When it rains, it pours..

My name is Courtney, and I am a newly single mother of 2. Not by choice. I have an 5 year old boy, Daniel, and a 3 year old girl, Sophia. 

Their smiles are the ONLY thing keeping me
going thru horrific time. 

My husband, their father, has left us. And I
wish I could say for a younger, more attractive 
woman. But I can’t, because he left me for my best friend. My best friend of 21 years.  So not only have a lost my husband, I’ve also lost my
best friend, and my children’s god mother.  

2020 has already been a tough year for myselfand millions of others, I lost my job due to 
covid back in March, with no foreseeable 
return.  Before covid and before he left, I was planning on going to school, but he ruined thatas well, as now I have zero help with my babies. 

I didn’t want to resort to asking for help like
this, but after all the events, I’ve hit a brick
wall. I dont have any family members to turn
to, and the friends I do have are mostly single mothers themselves. 

I really need help with food, school supplies, 
kids clothing, rent, car payments, which I’m so far behind on I’m sure they will be knocking on my door soon to take the car away, insurance, 
hydro.. I’m so buried right now I feel like just
giving up... but this isn’t about me. This is about Daniel and Sophia.  

I truly believe in Karma, I try to be the best i 
can be to everyone, even strangers. I’m really hoping karma will save us. I’ve exhausted all 
resources to try to be able to give my kids a 
comfortable, new life without their father, so I thought I’d try go fund me out. 

Thank you for your time in reading my short
story, with all that’s happened to us, I could
write a book, and didn’t want to get too far 
into details, and out of respect, he still is my
children's father, which held me back from 
exposing all he has done to us. 

Please everyone stay safe, and healthy. 

May god bless us all.
