Please contact HappyHappyMommy if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?

I am a single mom. I left the husband last year after I finally had enough of 10 years of domestic violence against myself and my children. We are still struggling to get on our feet, living on state assistance and housing. This past summer, I unexpectedly became pregnant by someone I’d only just met, and he immediately denied involvement then disappeared. So I will soon be raising 4 children on my own, while attending school full-time and having go back to work in April. My children and I have very little family in the area and only a few friends.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) none
