Trying to reach the top
Organized by: Kris Fisher
This is the first time in a very long time that I have had to ask anyone for help in the past ten years. I am a single/divorced mother. I divorced my children's father over five years ago because I was the ONLY one working and he refused to stand on his feet and be the father/husband and provider that our family needed. Before divorcing him I bought me a car, which wasn't in very good shape but it ran and it was MY car. I ended up losing that car because he had stolen money, money that I didn't have and that I couldn't replace, off of someone very close to me and me being who I am and that being my husband, I felt obligated to pay it back. I didn't have the extra cash, I had two kids whom I couldn't take that from! So me being who I am, signed my car over. It was a hunk of junk, but it WAS mine. I ended up getting a ticket one evening while driving my grandfather's vehicle, I didn't have the money to pay that either. I am still a single mother of two, trying to get my license back so I can't get my kids to and from point A to B instead of catching the bus or asking for rides. I am trying to further my education and go back to school to study Criminal Justice, I an trying to do a lot of things to better my life so that my kids can have a better future than what I had growing up. But I am at the bottom, rock bottom. I am at the very bottom, I want to give up, but I keep holding on to the tiny bit of faith that I have. My mother took off out of state, my dad is out of state, I have no one. No one but me and my two kids. So if anyone of you are feeling generous and wouldn't mind lending a hand, it would be, more than I can put into words, greatly appreciated!
