Time to fly the coop

Hello, we are trying to raise money to buy a home. My Fiance is an Asylee from Burundi Africa who lost both her parents at a very young age to the genocide. Ever since the death of her parents she has been taking care of and supporting her three siblings. She is an incredibly hard worker, going to school full time and working three jobs in order to send money back to Africa to support her family. I have a nine year old daughter, work full time and go to school as well. We are set to get married in August of this year but are unable to afford our own home due to some many outside financial responsibilities. Every time we save any money for a down-payment we end up having to send money over seas and are unable to build any type of savings. We are currently living in my parents home but have outlived our welcome. My parents are retired and would like to sell their house and downsize, but are unable to because they know we would have no place to go if they did. We are both very hard working but can'take seem to get ahead no matter how hard we try. Please help us to stand on our own feet and to start our lives off in our own home. Thank you for your kindness and generosity, your money will go towards helping us build the foundation for the future of our family.
