Save Jixie/Samantha's Family Home

A year ago my whole life changed. Overnight I inherited my 2 grandchildren without any notice. I was already struggling with a spinal cord injury and out of work. Doing it completely alone with my adopted daughter Dakota.
I am still fighting to get disability even though I have MRI to prove that I have a severe illness. On top of that I contracted MRSA at the hospital & that is a constant battle. I have had it 13 times so far so I have been in & out of the hospital almost losing my life several times.
I have been doing everything I can to keep it all together & give the children everything they need. They came with only the outfits on their backs & their blankies.
But the last 3 months more & more problems & expenses got me further & further behind. Now my car is stranded in Lee Hall . I was on my way back from taking a disabled man some food when my tire blew.
I am trying to keep a roof over 3 children's heads & my nephew's. I have 5 people &. 2 dogs & 2 cats I'm trying to take care of. Every little bit helps so if you can help in anyway I would forever be grateful. Please share & spread the word. Thank you.
