hello, i dont even know where to start, fisrt off, we are a family of 6, 4 kids, 4, 11, 12, 14. right now we are living off of 356.00 dollars a week.i never imagined myself searching to no avail on help with husbad is in construction, and in these cold months it is so very hard to find work, let alone the economy. we have tried salvation army, social services, toys for tots and various churches all wit a dead end. it is so very depressing. my kidss arent even asking for anyting expensive because they know of our money situation.i just dont know what to do anymore. and we were a hard working family who hae managed for 12 years. and the loss of one jo has drained us.for myself, it doesnt really matter, but to see my kids on christams morning, with odds and ends from the dollar store is heartbreaking.they already know i cant afford the things they really like and what makes it even harder is this will be thier for holiday without their grandmother who always made sure she helped as mich as she could.i ve tried everthing and gone everywhere and dont know what to do anymore. if you can help or point me in the right directioj i will forever be n your debt. please..i am begging.

I will pray for you all.  Just know that if you believe and trust in the good lord, he will supply all of your needs.  You are doing his work with them babies anyhow.  Do not stress about the presents.  My children will have very little this year as well.  It could be a lot worse couldn't it? We could be on the streets, hungry, or seperated from them.  Make sure that at dinner time this year, you all talk about the important things.  That presents are fun but if you cannot give at least you all have each other.  Trust in god he will supply.... he is in the blessing business.  We half to believe and know that maybe it will not happen right when we want it to, but on his time.  We cannot appreciate the good times, until we have experienced the bad.


In my thoughts and prayers,

I am in a desperate situation myself.  I have found serenity though in knowing that me and mine are all safe, healthy, warm and full.  Some children are homeless, some are seperated from their parents, and it could be a lot worse.  So my children will not have much to open, but at meal time, we will discuss the things in life that are truly valuable.  However, we cannot appreciate the good times until we have experienced the bad.  How bad is this really though? It is material things.  Trust in god that he will supply our needs.

 God bless

God is good all the time.  This may actually be one of our worst Christmas' ever.  I do know this, my children may each get one very small item to open.  I just sat down and explained to them what it is really all about.  They seemed to understand pretty well.  The good lord has blessed us all with a warm place, plenty of food to eat, and good health.  Like you said, faith will keep us warm.  I agree, if we all put it in the lord's hands, he will supply all of our needs.  Anyhow, we cannot make things happen on our time, we need to let things happen when the lord is ready.  I think that the older our children get the easier it is to explain what we are to really be thankful for.  If we never experience the bad times, it would be a lot harder to appreciate the good times.  Good luck to you and yours, and god bless.

On a sad note I feel comfort knowing I am not the only one desperate for help is such hard times. As a single struggling mom who is currently a f/t student know it is physically hard to wake up everyday hoping for a miracle. I just hope that all those out there in the same situation as myself, i know it may not be easy but try to have faith. Faith is the only thing that seems to give me enough to wake up and keep going everyday. Not to mention no one will or could ever love my children like myself.

Hello my name is Sarah, I am 27 years old.. Here is my story.. My fiance(44) and I recently accquired custody of his two grandchildren a 5 year old boy and a 3 year old girl.. Due to a CPS call on their mother for neglect and abuse. last year in september the children were placed in our care. It was a big shock, but we more than welcomed them into our home.. We are now living in West Seattle in a 2 bedroom home, but at the time we were not prepared for it.. We make sure the children have food and clothes and give them plenty of love and attention... My fiances hours had been cut from work, and I recently got laid off from my job as a nursing assistant.. We also were just informed that our landlord wants to sell so we have to be out of our home by january 30th, which is right around the corner.. We have no extra money to purchase anything for christmas, I know they are only children and probably dont understand anyways, but I would love for them to have a wonderful christmas just like I did when I was a kid..  Thanks so much to anybody who is willing to help... Sarah
