Hi, Jessica! My name is Brittni, I have three adorable children. Brooklynn is 6, Heath is 4 and Roman is 1. I am one scared momma! As a fellow mother, you may understand to the extreme of how I feel. Here is our story. I married my high school sweetheart in 2006. We have been together since 2005. Together we had three beautiful children . We had struggled, sure.. But nothing compared the the struggle I am going through now. On my birthday a couple months ago, he came home from work (at midnight) and asked me for a divorce. He left immediately. I was shocked, just flat out stunned that someone who promised me that he would never leave me and who tad me daily how much he loved me, all of a sudden this guy I thought I knew, left. To add to the stress, I have been unemployed for almost 3 years to be a stay at home mom. I immediately began to search for jobs, from McDonald's to huge corporations. Sadly, I think my long absence from work and the fact I do not have a GED, it has hampered my job search. No one will hire me. So stressed is t a word for how I feel about this situation. But wait! There's more. My husband put in a 30 day vacate at my current apartment. I had no say because I was not on lease, his dad and he were lease holders due to my credit. So he informed me that he put in a 30 day vacate and he'd help us get a place with in 30 days. Two weeks pass and not two days ago he told me were screwed. Kids and I won't get his help because he's helped us enough. So now, frantically I try to find options, I tried government housing programs, but no. I either have to be on a two year waiting list or have to have a job to qualify. Also I asked friends and family, unfortunately no one was able to help. Speed forward to yesterday, I found out about a site called 'Gofundme', I signed up and created three pages, two for help to earn money to get a place so my children won't be homeless, then one for my utilities to be put on. ( oh, did I forget to mention this deadbeat dad hasn't paid out gas since January 2012, so we have not had heat nor hot water since then). Here is a link to my main 'Gofundme' page: http://www.gofundme.com/Scaredmomofthree I have asked for a total of $1500. Back to my utilities, the HEAT program will pay half my bill after I pay first half, so I'd need $350 for HEAT to lay the other half, then we cod have hot water. Then for an apartment, we'll need $250 for a sure deposit and other fees (possibly more due to my poor credit) and I will need first months rent which will be $750. I am in such a panic. The last thing I want is to put my kids in a homeless shelter and take them from their own beds. I feel hopeless. The first few days that I have been on 'Gofundme' and I still haven't received even $1. Please help us, please either help is be heard or help us any ways you or your friends at 971zht can. I am an avid listener and I am desperate and you all do so many wonderful things to help people that I figured I would try and reach out. Please. We need a miracle. I am beyond scared, desperate and discouraged. With lots of love and hugs, Brittni, Brooklynn, Heath & Roman Wardle.
