all the right foods because she exclusively breastfed our son. We need your help with our electric bill during this time.

It will help take some pressure of me while we pack for the permanent move to Missouri. Your help will also allow me save more funds for the move, as we need a moving truck and move in costs. Your help would take a lot of stress of our family. Thank you.
