Please help! Our 8 month old deserves better!
Hello world. Thank you for taking some time to read my plea for help; I know there are many others here, so it means the world to me that you've taken some time to read mine. :)
My name is Kathy, and I live with my husband and now 8 month old little boy. Life was going pretty well for us before; At 21 we both owned a home, had stable jobs, and we were going to school part-time to advance our careers. Of course, all of that changed last September when our little angel joined our small family.
I was on maternity leave with the promise of returning to work after six weeks, and my husband began working full time to bring in extra money for the baby. It was not the lifestyle we used to have, but we were ready to sacrifice that for our son.
Reality set in around the middle of December of last year. I was laid off from my job due to "company restructuring", and shortly thereafter, my husband was laid off from work as well. It was also around this time when the doctors diagnosed our son with severe eczema, and his doctors visits were becoming more frequent (thus costing us more money).
To add insult to injury, our home began falling apart shortly after the rains came flooding in. Most of the drywall ceiling came crashing down, and although we've tried to replace most of it, the room still floods very badly. We have noticed mold growing in between the drywall and the roof, and now we are terrified as to what our son might be inhaling!
Please...my family doesn't know that I'm doing this, but we have no one else to turn to for help. Please help by donating what you can to help us fix up our home and pay a few medical bills until we are able to get back on our feet. If not for us, then for our 8 month old son who deserves better than this.Thank you!
