My name is Arra, I'm 29 yrs old and I'm in dire need of financial support for my 3 month old baby boy. When I was 4 months pregnant, his father decided he wasn't ready for a child because he lost his job. He suggested I give the baby for adoption. I cried so hard I thought I was going to lose my unborn child. I was so heartbroken. His father was never around during my entire pregnancy. When he lost his job, he became a different person and left me alone to take care of my pregnant self. I endured so much and survived through the whole pregnancy on my own. He, however, is nowhere to be found. I'm not aware of his whereabouts. My disability pay is taking months to come because of unforeseen circumstances. There had been a few problems with my union. Day after day I wait for it. It never comes. Right now I have no home to go. I can't afford to pay for an apartment because I have spent every dime in my savings to support my baby. I'm down to zero. I'm currently staying at my brother's one bedroom apartment with her girlfriend of 3 yrs. Things have been difficult inside the house. The tension is growing by the minute. They've been wanting me and my child out the house. I understand that my brother will take his girlfriend's side. I can't do anything about it. It hurts but I have to accept it. I just have nowhere to go. The people I thought were "friends" aren't friends after all. I have reached out to a few but they can't do anything for me. My last option was to send my baby to my mother in the Philippines so she can take care of him but I have no money to buy the ticket. Ticket alone costs anywhere from 1200-1600 round trip and especially higher on the holidays. I have to go back to work because Iv been gone for over 3 months and I'm not getting paid anymore for the time I'm currently using. I'm afraid me and my baby will end up in the streets in a matter of days because I have nowhere to go and I just don't have money left for an apartment. I had a heartbreaking conversation with my mother today and I told her I'm afraid I might just have to give the baby up for adoption to a couple I personally know. They can't bear a child but they are great people and are able to take care of a baby. I was bawling to the thought of it but I have no way out and if I can't give a home to this child, I might as well give him to the people who can. Please help me come up with the funds so I can bring my child to my mother. I need to buy a plane ticket and give my mom money for my baby. I have nowhere else to go so I'm here asking for your kind heart to help me. Thank u very much.
