I just had my first child. She is almost three months old, and going through health and digestive issues right now. A very stressful yet blessed time. At the same time, I woke up to our house on fire on the 30th of December, thank god we got it out and no one was hurt, just a hole in our house right now. Also, our landlord is losing the house we rent. We just got notice the day after christmas, that we will begin eviction process on January 20th, we will have to go to Court and ask for at least three more months to find a place and somehow the money to move our stuff and selves that fast. I reside with my better half, our beautiful baby girl, Scarlett, and my other half's two boys age 11 and 12, whom I help care for, and our beloved family dog "Bubba". Besides requiring money to fix/cope with the house fire damage in this extreme cold weather, we need to afford to move and rent a new place, our bills are getting backed up, and our only car needs quite a bit of work as well, and I could go on. Suffice to say, I am seriously physical disabled, I suffer from spinal stenosis, neuropathy, degenerative disk and joint diseases, and can hardly walk many days or do daily tasks many take for granted, like walking or lifting things. I still am searching for light duty work that I can do, with no luck. My girlfriend is breastfeeding and caring for our newborn and unable to return to her job as a chef yet. We are on hard times and I am swallowing all of my pride just making this page asking for help. We could truly use any and every bit of help right now. Thank you , god bless, and happy 2018. Update Friday January 5th: first off thank you so much to all who shared and or donated so far! Some of this money will be helping to get our car fixed as stated above, this will be extremely helpful in allowing me to return to work soon. I am going to be driving for Uber and Lyft as soon as the car is 100%. Thank you again!
