I am so overwhelmed! These last 8 months have been the hardest of my life. Tougher than any duty station I have ever been assigned or anything that I have gone through to date. To have to set your pride aside and humbly ask for help in every aspect of your life is flat out embarrassing! But when you have a little person depending on you for EVERYTHING, you do not have time to wallow in self-pity. My daughter looks to me to be her all and I do not want to disappoint her. I am working so hard to pull myself up by the boot straps and your generosity in ensuring that our sometimes, temporary residence (my SUV) is functioning, makes my heart so full. And although I may not have much, I do realize that I have more than many. I have my faith, my health, and the unconditional love from my baby girl. I know that very soon I will be blessed with a new home and a new job, as long as I continue to stay positive & focused. Thank you so much for seeing me as a human being. I promise to pay it forward! God Bless :)
Coronavirus: Living in a Car with 7 year old Daughter. Please Help us.
I just recently filed for divorce after finding out my spouse was cheating. My daughter and I were kicked out of the only home we had and now we are struggling. My daughter is still able to attend school online and are able to we log into an internet hotspot locally. I try to make things as normal as I can for her, but it's a struggle. My daughter's other parent doesn't really want to deal with her, so I am left to step up and be the parent she needs and deserves.
Due to COVID I am unable to work at the moment. I have filed for unemployment, but no funds have been released to me as of yet. The only funds I have is the stimulus check, but I have been dipping into to that to pay for necessities but not food. I receive SNAP benefits for that. My vehicle is my only means to get around and sometimes it is our shelter for the night. To put it plainly, I am humiliated and ashamed that my daughter has to see me this way and go through all this. Kids are super resilient, all she knows is that she wants to be with her mommy. It would be great if Modest Needs could help with my car insurance payment.
Getting my SUV running in tip top shape will allow me to focus on finding housing and a better paying job. My SUV is the only thing that I own and if I don't have that, then I don't know what I would do next, so I have to keep it running. Thank you.
