I wish I could help, but I am in a simular situation - only I was evicted two days ago. I had a good job, but illness took that away. All I can do is pray for you and your family. I hope the new year brings you better fortune and that you can find some bit of happiness with your family at Christmas. Tamara
I have recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Between doctors' visits, hospital stays, and testing, I have been unable to find help with Christmas help with my children. We have moved over 10 times since Hurricane Ivan (we lost everything and received no help from anyone, even FEMA) and have had to slowly tried to rebuild, only to have this health issue occur. I have heard "we are out of funding" or "our list is full for this year" that I have lost all hope. All I want is a home that we can stay in ...and something for my kids at Christmas. Hailee is an Honor student at her school. She is bright and beautiful. Christian is in the eighth grade, working on high school level courses, and is very athletic. Their only problem is their mom. I can't work, or keep a job because of my illness. They deserve a better mom, and I can't give them that. If it wasn't for them, I would have given up completely. I have, at times, felt like walking into oncoming traffic. I have never gotten any child support from their dads, and at times, it feels like no one cares if we are even here.
Please help. I don't know what else to do. Catholic Charities will only help with children under 12 and Salvation Army doen't have room on their "Angel Tree". I don't even have a tree or decorations - that was lost during Ivan. I feel like a failure and a bad mom. Please help me save Christmas for them. You can call me at (850)723-9192. We were evicted Tuesday, so I don't have a permanent address. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
