This is very hard for me to do - to ask for help. Especially in a supe public way, but the consensus among my friends is that if you need something you might as well just ask!

I'm a single mom... My five year old son & I moved across four states in May 2012, to start life anew in a little city outside Houston, TX.  It's been harder than I thought!  I am working 12 hours a week (which is what I've got child care for), and I am about halfway through a college program for Medical Transcription editing, which I eventually hope to be able to do from home.  My lil man is in kindergarten and is excelling!

I'm a little embarrassed to be putting this out there for people to see/read, I just don't know how else to ask for help. It's very difficult for me to ASK when we need something!

I was on unemployment since I was laid off in March 2012, just before we moved to Texas, but my unemployment ran out in August of last year

We were incredibly blessed by some friends, who took us into their home when I could no longer afford the rent at the little duplex we had. But, last month that situation had to end. I was able to find a little apartment for my son and I, but I also still have a car payment, and insurance, gas for the car... and a bunch of debt that I've gotten since living on credit here.

I've sold nearly everything I have that's worth anything, and I have some more stuff listed, but... the stuff I have isn't (apparently) really anything people want. :(  This 'fundraiser' was another way I thought of that could possibly help us.

We pray every night, thanking God for providing for us and asking Him to continue providing the things that we need. I have been doing what I can, it's just hasn't been enough.

To anyone who donates, and to all those who HAVE donated to help us get through these struggle-y times, THANK YOU so much. Y'all have been angels, and I am more grateful than I can tell ever tell you. I hope I'm able to bless someone, someday, the way we have been blessed.

Praise the Lord we made it through November. I am still looking for work and still have a few things on Craigslist. I thought with Christmas coming, maybe people would want to buy some of them as gifts (there are good little girl gifts here) but so far no luck. I am very discouraged lately, and praying for God to show me what the deal is because I sure can't see where this is going. Thank y'all who are keeping us in your prayers, they are very appreciated!
