Please contact HappyHappyMommy if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?
I'm a single mom on disabilty with a 13 year old dd and a 10 year old ds with autism.My son also receives disability,and my daughter receives cash assistance,and we get a little from food stamps.It's very hard to keep up with my bills,buy enough food,household items,clothes,and toiletries,as well as take care of our 6 cats(more on the way,unfortunalty.Ds let one of females,a rescue,I can never say no unfortunalty, out on accident,and she came back pregnant.She just had kittens 6 months ago.I was planning on having her spayed in November. greensad.gif).The little bit I will have left over in November(I'm getting a little extra that disabilty owes me) is going to neutering the kittens,so that we don't have anymore.I'm using a low income clinic,it's all I can afford.I don't receive any child support,I have a restraining order on my exh due to him getting very violent when he's drunk,which is almost all of the time.The kids have seen him once in 3 months.
