24213910_1506482848.9735_funddescriptionTwo years ago I became a single mother of two little girls. I gained the courage to end the abusive relationship I was in. I was terrified to take these steps. I didn't know how I was going  to pay rent, electricity, water bill, car expenses, insurance ,phone bill etc. I felt like I had failed my girls. But I couldn't sit back and pity myself, I knew I quickly had to jump into action. I found a well paying full time job and daycare I could afford. Soon enought after lots of saving I was able  to get a house for the girls and I. Soon after that I found a great boyfriend that instantly treated my children  like they were his own. Soon after that I purchased a car that was reliable and safe for my girls. I finally felt proud of myself. I finally felt like I was a good role model for my girls. Felt like I had finally built a little empire of my own. I don't have parent's to rely on when times get hard. My mother lost custody when I was 14 and my best friend who happend to be my dad suddenly passed away in my arms when I was 16.  So I'm on my own in this world. When life finally felt somewhat perfect, 2 weeks after I was on my way to my children's daycare . I was sitting at a red light when a guy slammed  going 55 mph . This ruined everything for me and my girls. Unfortunately I can't get to into details about the injuries we are suffering due to our current law suit. 

But due to this traumatic experience  I have been  out of work for months. I was relying on my boyfriend to pay the bills, but he was fired for missing to much work from taking care of myself and the girls. I'm now at risk of losing everything I worked so hard to gain. I've never asked for hand outs. A few people recommend me doing this and said maybe I'll get some help . I'm over 30 plus days past due on all my bills. I have exhausted all options, I have reached out to every church in the Hampton Roads, social security office, assistant programs, the salvation army, thrive, the housing crisis hotline. I've been told no from every single one. I have never asked for help, but honestly this is the only option I have left.  Ive also looked into pre settlement loans but my lawyer said he can't help me with that because we are still to early in my claim. Anything can help. I have rent, daycare, car payment, car insurance, gas and electric  bill, water, misc bill, etc. I honestly need a mircale at this point. I'm usually the one donating people on gofundme, but now I'm in some serious help. If noone can help by donations, prayers would be amazing and if you're up to it sharing it always helps.Thank you all from the bottom of my heart and God bless,❤
