I am a single parent looking for help. I have strong faith in the Lord and have been trying to wear a smile on my face knowing that GOD will pull me through...however I do have to admit that as the days inch closer to Thanksgiving I cannot help but to feel overwhelmed at the fact that there will not be a different dinner other than Pasta or something that I can afford nor will there be presents for my two wonderful children at Xmas. I am reaching out to you in efforts to ask for the help that I so badly need. I will tell you a little more about myself as I don't want you to think that I am trying to take advantage of your generosity. As I mentioned I am the mother of a 3 year old boy and 11 year old girl. They are genuinely good kids who have not given me any problems. About a year and a half ago my husband walked out on our family, as you could imagine the pain and suffering of that alone has created a great sadness in our household. I recently found out that he had gotten another woman pregnant and they just gave birth about to a baby girl..this has been especially hard for my daughter. Nevertheless, I have filed for the divorce in attempt to get any type of financial support for the children and all of the debt that my husband left behind. Our home is going into foreclosure and for the first time in my life I can truly say that there is never really enough to eat. I am truly humbled by this experience and never in my life could imagine being hungry. I am intelligent, employed and love being with children. I have asked for help from some agencies but I have not qualified because I am employed. My life is slowly falling apart and I trust that with help I can get back on my feet. I stand in faith and know that one day God will see us through. If you can help I would be greatly appreciative! Also if you have information on resources! Thank You!
Hello my Name is Angela. I am a mother of 4 whom loves my girls. As i was browsing websits to inquire about assistance for the upcoming holidays, i noticed Aidpage. Right now I am currently receiving public assistance. I am looking in hopes to give my children a healthly and joyful holiday. I am also on social security disablity for clinical depression. I have been suffering from it almost all my life. As i type i am starting to feel like insisting i am not a lazy and unproductive person. I cook clean and pay my utilities, which then leaves me barely nothing to even think about the holidays. It has been this way for years. I just wish this year could be different. My girls are getting older and see the comercials for the holidays and i'm sure they get tired of me telling them i dont have it....So i got a whim to go online and look up some help agencies in hopes i don;t have to give them that same line " i don;t have it" .....Thanks for reading...And 2 you and YOurs "Happy Holidays" Miss Angel ,,,firstname.lastname@example.org
