User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeHow could 'words' ever describe our humbled and grateful hearts at this time of need in our lives?! I realize that, sometimes in life, folks can end up in very rough times, and here we are smack-dab in the middle of such hardship! We are BEYOND grateful for the love you have shown to us and we are anxious to be able to pay this forward when we're on our feet again. My husband will be returning to work on Sunday and he is in a very good frame of mind and doing well. The place he is/was at has been so very good for him - very professional, fulfilling and thorough! I look forward to things looking up in our life as a family in so many ways! GOD IS GOOD! In My Most Sincerest Heart, Paige

We're Struggling to Keep Our Phone Service While my Husband is in Rehab to Treat His PTSD.

My Story:

My husband and I have an 18-year-old daughter with mental, social and emotional issues. I stay home to help her with her ongoing struggles with anxiety and sensory processing disorder. She has recently been diagnosed with a cardiac syndrome called POTS. My daughter has many gifts despite her disabilities like riding her horse, playing piano, painting and sketching. She is currently trying to finish online high school, and I remain at home with her because of her mental state and the danger that it poses to her well-being.

After deciding that it would be best for me to stay home with our daughter, we became reliant on living paycheck to paycheck. We were doing okay until recently when my husband had to check himself into rehabilitation. He was struggling heavily with alcohol abuse and was diagnosed with PTSD. I have faith that he will get better, but during his time away, we will definitely feel a lot more strain to get by financially. We're struggling to keep up with our phone bill right now, and I'm worried that it could be disconnected soon.

Losing our phone service would be very difficult for us for two reasons. First, we live in a rural area and don't have any means to communicate beyond our phones in case of an emergency. Second, my husband is counting on being able to communicate with us while he is going through rehabilitation, and we want to be a source of strength for him while he battles addiction. This is why we would be so humbled and grateful to receive assistance with our phone bill. Truly, your help would see us through a very difficult time, and for that, I want to thank everyone who lends us a hand.
