Hello all. I'm coming to you swollowing my pride as a proud woman. I am in a predicament that has put my family and I in a tailspin. I am not one to tell my personal business to my friends,family, and/or strangers. Here it goes. It all started last August when my husband lost his job. I who have had my job for nearly 20 years could not sustain our family of 5. I know, youre thinking she should be making good money. It is quite opposite as I work for a non profit organization supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. In December, my car was repossessed with only 1300 to pay off. I lost 17000. We were having a horrible time with the landlord we had with some really shady stuff, going back and forth to court. Many more little unlucky things occured. My children were getting sick constantly due to mold in our home that I had to pay for testing and nothing had been done by the landlord. In march, taking my eldest daughter to the urgent care I slipped and fell in my parents driveway with her in my arms. I twisted my body and contorted it in a way I broke my leg in 3 places requiring a rod and nails and being off of work 6 weeks without pay. During all of this my husband had some issues and had to go to Escanaba Mi with his family so the house we were living in we had to be out on March 31st. I had no one except a close friend came through and her and I cleaned packed as best as we could. I had to come up with money I didn't have to pay for trash pickup ,unpaid bills, and did not get our 1000 deposit back. I stayed with my mom and step dad with my children and tried to heal my leg. I had to go back to work super early. I was on crutches and was wearing a boot. A lot of pain I went through. The kicker is my step dad is retiring they sold their house and are slated to move to Florida in early august. I can't sustain here by myself. I already had to use my 7 year Olds hockey money to put down on a vehicle. I can't look my son in the eye and say he can't play the sport he loves and excels at. Also, we have to move to Escanaba for family support and my husband. My son will now be 7 hours away from his father. This has been so jolting, scary, embarrassing and words I will not say. I need some assistance with moving my family's belongs to the UP and my son needs his hockey money. If anyone could help, the money will be used for good causes. Our new start and a happy 7 year old. His smile makes my world go around. Thank you for your selflessness. The Young's
