Organized by: Cheryl Pralle

I don't know where to start. My daughter has been expected into UT of Austin. For some reason we can only get enough funds to pay her tuition, now we need help to pay her housing. I'm a single Mom for now for eight years. Have a dead beat ex-husband who hasn't seen his kids in that time. He has told me that the kids and I our dead in his eyes. There Dad lives in a fifth wheel camper on his brother's property. Rent free, all utilities free, goes to two different food banks. While I struggle from paycheck to paycheck. Just barely floating on top. But God has been good, I have to wonderful children. My son two years ago after graduating from high school he joined the Marines. Now my daughter just graduated from high school in the top eight percent of her classmates and number 22 out of 284 students. Carried an GPA over 4.0 all hour years. So very proud of the two of them. There Dad is so far behind in child support, which would pay the four years of college. He only works to have gas money, beer and a girlfriend when he needs one. Sure he had a job but he doesn't like being told what to do. In August he'll be 55 years old go figure and has nothing. He wanted a younger woman eight years and he doesn't have that anymore. Oh yea when we divorced his family wrote us off even the grandmother. They all thought it was my fault. They stood behind my ex but now is own brother would like him off their property. My daughter wants to take Anthropology as her major and Journalist as her minor. Alyson's long term dream would be to land a career job with National Geographics. I would like to see that come true for her. So I'm asking for help if anyone can. I have been turned down twice as a co-signer for her. Now I have no where to turn, this is her dream and I would like to give it to her. I'm not a good writer normally I would have my daughter check my spelling and phrases. My family can't help, I have two brothers who are deceased my mom is deceased as well. My Dad is in a nursing home he is 89 years old and on dialysis. I have another bother who wrote me off about 25 years old. and I have two sisters and one them wrote off the family over 35 years ago. My baby sister is helping taking care of our dad. She flies home a lot every year. I have the youngest children out of my family. My daughter and I are forty years apart. We have a great time though. I would not change anything about my children. I love them more than words could ever explain. Plus I'm so very proud of them too! They turn out great with what we had. They know I would give them the shirt off my back and then some. If any could please help it would be most appreciated and God Bless you. Prayers
