We Are Overcomers

We Are Overcomers

From Amber LaMonte

Our family relocated to Oklahoma at the beginning of March before everything shutdown and everyone stopped hiring. Our savings quickly depleted. Our family is facing eviction on the 28th. We are asking for help.

We are a loving family. We are in love with life, each other and our fellow humans. We strive to do our best at keeping our heads up in times of adversity and know the universe is a special place and cares for each of us. We take turns praying at mealtime, have a weekly family movie night and spend a lot of time laughing. 

Recently, I was called to follow a call to care for the elderly, and to turn away from childhood trauma caused by a close family member.  Seeing one in particular almost everyday was causing extremely difficult emotional and physical pain. We saved up what we needed and moved to Oklahoma where my husband is from. His childhood is much like mine and we simply are a close knit unit of 5 family members in for a rough time ahead now that we followed our hearts. When we moved here Covid-19 hadn’t yet become what is did. One week after moving everything shut down, companies put hiring freezes in place, day cares, schools...and so here we are. We applied to any kind of position, regardless of our otherwise healthy resumes and we’ve been stuck. 

We received eviction papers in April and we have court on the 28th of May. Last week our 1 1/2 year old was diagnosed with spina bifida and a neurological disorder which is preventing him from walking. Our oldest daughter says “I wish everyone didn’t have to get sick”. Myself and my husband have no where left to turn. We’ve been turned away from our local charities and we understand things are very difficult for all right now. It looks like we should have work now that things are opening back up but being homeless will hinder any possible progress. 

We need your help and will be working towards a positive future for our family no matter where we live. My husband and I just want to do everything we can to avoid our children from experiencing anymore hardship. 

I thank God for helping me find the courage to follow his guidance to do this after countless hours of prayer. We love you all.
