User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI am truly grateful for the help I have received. I would have been grateful for any amount given to go towards my home but with everyone�s help I received the full amount I needed. I was not sure If I was ever going to get caught up and was worried but with your help it has taken a lot of stress away. Perfect timing because both my girls will be starting school and I can now get them some school supplies. This has opened my eyes to realize there really are caring people in this world and any chance I get I will pay it forward. Thank you for helping my family we are so truly thankful for the donation you made. You could have used the money for anything and instead you helped us. I cannot express in words how grateful I am.

I Missed Some Work Due to Complications from Childbirth. Now the Bank Wants to Take Our Home.

My Story:

I am a mother of 3 beautiful children. My 8-year-old daughter is very book smart, loves sports, and is the sweetest little girl you could ever meet. I have a 6 year old daughter very energetic and helpful she is the second mom of the family. She thinks she is in charge. I have a new born son that I just gave birth to on March 14 of this year. Both the girls love helping with their little brother especially my youngest daughter. I work full-time as a Veteran customer service representative assisting with getting past due bills paid that were not originally covered by the VA.

My ex left when I was 4 months pregnant with our son. Once he left I began living pay check to pay check and worked all the way until I was 39 weeks pregnant. I planned on going back to work after 2 weeks of giving birth because I would have to take an unpaid leave of absence. Unfortunately, during birth I experienced what is called coccydynia pain. It was so bad that in the hospital the doctors advised me not to hold my son while standing or walking in fear that I would drop him because I could barely stand myself. With me being out of work so long I am unable to get caught up on my bills without help. I need Modest Needs help to get caught up on my mortgage payment. We've never been behind before but the bank is threatening us and I'm really, really scared.

I've returned to work now, so if you can please help save our home, I can promise you this won't happen again. I am a responsible individual who saved up to buy my house. This funding will help me continue being able to provide for my children and show them that they too can accomplish things and everyone needs help from time to time. Once I am able to help someone else in need I will pay it forward.
