Creating this campaign for myself, and accepting the fact that I am now having to ask others for help in this manner, has got to be one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do.
To introduce myself my name is Kayla. I am a single mom who has been blessed with a beautiful Autistic 4 year old little boy, who is literally my reason for breathing. I work a full time job where most weeks I’m working close to 50 + hours a week.
I have recently started going through a divorce which has unfortunately resulted with me being the only parent that is currently involved (financially and physically) in my sons life right now. When the whole divorce process began, all means of help I had especially related to childcare went out the window. It has now left me struggling with not being able to find someone to help me watch my son while I’m at work. Because most of my shifts that I work require me to stay till 8pm. Which is after normal daycare hours. I don’t have many relatives who live close to me. The nearest relative I have lives an hour away. However, they do help me when they can, but their job requires them to work night shifts as well so which means they are not able to help me very often.
Since all of this has started I have found myself having to call into work alot because I have absolutely nobody who can help take care of my son for me while I’m working. Thankfully the company I work for knows about my situation and is very understanding. However, with me not being able to work as much as I need to, it has now caused me to get behind on my monthly bills. Mainly my car payment and my rent.
I’m doing the best I can to keep our heads above water but I’m slowly starting to drown. That is why I have finally given in and swallowed my pride and decided to ask for help before I get to far deep in a hole that I wouldn’t be able to come out of.
I’m asking for $1,500 because that is the amount it will take for me to get all my monthly bills completely caught up. It will also help buy me a little more time to get things figured out before I start loosing everything.
I would like to go ahead and thank you in advance if you are able to make a donation. Even if it’s only a Dollar. It would still mean the world to me. However, if your not able to make a donation I would still like to thank you for taking the time to read my story. Thank you and God Bless.
