I am in a situation I didn't ever plan on. I'm engaged to a wonderful woman and between

I am in a situation I didn't ever plan on. I'm engaged to a wonderful woman and between the two of us we have five children. Their ages range from two to eighteen. I suffer from five diagnosed mental illnesses and struggle with addiction. I haven't worked in nearly three years because of my mental state. She on the other hand came into my life again after not seeing her for fifteen years and was like an Angel from above. I found God and a new point of view on life because of her. She had a twelve year long career with one insurance agency and had the American dream life. However over the past two years being together my mental state deteriorated and she fell victim to it along with her three children and both of my daughter's. She thenlost her job trying to help me . Along the way while things around us fell apart her kindness never left and she took in some people to help them on their feet. Most of them unfortunately stole from us including a gift for her son. We are now losing our (her) home and have no means of getting presents or even buying groceries. HELP ME HELP HER AND OUR CHILDREN PLEASE.

pregnant in need of help, holiday assistance: Hello there and Happy Holidays!! My name is Jackee I am 29yrs

Hello there and Happy Holidays!! My name is Jackee I am 29yrs old. I am in a hard situation and I truly have no one to turn to in my personal life. In my attempt of searching for some help I came across this website and I am hoping that this letter reaches the right person. First I want to say a little background about myself and then I will explain why I need some direction to get help. I grew up in the foster care system and once I turned 18 I was completely on my own and have been on my own ever since. I use to work as a chef restaurants. Unfortunately two years ago I was diagnosed with crohns disease and I have undergone 15 surgeries due to the disease within those two years. I can no longer work because of my illness. I am on social security and it is my only source of income. Basically all of my income goes into my rent & bills. I have learned to rely only on myself. I have no family whatsoever or any friends to turn to for any help. I am almost 8months pregnant and I am due on 1/15/15. I feel so blessed to be having a baby and I thank God every day for this blessing, because almost 5years ago I did have a son, but unfortunately he passed away at 2months due to SIDS.That broke me down so badly. Then when I got diagnose with crohns disease I was pregnant two more times but unfortunately I miscarried both times. I was told I couldn't bear a child due to my illness. It is truly a miracle that this pregnancy happened & that is going so well. I am seeking help because due to my low income I can't afford all of the baby items & essentials I need to have. I have applied for assistance like food stamps, wic, medicaid I am only approved for those nothing else because I do get ssi. I am also on a waiting list for low income housing so that when I have my baby I'm not putting all of my income into rent & bills. So once there is an apt available I can use my income all for my baby needs. I am seeking help for donations if there is anyway I can get help with baby boy clothing baby gear & nursery, feeding & toy items etc doesn't have to be money donations or even Amazon gift cards will be blessing to me. I will be so appreciative and thankful for any type of help you maybe able to give me. I have nothing of the essentials i need for my baby boy & my due date is coming quick. I just want to try every path I can. If someone can help me and be an ANGEL for me and my baby boy that's soon to be entering this world I would be so thankful to you. Thank you for your time and I pray to hear from your organization. Thank you again Happy Holidays and God Bless ~Jackee

A single working mother of four. No help from their fathers with one which one of my sons

A single working mother of four. No help from their fathers with one which one of my sons having a deceased father. It's difficult at times wishing I could work overtime. I do at times hard for babysitter and very hard to trust people these days to watch over them. Just seems like my bills are way over what I bring home. Although I get up every morning to fight for my kids to keep a roof over their heads. I was denied food stamps due to my daughters father who was in a wreck this summer. He received a payment for insurance. Child support office received a payment which it has been 4 years. So I have to push even harder knowing he'll never help her again. I strive for putting God first in my kids life and education along with respect into my children. I would never want them to live check to check as I do. My bills out way this journey. But I know God didn't bring me this far to leave us!! I put my family in Gods hand and fight everyday for him to give me strength, wisdom and courage!!. Be blessed

I have never really had to ask for help before, but times are hard, and it is getting close to Christmas, and i can afford to buy my family anything this year.I am a cancer patient, and with everything increasing in price, and traveling back and forth for treatments, and all the extra expenses it brings, there is just nothing this year. All my bills are behind, and I am trying to pay all that I can. Any help would be appreciated, even a gift card to walmart or somewhere I could purchase a few gifts for the grandchildren. Thanks for any consideration

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about

I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about writing this.. I need financial assistance, I have kids and I am a fulltime student who does NOT receive public assistance I just got cut off right before Thanksgiving and with Christmas just around the corner I do NOT have this kind of money at all--- I barely make it month to month and I have called 211 looking for ANY TYPE of ASSISTANCE and to no avail have I found ANYTHING--I'm very STRESSED and do nothing but be depressed and cry, I don't tell my children what is happening right now cause this is an adult worry... UGH... PLEASE SOMEONE.. ANYONE... If you can HELP in anyway: financial or information, I appreciate anything right now... PLEASE I am asking that you contact me to let me know either way if you can assist me. IF you need or want a list of what they would like, I can provide them. My email is INCLUDED HERE so please we are struggling financially we just can't do it my daughter has found a job but has yet to start even trying to help when she can-- I have also started to look but don't know where I will fit it in, but the 2 older ones they both WANT to HELP, I DO UNDERSTAND that the financial situations of our economy is making employment hard to find and get, but we are trying. I used to only get $236 a month from food assistance and my disability goes to both rent and bills so I'm broke even by the time I get what I get each month. I am grateful but I know it is NOT enough-- I really do need the help, I am currently working on my education and hoping that my new year 2015 has something waiting for me to better my life cause I'm jumping in head first at the opportunity to do it. I do appreciate any and all help that I am able to receive.

I'm going to change my future.. I do not want to have this every end of the year to me-- I always say this and darn it what else is there for me to do when I'm working on it.... What am I doing wrong to have this happen to me?? Uuugh-- reeeeally...

Please,Please, Please can someone help us for the holidays. I am going through a bad divorce and the kids father has taken me in for a little. My soon to be ex was very controlling and he took my vehicle and I have nothing for Christmas because I can not go to work without a vehicle. I feel real bad for my two boys. I have a 17 yr old and a 14 yr old. I can not believe this is happening to us this year but we really need some kind of help so they are able to get something for Christmas. I know they are older but they also deserve some happiness. Please message me back and let me know if there is any way to help. I greatly appreciate it. I do not care about me, just my boys. They are my rock when I have been doing nothing but crying over this whole ordeal.

Somebody PLEASE HELP ME, help in time of need: I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I

I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I learned that even though life is not always full of what you want, it does not always mean you should quit. I think that my will power for issues surrounding my life have definitely been put into perspective. Once I knew I set my mind to further myself educationally, personally and in a big life changing way, there is just no stopping me from achieving that goal. If I fail than I will just have to try, try, and try again.
On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for my family and myself, I thought it was going to be almost impossible.
I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to become in my future. I have always been excited about the medical field, diabetes particularly, and the medical office is the area which interests me most.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read about myself. I understand also that you have lots of requests that come your way throughout the year not just during the holidays. I am working on myself to make the best of my years to come and I really believe that my new year 2014/15 has something great waiting for me to keep me financially healthy. I will give back without question because I am one of the many out there that have fallen on trying times and looking for someone to just lend a helping hand. I am thankful for any kind of assistance and wish you and yours the best and greatest of faith, strength and love.
RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT-- I am in a very depressed, my anxiety is over the top and just DO NOT feel like me... I don't know what to do-- I have a 45 min. session talking to a therapist- which right now doesn't seem to help me.. I was approved for the gym and I been going but its NOT WORKING.. I went to see my dr. yesterday and still NO GOOD NEWS
I feel there is NO HOPE FOR ME and I don't know what to do, my life is on PAUSE or something its STUCK thought and felt like I was going to be ahead but in reality.. I'm just barely gliding by on tippy toes

MaaaaaaaaN.. what?? what is it?? what did I miss?? what am I missing?? where or what is it that I'm not getting?? UuuuGH, every time I get lost in my thoughts over these questions and NO ANSWERS to suffice what I feel...

Soooooo NOW: its from inside to GIVE UP.. OK- I GIVE UP--- I JUST GIVE UP.......... I won't ever be ahead I won't ever finish school, I won't even get to be healthy enough to even enjoy my life....... Uuuugh
