We are still looking
September 21, 2016

We are still looking for a place to move too. Hopefully we can find something soon. We would really appreciate any and all help. God Bless See More

THE STORY:

Hi my name is Berta, on July 1st 2013, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Robert Julian with a Congenital Heart Defect (Basically only half a heart). Robert had to have his first open heart surgery at 4 days old and did amazing, on day 14 we were already planing on going home. That evening at only two weeks old, he coded twice and I almost lost him. He had to have another emergency open heart surgery to keep him alive. We have struggled with helping him with feeding as a baby, and now as a toddler being scared to eat solid foods, it took him much longer to learn how to walk, and all though he is getting help from the school district to learn to talk, he still can not put words together. He is finally growing and gaining weight and has started school. I am a single mother and have done a lot of it on my own. However the reason for this is that our current living situation is NOT suitable for a child like Robert's condition. When we moved in almost three years ago we had different owners and it was up to standards. As of now we have new owners who haven't fixed various holes that mice have made. which when it first started we were baffled. We have been getting a ridiculous amount of them, come to find out the covers on the outside of the house had fallen off and even tho when we complained they never noticed before? Our kitchen cabinets are falling apart, the doors and drawers are falling off and don't close correctly. The carpet in the whole house is lifting, and no matter how many times we try to clean the carpet it just stays dirty. At this point we Desperately need to move. However, with me not working due to being Robert's care giver and only receiving minimal SSI help and child support we can not afford to pay rent and a deposit and moving fees. My mother helps us a lot and she is who we live with or we wouldn't be able to have a roof over our heads. Unfortunately she is also disabled and receiving SSI. As you can tell we live a humble life and are blessed with each day and with we are given. There are months that we barely make it through and sometimes run out of food, but we are alive and doing good so thank God for that. We are looking for a smaller more affordable place to live so that we won't have to live like this anymore. BUT we need help trying to get into a safer, cleaner, more suitable home for all of us but mostly for my son. He needs a clean and suitable place to play, sleep, eat and enjoy life as much as possible. I would appreciate any and all help. We are looking for a 2-3 bedroom house/apartment in the county of Los Angeles for about $1300 and with your help we can afford to pay for moving costs and the deposit so that Robert can have a safe and clean living environment .... We appreciate any and all help God Bless you all ... You can also follow our story at www.facebook.com/HeartWarriorRobert
