I never thought I would have to be a single mom. At 22, learning I was pregnant was a big surprise. My daughters father and I were together until she was 3 months old. We tried on and off for years until I found out he was unfaithful. Decided enough was enough and we deserved better.
Fast forward a few years. I am a single mother. I have my own place, just my daughter and I. I had left a job I was with for 6 years for what I thought was a better opportunity. After a few weeks I realized that the hours just weren't there and I was hardly working and bringing enough money in for anything. I am also in school trying to better our future. Right now I am drowning in bills. I had taken a loan out a few months ago to try and help but now that has put me even more behind. Havent been able to pay rent, my car payment, BGE, phone bill, etc. Daycare is extremely expensive in itself. Child support isnt coming in. I have tried to apply for any assistance I am able to get while I am job hunting to find something better. I need help! I am embarassed to even ask for it but right now...I just need to get out of this hole.
I am asking for $3,000 just to take care of the most important bills and at least help me catch up a bit until I can find a better employment. My daughter deserves a great life and I feel like a failure of a mother because I cant provide for her. Please, please help me give her what she deserves.
