My name is Rachel I am 37 years old I have 4 wonderful children and a beautiful little granddaughter, above you will see a picture of me and my family! that was my life as I once knew it until one day changed everything and life as I once knew it no longer exists. My husband of 16 years was tragically taken from us and that started the chain of events that has brung me here to you guys asking and pleading for any help at all.
Me and my husband was together for 17 years he was my first and only love. We have 4 beautiful children (also pictured above ) he was a wonderful husband and an even better Daddy he was the glue that held our family together, he was our protector and provider. Since his death our life has become very hard to live as he was everything that we needed to survive he supported us in every aspect of life, after his unexpected death with no life insurance i had to get a job to be able to provide for my children keep a roof over our head and pay for my husband's funeral but my income was no where near enough to keep us a float and we lost our home.
Both of my parents are deceased and I have very little family none that was able to take us in or help us financially so we moved to Ohio with a life long friend or so I thought..
It turned out to be the biggest mistake I have ever made in life and The Concaquences of that decision was sadly laid upon my second child my 14 year old daughter by ways that I will not discuss. Our life was shattered once again and feeling like I failed as a mother to provide and protect my kids the way my husband did I hit rock bottom which is where I still remain but am trying my hardest to get back back up but with COVID-19 and everything that is going on in this world assistance is not easy to get.
. After all that happened in Ohio, we had to come home to Indiana and with not having anywhere to go my kids had to go live with my husband's mom their grandma and I had to come live with my sister and her daughter in a small 1 bedroom apartment..we are 50 miles away from each other and due to no transportation are only able to talk on the phone I have not seen my kids in 2 and a half months and I'm just not sure how much longer I can go on like this I have tried everything to get help to get us a place to live and it one dead end to another it has been to much to bear on me and my children. losing my husband and them losing their Daddy is an ache that remains so intensely in our hearts and we thought it couldn't get any worse but now we have lost everything including each other and its to much for me and them we just need a little help
So I come to you and anyone willing to help us be together again help us get a car a home anything you can do we will be more grateful then you could ever know please help me give my children their smile back help them have a somewhat normal life. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read this and who is willing to help us please share our story don't let the chain of love end with you. May God bless you today and always!
