Sessoms Family

Swallowing one’s pride and asking for help is an extremely humbling experience.  That is what I am doing today.  I am about to lay all my burdens out and be completely transparent.  Frankly it hurts to even admit any of this.  To say this year has been a struggle is an understatement.  Will broke his foot the week before Christmas last year and was out of work essentially for 8 very long months.  We lost well over $15,000 during this adventure.  Will’s truck got repossessed.  We have been robbing Peter to pay Paul (some of you will know what that means) to no avail.  I worked at McDonald’s for a time until he could return to full duty and even that didn’t help as much as I had hoped.  We have been behind on many bills for months.  We have taken out payday loans just to help pay the installment loans we took out, but that hasn’t even helped.  The 2 installment loans we have stopped accepting partial payments and now have threatened legal action if we don’t pay.  So that brings me to ask where I am today.  After Harleigh passed, I was 19 weeks pregnant, Will took several days off, which left money short.  So, we have been having to pay certain bills to keep us out of the legal process of garnishing all we have, which hasn’t even been much.  It being so close to the holidays and Izzy and Sofia’s birthdays I can’t even think about what to do with those right now because we have immediate needs that sadly supersede Christmas and birthdays.  Here is the current need.  My car payment is a month and a half behind.  The church we now go to was only able to help us with a partial payment, but there is still $728.84 left to be paid to make sure we don’t get our only car repossessed too.  Then there is rent.  With us having to pay the 2 installment loan places to keep us out of court, we don’t have the money for rent, which is due December 1st.  That amount is $1050.  The total adds up to $1,778.84.  I am asking for $2,000 because what is left over will help to get groceries.  I know I am asking a lot and I am in tears as I write this.  I just have no where else to turn.  Getting a loan at a bank is out of the question because our credit is so bad and we have no one to co-sign on one for us.  I just humbly ask for any help that can be given.  I have humbly poured my heart out and I am a little embarrassed to even put out all that I did.  We are waiting for the VA to issue Will a rating for his disability, which should be completed by December 28th.  We are praying so hard he gets a rating for the various injuries he received while on active duty.  Thanks for reading and listening.
