Hey there mamas! I was soooo happy to find this thread! We are low income, but by the states standards DH makes $.25 a month too much to qualify for any help. Last month we lost our medical, but we should be getting it next month through DH's new job, but only medical nothing else. Does anyone know if there are other dental programs for kids who don't have insurance? We need to take DS for his first appointment but are far from being able to afford it.
We are currently working on paying off our debt while living with my grandparents, but it seems everytime we get ahead we slide back some. We did finally buy our own car off Craigslist ($650 out of our income tax check) so I guess we're one step closer. We're working ona modified DR plan for ourselves. I guess we choose
to be low income because we choose to live off of just one of us working. Both of us worked for 3+ years in different daycares and just are not comfortable putting our son (and future children) in someone elses care if we don't absolutely have to.

Ours was shorted 600 too, because our "tax liability" wasn't high enough. DH only worked about half the year after moving here to WA from Ohio. I was sad and yes I cried like a baby because that 600 would have knocked off almost 3 full credit card debts!
