User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI am not sure I have the words that will do any of you justice. This entire process from the miscarriage, to finding Modest Needs, to actually being helped by people who do not know me or my family simply because they saw a need, to say the least its been a whirlwind of emotions that I haven't been able to control and process. I simply have no words. Thank you, I sincerely thank you and my family thanks you. I hope one day our baby will come into this world and when he/she does I will tell them how long I waited to meet them and that their are good people like you all out there in the world that helped with their journey of my becoming their mommy. Thank you again.

Mom of 3 Had a Miscarriage and Now needs help with Medical bills

My Story:

I live with my Husband and part time we have his three beautiful children, Adrianna 12, Ava 9, Bennett 4. I am their bonus mom, they call me K-me for my 'mom name' they are the sweetest kids and we were hoping to expand the family by one more one day.

Well, it is a hard story to share and I wish I could share it in its entirety. On our journey to have a baby I have experienced 3 miscarriages. One miscarriage actually needing a D&C to remove the baby. The medical expenses I have faced from this loss were not expected. I did not think there would be bills of the extent after losing a baby. We got lucky with some small bills, or bills we were able to make payments on. But we recently got hit with a bill from the company that helped figure out why we miscarried. It is $660 and we do not have that money.

We need Modest Needs' help to pay our miscarriage medical bill. It is due 12/11/2019. Between all of the other medical bills I have received from this tragedy, plus just every day living expenses we can not afford to pay this bill.

You would think holding this grief alone is pain enough, but they don't tell you about the medical bills that come after. Sorry your baby died, now you have to pay us for taking care of it for you.This one arrived today. It's funny how much your healing can come to a complete halt by a simple piece of paper in the mail. If we received help with this it would mean the world to me and my family. Its so hard not to feel like its my fault. Every new bill we receive is another slap in the face, and I see my husband look at it and he feels defeated but knows he needs to act okay because I feel the blame falls on me. Like I couldn't successfully have a baby and now its my fault that we are stuck in this never ending hole. It would truly make a difference for us financially and emotionally.
