We are reaching out in this time because we are in dire need of help. This year has been full of transition, re-birth, and transformation... thus making it not the easiest by any means.
Dylan and I have been partners, lovers and best friends for 2 1/2 years now. Last winter we went to California to travel and WWOOF (world wide opportunties on organic farms) which was an outstanding experience. Such a blessing! It was my first time on the West Coast, and my first Maine winter, missed. On our travels, we discovered that we are going to be bringing a radiant, beautiful little girl into the world as of January 18th! Coming back to our home, we hoped and hope still... to grow, flourish, and gain our roots with our little family. Our Siberian Husky, Nova, is also with us. Since we have been back, it has been one stumbling block after another. After needing to buy a car and finding one (in which we borrowed money, that we owe now...), it soon gave us more trouble than needed. A new transmission ($1,200), a new CV-shaft, and now on the first snow the brake lines have failed and are leaking. In our attempt to transition/move to Southern Maine life keeps throwing us under the bus. We are here, working and trying to save for a home to live, prepare, and nest in. Alas, we only have a place to stay till Decemeber 20-23. With our daughter due anytime now, and the need to stay warm and be able to gain roots in order to move forward, it has been a horrible, anxiety ridden weight upon our shoulders. With continuous car troubles, need to buy food, gas, and also trying to save large amounts in order to move into an apartment in a limited amount of time, we are hanging by a thread. I will soon no longer be working, and Dylan is going to have to pay for most of our expenses, while I remain with our daughter. This is a lot of pressure. We really just need a BOOST! Instead of one thing after another putting us back even further from our goals... We need a push forward to get us on the upscale. Most places asking for a deposit ($700-975), and also first month rent ($700-975) and pet deposit upon being able to move in, has made it impossible to find somewhere for us. In this holiday season, we won't be able to afford to buy things for our friends and family, though we will be crafting. It saddens me that I cannot do such things for them though. We really need any help that you may be able to provide. The amount posted is an overall goal because with our daughter coming into the world, and society being how it is, it shall be expensive. Within our growth as indivduals and also as a family, we hope to help the world, communtity, and people we come across. We owe money to other people struggling as well, and wish to be able to help them back. Please help us afford a place to call home... the looming winter chills and storms are making it even more stressful as the clock ticks... Once we have a home, we can move foward together.
We want to be able to give BACK! But we need help in order to be able to do that. Thank you so much for reading, and considering, and also giving. It will never, ever be forgotten or unappriciated. Many warm blessings & love to you all. If anything, just keep us in your hearts, and minds, and perhaps manifest some positive vibes and send it in our direction :)
Joanna, Dylan, the little one and Nova <3
