Out of options for my children

$1,950 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 6 months
Geez I’m swallowing every bit of pride I ever had today. We are in a complete mess and I have looked for help everywhere I can think to look. This is my last resort. So here goes nothing. 

I am leaving a very narcissistic/co-dependent marriage after 16 long years. We have been separated for about two months now. He stopped paying the bills months before the separation. We are on the verge of losing our home, van, everything. We agreed many years ago he would make the money and I would raise our children, Devin, Dominick, and Elliana. So finding a job that can support us is difficult without much experience other than bartending. However, I have found employment and while I am very thankful for that, it will not begin until October. By then it will be too late. 

Im desperate. We are about $5800 behind on our home, $2500 on our van, and soon I’m afraid they will both be gone. I have no money at all, the spare change has even been used up. I do not want my kids to lose their home and only method of transportation. Those who know me best know I do nothing for myself, everything I do is for my kids and for others. If we can just get out of this mess and have just a bit of room to breathe, I can start working and support us myself. If not, I’m afraid we will be homeless very soon. 

For those who can help, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I promise I will pay it forward someday. For those who can’t, please share this campaign with others and pray for my children and me. We need all the prayers we can get right now.

I have been more than blessed by the way God has moved some hearts for my children and me! Yesterday I received an anonymous donation outside of Go Fund Me for $6000!!! I was floored! A couple who most likely doesn’t know me at all and who I will never get to know cared enough about my situation to make a big difference for us! This $6000 with the $1700 from GFM brings us up to $7700!!! We are so close to what we need to reach our goal!

I want to remain as transparent as possible, so I want to share with everyone the choice I made. I talked with the finance company about my van. I still owe over $8000 and payoff is over $7000. My van isn’t even worth $4000 and I’m behind $2500. So I’m very upside down in it. Of course I’m sure you can guess my credit is demolished now, so letting the van go doesn’t really matter at this point. I started looking for something I could buy straight out that would be reliable, practical, and economical. I found a 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid. Great car in great shape that gets 50 miles to a gallon! And I gave $3000 for it instead of kbb value of 5-6000! So now I’m not upside down owing double on a vehicle that is beginning to have issues, but I will save the $360 a month on payments plus about $40 in has a week! That’s an extra $400 a month I don’t have to worry about any longer! Today I am dropping by a check towards my back mortgage with what is left from that check and the GFM donations.

I cannot tell you the relief I feel, the faith that has grown inside of me, or the strength that has come from out of nowhere! There just are no words. I have humbled myself more than ever before, become more transparent than I ever thought I would or could, and I now know God on an entirely different level than I thought even existed. A big part of that is all of you! Whether you’ve donated, shared, liked, encouraged, and/or especially those who have been praying, thank you. Thank you for allowing God to move you. Thank you for caring about my children and me. Thank you for showing us that God is here all among us and that He will use those we never ever expected Him to use for His glory and our victory in Him.

I’m a blessed girl today. We still have a long road to travel before all is said and done. I still have to continue caring for my children on my own, except now I’ve surrendered all power and control to God. My strength now comes from Him. And with that, I now know that anything is truly possible. People do care. A lot of people. I’m never alone. I always have you all and my God.

Again, and I can’t say it enough, thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
