I am sucking up my pride and asking for help. This is a really hard thing for me to do but I am at a stand still; I need help and do not know where to go for it.
Let's explain my situation a little more in depth. Let me let you in on my life a little. I am trying to further my education so I can get a job to provide for my family. I had to get student loans as I couldn't afford the upfront costs. Due to me getting student loans, I was cut off of social services (which I had fought for months to finally get on) and my student loans don't even cover my rent let alone bills or basic needs. As soon as I found out I was having Maliyah I put away money and had a pretty good savings pile going. Now I have been dipping into my savings each month to pay for things (since June of last year) and its running out. I have been blessed to have someone watch Maliyah at no cost for the last while but for long term benefits I need to get my baby into daycare. This takes me to the next problem, as if student loans hadn't thrown me off enough, I am not fully covered with the subsidized daycare because I am on loan assistance and not social assistance. Instead of daycare being the expected zero dollars it is only partially covered. I received an amount that seems not much to most people but to me this is a lot of money. It will cost me $250 each month to have my baby in daycare. I need the money as soon as possible as I need to get Maliyah into daycare for March and then I only need help for the next two months while I am in school. After April I will be able to get a job and do it myself. For now, I am asking for your help.! If you took the time to read this, then you clearly have it in your heart to hear my story. If you are not financially able to help, believe me, I will understand! But if you are able to give, thank you in advance. Either way, please pray for us and/or pass this on to someone you know who may be able to help. Someone said to me the other day "It takes a village", I have heard this many a times before but this time it really hit me. I am here today asking you to be my village! Thank you.
