Furloughed While on Maternity Leave

$210 of $10k goal

Raised by 4 people in 35 months
I have never done anything like this before and am not one to ask for help, but here goes.
The government shutdown has hit home. I just gave birth to beautiful twin girls and have been on maternity leave. I got the phone call last week that as of 10/7/13 my job has been furloughed until further notice all because I am out on leave. If I were not on maternity leave, I would still be reporting to work. I no longer have a paycheck coming in due to the shutdown. I am the "bread winner" in our home. I have 3 children to feed and a roof to keep over our heads. I don't know where to go from here. Please, if there is any way you can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

*****UPDATE*****

The furlough is over and people are back to work. I will finally have a check again begining next week. The unfortunate thing is that I (and all of my furloughed coworkers) won't see much of the check because of the deductions, such as continued insurance coverage, that will be made before they pay me (us). Thank you to everyone who has shared this and/or made a donation.

We're still here and still sliding by month to month. You never realize how hard it is to catch up until you've gotten so far behind.
We've incurred some medical costs for one of the twins. She had to have an MRI done and a cyst removed. Fortunately it was just a dermoid cyst. She will have a check up on 6 months and then yearly after that because there is a chance of it returning.

Alright, I am nowhere near my goal (which is close to the total amount of pay lost in the 4 months I was out with the girls) and I guess that is fine. We are making it and sliding by each month. I would like to say thank you, again, to those that did donate, and still any donations are greatly appreciated!

So, it's been a while and things are getting better. The girls are now almost 9 months old. My how time flies. I/We could still use any help getting back on our feet. Work is going well, but with a gov't job, the future is always so uncertain. As for the moment, the future looks bright.
