These past few weeks have been a real challenge for our family. We have had two auto accidents in two separate cars and both are totaled. I am so grateful that in both accidents we walked away without any major injuries.

We are no strangers to struggle, because being a single parent can surely presents some struggles and being a single parent unemployed or underemployed is even more difficult. I know because I have lived it all.

This latest automobile challenge is one that is pretty big. In my case, as much as I loved my ‘Yota and as good as she had been to me… it appears that ‘Betsy’ is gone. Because of the age of the car and the number of miles, (376,000+) she is rendered a total loss. I am again grateful for all of those miles; going back and forth from Maryland to Georgia to see about my mother; AAU basketball games to give my daughter the childhood of her dreams as well as her friends; taking my elderly Aunts and Godmother to their errands and Dr. appts. Every mile brought memories.

I knew I would need to retire her, but just needed to be in a financial situation to afford another car. Well, I am not there yet. I spend about 16 hours of the day working two jobs to make ends meet and some times that is still tough. Therefore there is not money for a car note in the budget and not time to work additional hours to get it. Public transportation is not an option, because there is not any where I live that would get me to my job.

I’m very uncomfortable reaching out like this to ask for assistance, but I don’t know what else to do. I’m not looking to drive a Ferrari or a Lamborghini….just some reliable transportation that will handle my 60 mile commute to my job and maybe even to a few games out of town to see my daughter play. Currently when I go to visit her, I rent a car.

I’m grateful for and would appreciate any assistance that you can give and I am open to you sharing with others to assist as well. I know there is a blessing in this for more than just my family. Thanks so much for even your consideration.
