This takes a lot for me just to write this. But here it goes. My husband joined the Army last year and after he graduated from AIT we moved from Vermont to El Paso, TX. 2500 miles away from our home state. We have been here almost a year. I helped support him in his dream of being in the military. I changed my life for him. I left my job, out apartment, friends and family. I even lost friends because of moving. But now my husband has decided he does not want to be married anymore. I am not gonna go into the details. But now myself, 2 kids and our dog are stuck here in El Paso with no money or help to get back to Vermont. I have been reaching out to programs that might be able to help us but I am not having any luck. I have priced out trucks and a trailer to tow my car back to VT. It took us about 4 and a half days to drive here. But that was just in our car. So guessing 5 days of drive, food and lodging along the way.
I have always been the type of person to help others. Let people stay at my house if they needed a place. And I don’t ever ask people to help me unless I absolutely have to and unfortunately that’s what I have to do now. Any little bit will help. Please and thank you! Thank you all that has donated so far. As of right now we are a long way from the goal. My husband turned off the WiFi so now my kids can’t do there school work. Who knows how long it will be until he turns off our phone and then I will have no way to contact my family.
