My son is 5 and has been through more than a little boy should be. He has seen domestic abuse and has been basically abandoned by his father, who also through no help from the court system pays NO CHILD SUPPORT. We are about to lose our house that is too big and costs too much for me to support and take care of. My son is my life and I am trying to balance a full time job and making sure he is doing well in his first year of school. Along with normal daily needs and worry about finding us a place to live and finally call home. I don't want to have to move him around and keep the instability going for him. I want to give him a HOME, where he can fell that there is stability and safety, a brand new start for both of us. I need to keep him in his school district to keep that constant for him. i have a found perfect little house for us to make our HOME but my ex has left me with huge credit issues and a house in foreclosure so I have NO CREDIT right now and with this money I can get the house, pay some bills and get us started all over in this life. I need to make my son know we can make it (he has seen me count change to get him a Happy Meal and take him to a ice cream soical at his school). He has offered me his piggy bank to pay for groceries some days. A five year old should not have to do that. We live paycheck to paycheck and if something happens in between, like a puppy with a fractured leg, there goes the savings account. I can't go to any bank and can't find any personal funding right now in my situation. And family right now is not an option, which is kind of sad, but understandable I guess. i am so afraid this house will be gone soon and it is so perfect for us to start over in and a neighborhood for him to play with friends and forget all the crazy and sad things he has seen and suffered from. Someday if this were to happen, I know if I am not able to do something to repay this kindness, my son will make sure he does when he is able. Even at 5 he enjoys giving and doing for someone more than he enjoys receiving anything from others. For now I am asking for the chance for that new start and ahead of time thank anyone who tries to help us out. I believe everyone deserves a second chance and a 5 year old should not have to need that second chance already. I feel more guilt and embarrassment than I can express but to get a safe and HOME for my son I will try anything. Thank you for atleast reading this far.
