Hello all that are reading this. My name is Mackenzie, I am a stay at home mother to 4 beautifully amazing children. I want to start this by saying, this is extremely hard to do. Asking for help is not something I do for myself. I’m a giver by nature, so asking for help for myself/family is really hard.
As you all know we are in a pandemic. I thought that we were doing good because my husband has a great job, our 4 children are healthy and happy and our bills were getting paid. This all changed for us at the end of august. My husband’s job cut his hours and even though we tried our hardest to stay afloat, we were faced with choosing which bill was more important. Like keeping the WiFi on so our son can continue his schooling. Do we pay the lights and water or rent? Well lights and water and food took priority because these are needed to provide for our children.
So, in making these choices our rent and a few other bills were left out. We are currently 2 months behind(September and October) I have reached out to the organizations and churches in our area to ask for assistance and they are out of funding do to the amount of people that needed assistance when this pandemic started or they didn’t receive the full amount of aid from the Cares Act.
This is our home that we have worked so hard to keep! The thought of loosing it makes me feel like a failure as a mother. I am swallowing my pride and asking for help, my kids need it. We need it.
please anything helps! I love you all!
