Family in Need #4, MO

Please contact heatherdeg if you have anything for this family.

What is your family situation?
Our family is hopefully in just a temporary financial crunch. The past six months have been a struggle for us to maintain basic living expenses. My dh is self-employed and we are trying to not lose our house. DH is working 14 hours per day to try to keep us from moving to a friend's basement. I do not foresee us having any extra funds this year apart from the house and utilities. It is just a really hard time for us right now. We were on the path to becoming foster parents and hoping to be in a position to help a child this Christmas, and here we are needing the help. I hate asking for help, I'm usually the one who likes to offer the help! I really appreciate being considered for this.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) smoke only.

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Christmas
