This person has left the following thank you note:

I am overwhelmed with joy that you have decided to help me, a single mom, keep my son in childcare, while I work to get our other bills paid on time. I never would have imagined that my marriage would fall apart and that I would be in this position of needing financial help. Thank you for helping me teach my children a valuable lesson, which is that they should never put up with any form of domestic abuse- even if it means that they have to go without things for a brief period. But that with the right supports and assistance (Modest Needs), they can come up ahead. Your generosity means so much and I could not thank any of you enough. Fondly, LT

Child's Father Causing Legal Fees, Please Help Single Mother With Daycare Payment

My Story:

I am a divorcee with two children. My 9 year old son is very artistic. He enjoys taking art classes and playing with his friends. He also likes to create his own stage performances and has expressed interest in attending the local high school for the arts. My 12 year old daughter is quite intellectually curious and is working hard at the local magnet middle-high school. She is also interested in the arts and socializing with friends. I have been working full-time at the VA hospital in the research department. I really enjoy serving our Veterans and helping out in the community. However, I work a second job due to the deficit I started carrying with increased bill payments.

Ever since my divorce, my ex has taken me to court on a number of different issues, including to decrease his child support payments. I have spent way too much money for legal fees. I also pay student loans every month and while being enrolled in public service loan forgiveness, these payment still increase every year along with my rent. Because of all this, I am struggling to pay for my son's after school childcare fees. I need Modest Needs to help with this.

This funding will have a long term impact on my situation. I will be able to rest a bit easier knowing that I did in fact make the right decision in leaving the children's father, in spite of this struggle. I will have peace of mind knowing my son is well taken care of while I am at work. Thank you so much for separating time to read this.
