Losing HOME

From Michelle Thompson

Was recently forced to pay for a lawyer to protect my son in a custody battle which is out of my control and now may lose my home and car.

As many of you know, I am an extremely proud and private person.  It is taking a lot of humility and vulnerability to write this campaign.  If anyone ignores this, I completely understand.  I know there are so many more people out there struggling.  I am in a position that I won't be able to pay anyone back.  I can only say thank you and more than likely start to cry.  I have worked so hard and the last 3.5 years as a full time working single mom barely making ends meet, I have been so happy to be able to do it and make a life for my son.  This involved so many sacrifices that I never thought twice about.  It meant living pay check to pay check and not having any room for emergencies such as a car breaking down.  I have managed to get by and love every minute of being a mother.  But currently there was an emergency that I had no choice but to pay for it.  After paying it, I am now not able to pay 2 mortgage payments and 2 car payments.  It is so embarrassing.  Here I am working so hard to keep a roof over my head for my son and now I am terrified it may all go away.  His "father" decided to step in and ask for custody at my expense after not being around for 3 years.   I would be so grateful for any help or small amount.  I will never forget and promise to pay it forward as soon as it is possible for me.  I promise that this is the most embarrassing and exposed thing I have ever done but I need to do this for my son.  Thank you for reading.
