A Drunk Driver Totalled Our Car! After Getting a New One, I Need Help Keeping Our Home!
I'm a single mother raising the two most amazing boys on my own. My oldest son is 14 years old, and my youngest is 10 years old. My 14-year-old struggles with ADHD and has a hard time keeping up in school, but he works so incredibly hard. My youngest son is autistic and is so sweet and loving. They have an unbreakable bond with each other and are truly inseparable. They always lift each other up when the other one is down, and they really keep me going too when I need it most.
I work full-time as a customer clerk, and I make enough to take care of our monthly expenses, but we do tend to live paycheck to paycheck. The pandemic has also been a struggle, so I had almost nothing set aside when one night we were in a horrible car accident. We were hit by a drunk driver, and our car was completely totaled as a result. I didn't have any other option but to get a new vehicle because our car is our only means of transportation. Without it, my children can't get to school, and I can't get to work. My credit isn't in the best shape so affording a new vehicle really took a toll on us financially, and now I've fallen behind on the mortgage payment.
Right now, I just feel stuck; it feels like every time I put out one fire, another one comes along and threatens to take everything from us. I'm humbly asking for help to get us out of this situation by getting assistance with our mortgage payment. I'm worried that this situation could spiral out of control and that it could threaten our ability to hold on to our home in the near future. My sons are my entire world, and I truly can't imagine a situation where we're out on the streets with nowhere to go. Your help would keep that nightmare from becoming a reality, and for that we would feel truly blessed. I know that with this help, we can make it through this situation and get back to a place where we're able to pay your generosity and kindness forward.
