Help Josh Barnaby

I am writing this on behalf of my husband, Josh Barnaby, who as most of you know is currently incarcerated. Most of you know that he is not one to ever ask for help. But he needs it now and is reaching out to try and save his home for his children and to get back on his feet upon his release in December. Josh and I both have made some very bad decisions over the last few years and we have both had to face the consequences and are taking responsibility for our choices. We have hurt our children tremendously and are in the process of restoring our relationships with them and rebuilding our family. Over the last year (while dealing with the consequences of our actions) we have both gotten sober, found God again in our lives, and are doing everything that we can to give our children the lives, and parents, that they deserve. In many ways this has all been a blessing in disguise. As much as it has hurt our children, we both are doing everything we can to better ourselves and our lives. Josh has used all of his savings on lawyers to avoid prison time, and I am currently taking care of the boys on my own until he is released from jail. We are very blessed and fortunate to have had so many people support us, love us, forgive us, and help us out through this terrible time in all of our lives. We thank you so very much for all that you have already done for us. However, we are now in the position where it is close to being over, but where we are close to losing our family home that we are desperately trying to save in order for our children to return to their family home. The renters that have been staying in the house have gotten behind on the taxes and the mortgage and it is close to being repossessed. So, he has asked me to ask for help to save our home. It means so much to our boys to be able to return home when this is all over. And we know that it is not anyone’s responsibility but our own to clean up the mess we have made. But we are asking for help if you would be able to. We would appreciate any help we can get. More than you may know. We have gotten through the worst of this experience and are just trying to hold on for a couple more months until he can be back out here, working and taking care of his boys again. Neither one of us is in a position right now to pay anyone back. But whenever we are back on our feet we want you to know that we will take every measure to pay back the favor, any way we can. God has blessed us with so much and we know how blessed we are to be given the chance to do right by our children again. And that is what we plan to do. But it is so important to us that we are able to save the boys family’s home and to continue to restore our family. We thank you in advance for nay help you may be able to give and we just want to say that we are sorry we have gotten ourselves in this position and plan to live our lives from here on out sober, and with God first in our lives. Thank you. God bless you.
