Aminal Coopmans 3X Move -Rides2005

Our kids Vincent, Vanessa,  ourselves and furries face moving in these next two weeks due to to chronic
and now a crisis income situation, retaliatory eviction action against us, gain and loss of FT employment,
each of the last moves 25 miles distance between them. These events all concurrently began in the
past 60 days time. Currently, our vehicles are two Fords from 2005, and past due for repairs & TLC.  

For the past year has been a stand-out of three tough years.  Our misfortunes keep getting topped. 
This urgent move is following on the back of  two previous moves of our pack,  just since March. 
We will hear about today of a confirmation fromJax (public) Legal Aid - taking our fight  of
counter-suits  & retaliatory claim due that we wanted an overhead garage door fixed causing the
situation resulting in harm to us over and above exiting the untenable single family home rental scenario.

This difficult period now will usher in two key consistencies for our crew.  After the changes endured
in these past two years passed since accruing  Kathy's medical hospitalization bills (had an HMO),
there were additional financial stresses involving self-employment and entanglement  problems
for the business. 

The vasculitis disease(biopsy kidney -01/2016)that Kathy is afflicted with, dictates there are a
minimum of specialist visits of thirteen every calendar year.  Upon adding the second financial
life event of business finances in Dec of 2016 the two combine together forming chronic long-term
hardship. It's difficult to express the deep gratitude for all the generosity extended us that has
sustained us, thus far. 

Right now we're targeting aid to cover costs to handle fostering and time prior to foster family is
available for three dogs:  Magenta, our nine yr old Big Girl;  big uncertainties now a b
n for an immediate need RE:  Zeus & Curly - We still are looking for a six-week
period situation for that pair. 
Each of the three dogs'
temporary care being more important to us than words can convey. 

Assistance coming in has our heartfelt thanks & and carries us through this especially difficult
and stressful time.  Needed is for money for Gas,  Groc Store  Cards, Auto Service repairs, so to
get our belongings out - and cart the dogs to their temporary locations.  Moving crew help is
necessary and thankfully it can be scaled down this time (for our bodies sakes!!)and broken
into segments for several different half-days.

The chaos will be concluding in the near future and healing and rest will follow; that is our
guiding light keeping us looking forward.  All this will result for an improved landing, as we
have accepted the offer by our generous dear friend, Petra whom will share her home with us. 

Vanessa and Vincent have now a special Bus Pickup for attending  at the County K-8
school for final middle school and that is going good.  Doing all that we possibly can for our kids.

Truly appreciate your reading and sharing our resource drawing effort!!
