Please help to get my family's life back on track
Organized by: Nicole LaTorre
I'm just an ordinary woman trying to help my family. About 3 years ago my mom came to live with me,and she was coming off of drugs. We took care of her for a year,without expecting ANY kind of help. Her getting her life together was a gift to us all. Now, a year ago, my sister separates from her boyfriend. She accused him of being abusive. Naturally, I opened my door to her and her to young children 2,and 5 years old now. Mom started working, my girlfriend got her a job at Red Lobster. Life was Good!!! Bills and rent were paid early. It felt so good. All at once, everything came crashing down.My hours at work got cut to One day!! After being there 8 years! I gave my life to that place.. I begged and pleaded went straight to the big boss; when no one else would answer my questioning. They finally put me up to 3 days a week. Which is still horrible, but better than 1! They plan to close the department I work in. My girlfriend lost her job, was able to collect unemployment for 6 mos, because they were at fault for letting her go. Shortly after, my mom ends up in the hospital for a week, and was put on oxygen. She was out of work for months and the bills just piled up, while I'm the only one who can provide at this time. She finally was cleared to go back to work yesterday!!! Yeayyyyy! She has always had a problem with her pulsox. It gets low within two steps. She just has to take it easy. She rolls silverware a few days a week, which will help. My girlfriend heard back from one job that will pay for her to get her cdl licence! God is Good! All the time! I just hope, we don't lose our house. Our landlord has been saying they want to put it back on the market. I don't blame him, BC when we moved in about 3 years ago... They NEVER wanted to rent. We had planned on buying within 6 months. It seemed reasonable. As time goes on, things come up. Car breaks down, ferret or dog needs to go to the vet. I also care for 2 dogs, a few cats, 2 ferrets, a bunny, :-) my son has a few lizards, and a turtle. We love life, and Anything that breaths. I pray you folks would help me, get back on our feet. The house alone is $30,000. Any dollar amount would be greatly appreciated! Thank You! God Bless!!!
