Its like a heavy weight was lifted off my shoulders and I can breathe now. During this time, I was able to start a budget plan through an app to help me manage my funds better and have funds saved for rainy days. Again, I would like to Thank you all for assisting my family with this blessing you guys took time to help others. Thank you.

I Missed Daycare Payments When My Daughter Got Sick. Please Help Us Catch Up So I Can Keep Working!

My Story:

I am a single mother of one daughter. She is 4 years old and definitely keeps me on my toes. She is already really gifted with arts and crafts and she is learning sign language with the help of her school. She teaches me a few things everyday. As for myself, I am a service coordinator for a health plan and currently taking online courses as well. As soon as I can, I plan to go to school at night, earn a degree, and make a better life for me & my little girl.

A couple of months ago, my daughter got really sick. I had to call out from work for about a week, and because I don't have any PTO, my next paycheck was cut by about half from the time I was off. This caused a huge problem for us, especially with daycare. In order for me to be able to work full-time, I have to keep my daughter in daycare. Well, I was counting on that check pay for daycare, and when it came cut in half, I couldn't pay the full amount. Since then, late fees have been piling up, and I just got notice that if I don't pay the bill I owe in full by the end of the week, my daughter won't be able to go to daycare anymore. If I have to stay home to take care of her, we'll lose more money, and eventually I won't even be able to pay for rent. We're in a downward spiral, all because my daughter got sick, and I really need help to catch up with daycare before I have to quit my job to care for my daughter.
