My husband and I are two people of millions of U.S. citizens who are exhausted with suffering from debilitating student loan payments and so an answer to this cause would be nothing short than miraculous. However, we believe in blessings.
With that understanding, I write this from a point of desperation and hope for brighter days to relieve us from student loan debts that have become larger than we will ever be able to manage and pay off. I have been an elementary school teacher for 15 consecutive years and my husband has been a police officer for twelve. We are the working middle class who needed education to provide a stable means for living. We’re seeking a student loan relief angel who understands the value of education and family, appreciates the effort to resolve generational poverty, and is seeking a cause that appreciates public servants.
We’ve worked countless extra hours for the last ten years, as well as side jobs, trying to pay our student loans while doing our best to support our family with three children. The debt is crippling and we have assured ourselves that we’ll be paying on it (including interest) until we pass away. I want better for our lives and this isn’t a narrative that I want my children to tell about us someday.
Our students loans never seem to qualify for grant programs unless we’re able to make an unreasonable monthly payment for ten consecutive years. This isn’t reasonable for us since we don’t have anything in our savings account and life always presents unforeseen needs that always set us back.
Perhaps you’ll find it in your heart to help us remove this suffocating debt so that we can spend more time at home with our children and with each other. Our dream is to someday be able to offer our children financial assistance, aside from student loans, once it is their turn to attend college. This means remedying our loan debt first in order to make this possible.
Thank you for considering and please share our story with others.
