I have 2 beautiful children and am hoping to raise money to save our home. It’s the only one my kids have known and I was left with no money and more bills then I could imagine.
Really in need of a miracle I have gone from thinking I was just in a bad relationship to feeling like my life is over. I have been calling around trying to get assistance of some sort and I don’t know what to do.
Hi, my name is Alana. I have two children. A beautiful little girl that turns 1 next month and a handsome little boy that just turned 3. I have spent most of the last 5 years in a mentally unstable and physically abusive relationship. At first it was great but then shortly after finding out about my little boy it started getting really bad. By the time I had my first child I had already cut off most of my ties with friends and family and didn’t even realize I was doing it at first. Things just processed to get worse. I was adopted when I was younger because my father was a drug addict and my mother was unstable and I was placed into a horrible house where I was often made to feel unwelcome and as though I wasn’t good enough compared to my adoptive parents other children. Knowing about my fears my ex often threw it in my face that if I left him I had no where to go and I would be on the streets with the kids because he couldn’t take care of them or they would be put up for adoption and who knows where they would go. He always had something to say. I did try leaving a few times and was once tied up and left in what was our room after being choked and going to the bathroom on myself. Yet I stayed I was scared about what would happen to me or to the kids if I left and knew I had no where to go. After one of our last arguments he put his hands on me again but this time my son came running to my defense and that’s when I knew I had to end it. I couldn’t let my kids grow up in a broken home. I broke it off we had a blow out of a fight and he left to go to a different state taking the last of our money, our truck and leaving me thousands of dollars in debt and owing on bills I didn’t know we had or was told had been taken care of. I owe a whopping 1,300 in lot rent this month or me and my kids will be evicted turns out we got letters last month I never saw. He never let me drive and he always checked the mail at the post office before I could. I just got my water shut off and need about 6 hundred for that and my electric bill is another 1200 plus all the other random bills. I am trying my best and think I might have a job next week. I have been a stay at home mom most of the time we have been together. I quit my job of 5 years because he said I needed a break and it would be better for the kids and extra. Really it was just another way to control me. I wouldn’t ask for money if I wasn’t desperate. I don’t know what to do
