I am a single mother who had no choice due to health and financial reasons to leave my kids with my ex-husband and his new wife, moved from California - where I called home for almost 30 years, to Taipei, Taiwan, where I was born and raised.
After battling with depression for a while, I do have a job which pays pretty much everything to cover my basic life. However, my oldest daughter just went to UC Berkeley, she earned it really hard, so I gave her almost all of my saving so she doesn't need to forfeit her dream. Just about a week ago, we just found out my youngest daughter is facing some serious health issue. Her platelets level is only 1/10 of low normal range. I need to go back to California to see her, be with her, even if just a few days. She is only 10, and not very close to the new family, I know how much it will means for me to show up there to see her.
As I mentioned, I just spent all my saving for my oldest daughter's college tuition, I am having a hard time to come up with extra money to see my baby girl when she needing my support. I am using the d0uble-ten holiday here to travel so I don't need to take an extra day off and risk my job. Besides I can save all the unused personal leave at year end to transform into payments, that will also help my kids.
I was a stay-home mom for more than 16 years, I am tough, I helped my kids overcome Epilepsy, Autism, and now I am facing IPT. Their father already starting a new family, however, consider about he is all about getting even with me after 18 years of marriage, and everything that I have loss because him, he would never change. I am working 3 jobs overseas and trying to get my own health situation under control. I would love to have some traveling fund for me to see my youngest daughter, and whatever the left over, it would be toward her medical bills. I would very much appreciate if you can help.
