Hi there. Hope all is well. I am checking in to see if you may have some suggestions.I have to leave where im staying by April 15th and I truelly have no where for my daughter and I to go. I Have saught out shelters even and believe it or not there is a waiting list. Still not a penny for support from the ex and domestics in this state waits until there are quite a bit of arrears to enforce anything. Im at a loss. He says my our daughter can stay with him he doesnt care what happens to me. Only seperating us would ruin her mentally and he doesnt get that. Good new is I have a great job potential with a Oral Surgeon. My cycle in life has seemed to be too littlt too late. We'll see. Take Care.
I know the power of just being. My father taught me that and i firmly believe thru all my traumas in life and loses exactly what you say. It is a peaceful feeling and ive written about. Serenity comes from somewhere deep and when you are a good person with good intentions theres a voice inside that says ITS GOING TO BE OK!!!!! The hardships and things that throw us curveballs in an already very difficlt world are sometimes so painful and unimaginable/ But I personally have an angle on earth and in heaven. My daughter and Mother. One day I will be in a place thats just as seren as the feeling that lives inside me. I read Kevins story and was just touched so deeply and your words to him touched a core in me that I try to bring forth each day but sometimes loose on the chaos. So Thank you.
happy easter and Thank god there are humansitic people in this world who appreciate the meaning of Easter, new beginnings, hardships and how they may seem impossible to get thru but with help and care we always will. God Bless and I am learning from your advice. Your time and efforts are appreciated.
good morning. Please go on my page to read my reply. I somehow posted a very long letter written in reply to your letter on my own spce. If you dont see it please let me know and i will just retype it. Thanks again. keri
Hi. Ive been in your position and when public assitance denies you and it took all of your pride and courage to ask for their help in the first place......WOW what a blow to you. I dont understand why they denied you though. Can you talk to a supervisor? Get involved in a local church or call the Salvation army or Red cross. I myself worked in a professional office for years and never recieved help. When I lost it all and needed it I must tell you it took alot of repeat phone calls and as the time ticked and the bills closed in there came a point where I gave up and asked my family only to be ridiculed and rejected. So I went the next step and thru the phone book sought out crisis centers and finally found help with a foundation called families first which was believe it or not thru my daughters school counselor. So just a few thoughts and I pray for you and your daughter to recieve the help you need.
thank you for your prayers!!!!!!!!!!! I believe it is the beautiful people like yourself that will mend me in so many ways. Prayers are powerful and if anything, i have faith i will be ok and my daughter will have a wonderful role model in life thru me and my experiences.
My name is keri. Im 34 and a 13 year experienced dental assistant who is out of work and homeless with a beautifully talented and strong willed 8 year old daughter. Last march to the day I lost my best friend and mother to cancer. She was 54 years old and the suffering she endured broke my spirit and beliefs and after three long years and a very positive outlook, she died miserably and painfully. I was diagnosed with lymes disease the same week she died and my ex spouse created a hell for me when i was already there by kidnapping pur daughter and claimimg to the courts i was unfit and on drugs due to the fact that i was ill and sad. I got custody of my daugher back and then lost my license and house due to tickets thath went unpaid because i could not work. I now live with my younger sister who treats my daughter like she is a piece of crap and my self esteem took the ultimate plunge. My concern is not WHAT WILL I DO, i know i have a remarkable skill and will find work, my oncern is that i have no stable home for my child and she needs that more than anything to help her thru her grief and sadness and uplift her spiritually. Time is of the essence because my ex lives with his parents in a nice house and i fear another custody battle this time not ending so nice. He is angry and abusive but to the courts has more to offer her right now than I. Please Help Me Find what I am Missing. Something has to Give. Ive been to all the outreach programs and It seems I just keep reaching with no one reaching back. I am looking for work HARD> my family thinks i am lazy or not mentally stable. Little do there judgements know I am super intelligent and will conquer this. There faith in me maybe would have just spead it up. Now ill do it without them because im crushed at there implications.
I am a 34 year old single Mom of a beautiful girl. Three years ago my 54 year old mother began the fight of her life. A simple surgery had gone bad and she almost died of sepcic. A perferation in her bowel. She spent 3 months in Intensive care and weighed 64lbs. She had to endure a painful journey with a colostomy bag. My mother was an angle. We were best friends. I watched her suffer horribly and that was just her horrible beginning. When her 6th surgery finally reversed her colostomy bag she was diagnose with stage 3 ovarian cancer. She fought like a warrior for 18mths. Chemo they said cured her. They missed a tumor in her back that would eventually kill her. She was my world and as she lye dieing, I was thrown another blow. I had lymes disease. I felt horrible and attributed it to depression. I quit my job of 8 years as a dental assistant to stay home and care for my mom and daughter. My ex accused me of being on drugs because i felt and looked horrible. Lost weight, couldnt get up in the mornings, couldnt think or make decisions. He took me thru a hell beyond hell. He kinapped our daughter and proceeded to rage a 3 month custody battle that my mother, daughter and self just didnt need. i spent the last few months of moms life in court, without my child and my mom died asking if Reanna was home yet. Sadly my gift from her from heaven ,the very day after she died, was the return of my daughter. My ex seemingly was playing a sick, vengeful game. He hurt my daughter, self and mother so much. Thankfully I regained full custody but the last 8 mnths i have lost everything. I am homeless living with my sis who isnt friendly to my daughter and so judgemental of me. People believe i should be over it. I am taking the steps to move forward but there small. I feel better and KNOW ILL BE OK. I want to show everyone that adversity can build mountains and thru this I will be a mother that has instilled values and morales in my daughter and person who is kind, generous, and giving even though so many people have blown my mind with judgment and assumptions. Alittle help to get started is all i need. If i could find a place to rent and skip the security or work to improve the apartment in exchange for a month free. Anything would help. Thank You and To all who struggle...... FULL STEAM AHEAD!!!!
