Please Help Me Save My Home!

UPDATE! Foreclosure proceedings are scheduled to begin on February 1st and I am scared to death.

I have lived in this house since June of 1999. I have poured my heart into it and it has brought me great joy and peace of mind. I am also the mother of two loving cats named Jack and Trixie. If I lose my home I am not sure where they will go.

2017 devastated my spirit. In June, my house was broken into twice, five days apart. The first time, I was home and actually confronted the burglars face to face, unarmed.

The savings I had to cover three months of mortgage payments was dissolved dealing with the aftermath and installing a security system. Not to mention the duress and fear associated with them returning again.

Survived depression, but had a job that paid less and became behind in my bills. Now, I am freelancing and getting back on my feet.

The goal of this fund raiser is to help me get back on track because I can't do it alone. Rest assured that I am not sitting on my laurels feeling sorry for myself and not generating income. I am; it is just not enough yet. I have resurrected my web development freelancing business and income is trickling in.

If you can find it in your heart to help me in preventing foreclosure, I will be forever grateful. I am also open to any job opportunities you may be privy to as well as website work you or a friend may need. And will pay it forward after I get back on my feet.

I am a proud and fiercely independent woman. I have always had the "whatever it takes to survive" attitude in life, and have managed to succeed until now. Keeping a roof over my head, paying my bills and putting food on the table have always been top priority, but hasn't always been easy. I have been the bread winner in every relationship and even when I divorced, I was able to handle it all.

Thank you for the love, compassion and support you all have shown me. It is deeply appreciated!

Peace & Love,
