Family of 4 faces homelessness

Hi! We are the Gonzalez family. We are a young family of four (4), incluiding our 5 y/o and 6 mos. old baby (both girls). My husband and I got married in November, 2012 and soon after, we received the news that we were expecting our second baby. But within our happiness, we also received the news of a high risk pregnancy and a possible diagnosis of cervical cancer.Since we didnt have medical insurance and we didn't have a steady income, we decided to move to Texas after a job offer, so I could receive treatment and pre-natal care. By God's mercy, my baby was born perfectly fine and my tests results were negative for cancer. We both started working but a couple of months later our hours at work were cut down and WE NEED HELP. Becuse of this and between late fees, housing bills,medical bills and daycare, we have reached over $5,000 in debts. We are struggling to pay rent, our electricity was cut off and have no one to help us. We've been told by the administration of our apartment complex that we can't keep making partial payments or they will put us on the street. I am scared to death of ending up homeless! We have no furniture other than a dinner table and a crib that a friend gave us for our baby and we've been sleeping on the floor for over 6 months now. We've been told we do not qualify for government's help and we have very little money for food and daily expenses.

 I've never done something like this in my life but I am so scared and desperate and I don't know what else to do. If there is anyone reading this, please pray for us and pray for my babies.We will truly appreciate any help you can give us and even just a little prayer will make a difference.

Blessings to all,
-Myriam
