Josh has always preserved with getting things done. We had hit hard times, with a job loss and we had to move in with my family for a period of time. It wasn't working out, so we moved in with his parents for a short period of time. Than in 2010/2011 we lived in a house that we were renting, and was taken advantage of our kindness. In June 2011 I found out we were expecting our 2nd child. We were given names of people and organizations that were able to help us get out of that house. In July 2011 we moved to an apartment out of Reading, Pa. We had the help we needed, but we still did things for ourselves, we never liked asking for help for anything. Josh than signed up for college courses at Alvernia University for forensic science in January 2012. The next month, February 2012 we had our 2nd son. He was sent to the INCU for breathing problems. We than found out he had a narrow aorta and needed to be sent to Hershey Medical Center to have his heart operated on. While I stayed in the hospital recovering, my brother-in-law stayed with our oldest son at our apartment, and joshs' mother took him out to Hershey Ronald McDonald house for a room to stay. He was also talking to all the doctors and nurses making sure our baby was o.k. and what will happen next. I than got discharged from the hospital, went home to get our oldest son, packed clothes and went out to Hershey. I got to hold my son for the first time February 13th, 2012 and for a little bit until he had to go for surgery. February 14th, 2012 our baby had open heart surgery. Slowly, day by day our son got stronger and stronger. We finally made it home as a family on February 23rd, 2012. Josh has battled to find a stable job, and is now working as a dispatcher for kutztown university part time. He has discovered that becoming a police officer is the career he wants to achieve.
Josh has never asked for help, and this is the first time he really needs your help. We have been married for 9 years and together for 11 years, and throughout all these years coming to know myself and my husband, he is very humble and rather struggle than have help. Please could you help reach his dream. Tution for the police academy has to be paid in full by January 18, 2016.
