FIN #1 - TX
If you have something for this family, please contact tightwaderin.
What is your family situation?
I am a single mom who works and goes to school. I have one son, who is 5, and my mom lives with us, and I support her as well. My hours at work are cut because of my school schedule, and life got crazy and I missed my food stamps recertification, and money is just tight right now. I'm exhausted, and feel like I'm either working, at school, or doing school work all the time. But I know my son will benefit from me working my butt off in the long run, and, despite the craziness, I was just told I made the Honor Roll for last semester I'm eagerly looking forward to the time when I can help again, instead of being helped.
Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate?
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke)
