My story is probably similar to many people out there. About a year ago, my life and that of my two children came crumbling down when my husband of ten years decided he did not want to be a husband or father anymore and left us for a new life. One year later I am a divorced mom of two and doing it all alone. It is amazing what a divorce does, it humbles you for one thing. The loss of an income you depended on strains the finances but really the worst part is all the changes the kids go through. I’ve had to give away their pets, take them out of their school, stop them from participating in their activities and go without very simple items each week. There’s weeks my bank account is negative and we go without just about everything. I work a full time job and take care of them alone. I’m behind on my mortgage and the bills just keep coming due. I know there are so many others like me and I wake up each morning grateful for what I do have. I just thought if there is anything I can do to better my situation I’m going to try and fight and push on. Anything you can give is so appreciated. Thank you for reading my story.
