I’ve been a single mother for almost 3 years. For the last 2 years I have received no financial help from my ex husband ( children’s father) There is nothing I love more in life than my two fierce and beautiful daughters, however raising two children alone on a single income is incredibly tough. It’s rewarding, and I put on a brave face but I’m so very tired. Everyday is full of juggling and problem solving and I go to bed tired but their smiles make it worth it. I take no greater joy then raising them to be smart, strong yet kind and compassionate women. I’m usually not one to back down from challenges and want to show my daughters how to be brave and smile and when the going gets tough, girls get tougher. However I have finally reached a challenge no amount of courage and good humor can see me through without help. My car is in the shop and it’s not good news. I have to replace the transmission and it’s $3000 or more. $2400 for the transmission alone plus labor. This might as well be a million dollars to me right now. I’ve brain stormed. I’m running out of options but I know this. I need that car to get myself to work every and my children to school and I am humbling myself to reaching out for help to raise funds for repairs. If you have anything to spare, even $5 that would go a long way in helping me reach my goal.
