Houston Hardships

When we moved to Houston it was on a sad occasion, my father was dying. I didn't know how much time I would have to spend with him but I knew that I wanted to get closer to him so that his last few months I got a chance to see him. We moved to Houston at the beginning of August so we've had our trials since we got here. First we had to go through hurricane Harvey. Then visiting my father and knowing that he didn't have much time. He passed away at the end of September. He was cremated but we had to wait to get him home and bury him with my mom... Then in November we Drove to Miami to bury him, so many expenses in such a short time. All the while I have been trying to find a job. The hurricane took out so many businesses and so many people were looking for work that this has not been an easy task. I have never been without work for so long but it has taken a toll on my family. it has been 6 months and still no income on my part. We have gone thru whatever savings we had. I am setting up this GoFundMe account to reach out to friend's. Our family has helped us as much as they can and we don't want to put a strain on them. We are about to lose our home and our cars and have lots of medical expenses due to my daughter and my diabetes. We have insurance but can't use it because We don't have the money to pay for co pays. We know that Houston is where we want to be but need a little help until we can get on our feet. We have helped so many people with the GoFundMe accounts that I'm hoping now we might be able to get some help for our family.
