Starting Life Over
Organized by: Amanda Maas
Hello everyone my name is Amanda and I have 3 wonderful kids , Matthew 10 .. Julia 7 .. & Danny 5 . I have been with my best friend , my husband Alex for 14 years now. We are originally from ERIE , PA we recently moved down to Knoxville , TN in the beginning of February "2016" The reason was because we were struggling where we were , and my mother lived down here in Knoxville . She said , pack everyone up and come on down and stay with us we can help you out till you get back on your feet . Sounded great , so that's what we did , we got what we could and rented a car an came down . Within 1wk of being here Alex got a job in construction"roofing" which is his passion , the pay was good . I myself take care of our kids , an I work doing little side jobs as often as can be from babysitting to dog walking ect . Things started to look up for us finally after a good year of struggles . It was only 3wks that we were down here before my mother told us to get out of her house . She gave no reason or explanation besides get out , so we did . I would like to say that we have no family or friends down here we no noone really . We came to a motel , which coast us around $1,300 monthly , we also have to pay for food so it's a good $2,000 a month if not more and we are still currently here 3months later . It is sooo hard to get ahead and save money and get into a place when so much money has to be sent out . To make matters even worse (sigh) my husband lost his job last week . We are so scared / terrified and not knowing what were going to do , what's going to happen . So that's is why we are asking for your help . We need a boost alittle help to get started again , we are trying to get into a place , the sooner the better , 5 people living in a small hotel room , 3 which are kids under the age of 10 is just so hard . We just want to live and have a life for us and are kids . So we ask you , please !! If there's anyway u can help us to get are start again , it is greatly appreciated , thank you so much and God Bless You . ---- Amanda , Alex , Matthew , Julia & Danny .
