I Adopted My Niece When Her Mother Died. Then I Lot My Job. I'm Working Now & About to Lose Home!
I am a single mother, raising my 11 year old niece who means the world to me. She is a very bright, funny and a well-adjusted child. She was orphaned due to the death of her mother and went through a lot, but she is happy with me now, and I love having her.
Taking in my niece definitely increased my monthly expenses, but I was able to handle that change until I was suddenly laid off. It took me more than 9 months to find a new job, and this gap in work was a very rough patch for us. I went from making OK money to being on unemployment, and that barely paid the bills with nothing left over even for food (we went to food banks). Now I'm back to work, but during this employment gap with a good new job, but during the nine months I was unemployed, I got behind on my mortgage and the bank is threatening to take our home. If that happens, my niece and I will be homeless, and we really don't have anywhere else to go.
I've just gotten another part time job to but it's not going to be let me earn enough money in time to save our home, so I'm here begging for your help to bring our mortgage current. If you can help with that, I can then can start putting money into an emergency savings fund like I used to have, and I'll be able to help others like me. I would truly appreciate any assistance that you can give at the present time. I would be very grateful and your help would mean a lot to us. Thank you!
