Hello friends! This is a hard post for me to post. I have been trying multiple outlets and have went without bare necessities for weeks to find no more options but to swallow my pride and ask for help. My kids have been taking care of and I just went without so they can have but it's to a point I am worried about their needs as well. I don't have the most conventional family and we aren't the kind of family that you see on different advertisements of the happy smiling family. We are happy but far from your average family. There is seven of us. Four adults and three amazing children. Most of you will know me as Dani from Touch My Spine Book Reviews . ￼ Currently we have barely any income in our household and every adult in my household is disabled. Also baby Vincent has severe asthma. We have been trying to get approved for different services and find more work without success. We can't cover our basic medical expenses nor out rent. We have been through so many resources and still are at rock bottom. All we need is a month of medication and rent to push forward for the kids. I know that's a lot and I know you are thinking well why do I take on all of the adults if we have kids to worry about? Well we all four work together to provide for the three children Zoey 9, Gabriel 6, and Vincent 2. I would not be able to take care of my children without my family. I am on bed rest a lot and we all make it work to give our kids even more love! ￼ Since we are lacking in the biological family area or we have limited help or contact due to no fault of our own, we have built a family and a strong one at that. We have been through many ups and downs and all of us adults have childhoods that would scare most but we strive every day to give our kids the most out of life and happiness no matter what the situation. ￼ Unfortunately we all fell on hard times and lost work. We have all been waiting for help through Medicaid and/or Social Security but the system has been of no help and their is a waiting period for the ones that are able to help. I have been battling seizures constantly from lack of medicine and it has left me with bruises and sprains but I have pushed through to come out weak and willing to try anything. I have tried to keep my head together and find every outlet and together as a family after so much calling, walking and lack of electricity decided this was the last option we could try. Here's a little more about us and our struggles. Thomas has Type 1 diabetes and is trying to conserve his last bit of insulin. ￼Thomas also battles glaucoma and bad neuropathy that will lead to amputation in the future. Salvo had a brain injury that doctors said he could not survive but he proved them wrong and everyday he is a blessing to our family. He has multiple health issues including loss of memory that causes him to forget everything and his long term and short term memory are gone, so I am his caretaker and having a hard time being able to do that without my medication. Andrea is in stage 2 renal failure with a cancerous lump and cannot get surgery yet alone just her basic meds. Our 2 year old Vincent is also battling with asthma and needs medical equipment. I know that is a lot for one household and I am not asking for all the help just the bare minimum to get us by medically and financially another month. We need the money as soon as possible but I will be beyond thankful for anything whether it's a share, prayer/vibe and/or donation. No matter how you help you have my eternal appreciation and gratefulness! I have been bed ridden without my medication and it has been quite difficult so this money would be a God-sent! More than anything, this is a difficult thing to ask for help but I want to be able to be there for my kids and I do not want them to grow up without parents or lose our home. I am so sorry that I have been absent lately but it has been due to all of these troubles plus lack of electricity. I'm sorry for all my late reviews and my backlist but I promise to have it caught up as soon as possible. I know everyone is use to the bubbly and overly positive Dani but I am working on "dancing in the rain". I know all my followers and friends on my blogs are so kind and amazing but please don't give to me if it will cause you to be in trouble yourself or cause you financial hardship. I couldn't live with making anyone else suffer. Anyone who is able to help, I can't thank you enough and I can't express my gratitude enough. If you are not able to help financially, you can certainly help me just by praying for me or sending me positive/good vibes. I appreciate anyone who looks at this or takes their time to read my story. I hope your week is filled with happiness! Much love to you all! I can't thank you enough for your time. -Dani Touch My Spine Book Reviews P.S. Since I have been having the seizures my brain can make me a bit confused so if you have any questions feel free to reach out!
