Hi. I'm not sure how to go about this but I will swallow my pride and just put it out there. I am a 31 year mother of two brilliant and beautiful children. I have a 12 year old daughter and a 9 year old son. They are my everything. I am a reseller on eBay and that has been my source of income since 2014. I have been working on rebuilding my credit so that I could purchase a vehicle of my own, etc. I thought things were looking up for us but boy, was I wrong. I never thought we would be in this situation but life sometimes takes crazy turns. We were in a stable home for over 5 years but you simply cannot control what people decide to do.
My kids and I are in dire need of immediate help. As of this morning, we are homeless. Our whole life..gone. Everything we knew. We were kicked out of the home that we've been in. The officer informed me that we could stay but we were told by one of the family members that if we did, she would make life a living h*** for myself and my children. I could not have my kids stay in that situation. We have nowhere to stay because my mother's home was recently destroyed by Hurricane Michael. We have no other immediate family/friends to stay with. We are currently in a motel but cannot afford to stay longer than two days. We do not even have a vehicle to stay in. All we have is each other and the four kittens we were fostering inside. Being animal lovers, we couldn't stomach leaving them to be neglected. We also have beloved pet cats outside that we had to leave behind. I am an online reseller so I do have work available but if I cannot retrieve my inventory, that will not be an option. All of our belongings are still at the home (where we were) and if not retrieved soon, we have been told they will be thrown away or destroyed. I've honestly never been so scared. I have work available and am willing to work but when you are starting from scratch, it is hard to stay afloat. I feel like I have failed my children. I hate asking for help and even taking this step was extremely hard for me. I realize that this is no one's problem but ours but I wasn't sure where else to turn. I would like to find somewhere cheap for us to move in to for now. (Or at least be able to rent a UHaul & storage unit for my things). From there, I can work from home until I am able to find outside work. If anyone can find it in their hearts to help, you will be helping two very special kids in this crazy rollercoaster of a life. Thank you in advance for your time.
