FIN #14-AZ

If you have something for this FIN, please contact milagras.


What is your family situation?  I am a single working mom.  Things have not been great this year.  I’ve been struggling with PTSD and that directly impacts my ability to work.  My sons father is not around and there is no child support. My family is less than supportive on a good day.  It is truly just myself and my son.

Winter is our catch up season.  Temps are much cooler and manageable.  The A/C is not running 24/7 for months on end. And I can attempt to get caught up on some other bills. 

My son is wonderful.  He is homeschooled and is excelling on swim team.  He also loves art classes.  Both of which are generous with fees and cut us a break of dues.

Our climate is warm so clothes are generally not an issue. Add a sweater when it gets chilly but summer clothes are good all year long here.

Thanks to everyone who make this happen.  While we are a FIN I do everything I can to help others as well.

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Secular Christmas (non religious)

Any allergies or sensitivities in the family (e.g. cat, dog, smoke)? Asthma, celiac, - no smoke, no cat, no long dog hair.
