I am a single mother of 3 and struggling. I have always taken care of my children and helped anyone when I was able to. Now that I can’t help because I no longer have the means to unfortunately no one is there to help me in my time of need. I have had to let my 2 older children stay with their grandma while my 3 year old and I have been homeless in the streets or staying in ER waiting rooms of hospitals at night. I have recently found a job at a hotel and get a discount for us to stay but now my hours are being cut and I fear we will be out in the streets again. I feel like a horrible parent because I donate plasma, work and try to clean homes when I can just to get us by but it seems as if it’s never enough. Expenses such as the hotel, food, sitter and necessities seems like I work just to be broke every week. I am on the verge of giving up but I'm trying so hard to stay positive because my children motivate me to keep pushing and striving to see better days. Sometimes I sit and think of the movie Pursuit of Happiness and I feel as if I am on the same mission to be better, live well and keep working hard to get there. Please if you could help even a little it would be a prayer answered for my children and I. This would be life changing and we promise to pay it forward as a thank you. We hope to hear from you soon!
