After a very trying year and a half for me and my family, we are unable to afford our rent let alone food and other necessities. A series of events pushed the limit finacially and emotionally: two of our dogs died after a tragic car accident, my mother had to quit her job in order to take care of my grandmother who passed recently then take care of me when I got out of the hospital. Up until recently we have been able to just make the rent with the check from my deceased father's veterans benefits, but after having just turned 18 we no longer get the check and are that much more desperate.
My family is small, just being three of us after the loss of my grandma. My sister is the sweetest person and always smiling even while working hard at her two jobs. My mother has always been a caring person and worked hard for us to make it. Even though she seems really worried, she tries to be hopeful and positive. She, like everyone these days, is having rouble finding work in this economy and is trying to grow our pet sitting buisiness. I have a part time job, but due to severe depression find it very hard to even work my few hours there. I am also recovering from an eating disorder, and having just gotten out of the hospital I still need medical care. I no longer have insurace and we cant afford to see any doctors or therapists.
We are trying to keep our family intact and do meditation and other self-help methods to keep our spirits up. The last thing we want is to give up our cats and dog and we strive to continue to grow our small business. By the end of December we might loss our housing, vehicle and phone. We won't be able to get to our jobs or receive calls from any new clients. We just need support to keep us stable and we believe our pet sitting business will grow and provide security at which time we will be able to "pay it forward".
Any additional donations will be applied to next month's rent. Thank you so much for your love and support. Please keep us in your prayers.
