Many years ago, before my grandmother died, she made my grandfather promise to keep the family together.
He purchased a block of land and then divided it up amongst his sons and daughters so they could live together as neighbours. And so he was able to keep his promise of keeping his 7 kids together. That was 1950-something.
I am the second son of my grandfather's 3rd son.
Years have passed and I got married and had some kids. Now, 20 years after my marriage, my wife and I are getting divorced, pushing us to sell part of the family legacy. I need to raise $30k so that I can afford to buy her share of the house. If I don't succeed, I will be forced to sell.
It is the only thing I have left to leave for my daughters and would dearly love to keep it.
I've made a few mistakes in my life, but have been working steadily over the last 5-6 years to rectify the errors - most of which I can manage, but the divorce will need that money immediately and that's not something I can do by myself.
So I'm asking you to help me. I made the mistakes myself and am doing everything I can to fix them, but I can no longer do it alone.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't offer anything in return except my gratitude.
Thanks for even reading this. I know it's just another sad story and that there a likely millions of others just like it, but I don't know what else to do.
Be blessed - whatever you decide
