My name is michael and im in a relationship with a wonderful lady by the name of tanisha. I have 3 wonderful kids of my own and she has 4 of her own. As a family of 9 including us of course we have hit an all time low in our lives. We just moved into a 3 bedroom home a little over a 2 months ago and we both were homeless before we were able to get into this home. As it turns out ive been laid off from my job for 3 months and the bills have stacked up on us to the point that i have no idea how long we can even hold on to this house with every odd stacked aginst us. Ive been searching for work constantly and and even been doing small jobs like cutting grass to be able to help as much as i can with bills and to provide food for us all. Its really hard. The car i have is one day away from rusting apart and the pressure of everything has been taking a toll on our relationship. Now im a man of god and do believe everyday that things can and will get better for us. I want to ask her to marry me but cant bring myself to do it just yet until i can get us stable. We do recieve food from some food banks in town and family helps when they can. With this being said its just still not enough to get us through. I dont want to sound like im begging for help but in this case i dont know where else to turn. So with any donations ill be able to get us a family vehicle and possibly travel out if town to search for a decent job to help support me and my family. Our current light bill is almost 5000$ and have recieved a ten day shut off notice. Water bill is 200$ and rents due on the 1st..wow. Hit after hit. I know the lird is testing us and i havent given up hope yet. Our kids range in ages of 1 and a half up to seven years of age. Its summer and i cant even take us to the store for ice cream. It really breaks my heart and makes me feel less than a man to not be able to do the small things that mean the world to kids. We just need a helping hand getting ahead. Thank you.
