Raising The Twinz By Myself

I've been told that sometimes you can't take the world on by yourself and you sometimes have to ask for help. Today is the day I swallow my pride and ask for help. I don't care about me when it comes to making their lives easier at any cost. Some of you may know my story better than others, and it has not been one of the easiest over the last year. I've now had the Twinz ( Alexandria and Sebastian ) living with me for the last 8 months and I've always done my best to keep them happy and healthy with all their medical issues. The circumstances with me taking them has been a hard one. I've done my best to stay on top and if you know me, you know I'd do it over a thousand times to see them happy every day. Financially doing it myself over the last 8 months has had me even question how I've made it this far. But this last month has taken a severe turn with a slow month at work and needing to find a place for Alexandria, Sebastian and I to move to by the end of the month. I need to try and stay in the area where were living because I was able to secure help from Toronto District School Board, The principal and her teacher to help Alexandria with her day to day transitions at her school. However I'm willing to move anywhere and commute them there until the end of the school year. I have exhausted all of my options.It was suggested a while back that I turn to this, but I guess my pride and self esteem spoke louder than me attempting this. With everything that's transpired over the months I want a better year for the kids than the last. I want to be able to remain keeping them happy and move on with life. So I'm reaching out to my friends and family for help. If you have any personal questions please PM me. Thanks everyone for the continued love and support that you've given the Twinz and I over the past 6 years, more so over the past 8 months. I'm happy to know that I have real people in the Twinz lives let alone mine. Mark S. Brathwaite
