Act 5 - Final Chapter

I am a single mom, that has raised 4 children. 2 boys and 2 girls. I had my first child at age 18.  I spent my entire parental life focusing and thinking for my children because they could not do it on their own and was depending on me for everything. I was driven on making sure they had a much better life than I did, and teaching them to make better decisions than I did.
Teaching them to be respectful, independent, caring and most importantly getting their education.  The enjoyment I had was always being involved with my kids and their activities. I spent 34 years of having every thought be about my children. Not one thought during this 34 year span was only about me. There was no time,  space or money available for just myself. Please, don't misunderstand, I enjoyed every minute of it. There were some extremely hard times and some easy time.  Money was not always their, but I always found a way. I tried to make sure my kids had everything they NEEDED. I was very determined to see my kids through their ups and downs and high school.  College would be a personal choice. Fortunate for me, they all went and graduated college. The photo on my profile is my youngest son graduating from college with a Bachelor degree. None of them have ever been in any trouble while growing up. I give all thanks to my GOD. He looked out for my children in ways that I could not. Now, the are all out on their own living their individual lives and being successful. 
So, now hear I am at the of 54 trying to learn how to live life on my own. Learning how to think for just myself. It's not easy, when you have spent your life thinking for everyone else. I have made some what I thought were smart choice always to end up back to square one.  My hopes and dreams was to someday have a home that I can have to call my own and not have to worry about giving it up because the income has changed or is no longer their. 
I am currently working but I don't  make enough money to come up with a deposit, closing cost and any other fees that they want to include. With having all those kids, I was still able to manage a good credit score. Unfortunately, a credit score doesn't mean anything when their is no money. 
So I am pleading for help from anyone that can assist me with coming up with the funds to make a good deposit on a home. It would be a new construction and so far I am running into the same thing. 15K to 20K down.  That will allow me to stay within the monthly payment amount that I can afford each month.
I'm sorry, during the process of sincerely asking for donations, I forgot to inform everyone that the funds would be needed in 60 days (Dec 31st) to take advantage of the interest rate. 
This would also be good for a tax write off. 
Thank you, so much.
