Helping a Single Mother
Organized by: Shelby Denton
Hi, my name is Shelby and I am a single mom of a two year old boy and a four month old baby girl. I am married but my husband choose drugs and alcohol over his family and has been gone since December. I work full time as a cake decorator and I only make $8.50 an hour. We have lost our apartment and we are temporarily staying with my parents. I have soul custody of both children and now there dad has hired a lawyer to get joint custody so I also had to get a lawyer because these babies deserve to be in a stable, healthy environment. Right now there dad is $5000 dollars behind in child support and I'm asking for help because I'm struggle to buy my babies diapers, clothes they need, formula because WIC doesn't cover enfimil and that's the only formula that my daughter can have, I pay for daycare so I can work. I just had high grade cancer cells removed from my cervix's and I have no insurance. I have no help from my family, my step dad is in stage 5 kidney failure so they cannot help me. I'm very desperate right now and I'm trying my hardest to take care of my babies but one income isn't enough.
