Where do I even began, how can I express how I and my family are feeling right now. When I first saw that I was funded I instantly began to cry. I am truly thankful for the help. I was up many nights trying to figure out how can I get out of this ongoing whirlpool. I have a full understanding that it is hard for everyone and that we all go through trials and tribulations. Just on the simple fact that you took the time to help someone else in need. Sends chills through my body and I would be forever thankful. You have given me hope that it's still good in the world and when I am in a better place, I to can give back. Again, thank you so much for your kindness and if I could give you a big hug I would. My family and I would be forever thankful for your kindness. I wish you nothing but peace and happiness!
I Missed Work After Losing My Baby at Childbirth, & I Need Help Keeping Our Home Please!
I'm a single mother of two small children. My oldest is 5 years old, and my youngest is only a year younger. They're both full of energy, and they give me so much energy too! Truly, my children keep me going every single day, and I'm so grateful for both of them. When I'm not spending time with them, it's because I'm working full-time as a customer service representative. Thankfully, my position allows me to work from home so that I can also take care of my two young children while I work.
I just recently lost my beautiful baby girl; she was born stillborn in November. The emotional toll that losing her has taken on me and my children feels insurmountable at times, and it's been very hard on us. Unfortunately, my job does not offer leave with pay, but under the circumstances I had to take time from work to heal mentally and physically. As a result of the time that I had to take off, I started to fall behind on a lot of our bills. Both my mortgage and my water bill are significantly behind, and I'm really worried that we're reaching a point where we could have our service shut-off or even lose our home entirely.
I'm very humbly asking for assistance with both our water bill and our mortgage so that I can finally get caught up again and avoid having our water shut-off and losing our home. Losing a child is something that you can never truly, or fully, recover from, but this assistance would give me a chance to stabilize our financial situation for the foreseeable future, and most importantly, it will allow me to continue to provide for my two young children. I will never forget the kindness that we're shown, and I could not thank everyone who supports us enough for the healing that this assistance will grant my family.
