Please contact Poddi if you have something you'd like to send to this family.

What is your family situation?

Our family has made great strides this past year. My Husband got a new job, which in this economy is great. We were able to catch up on all currnet bills and stay current. We are blessed with the ability to stay afloat and even got a new to us truck 6 months ago. Unfortunately, that leaves us with NOTHING extra. We don't have cable and the only reason we are able to have internet and cell phones is because my kids school pays for hte internet and my husbands job pays for hte cell phones. we have had a few unexpected things happen in the lst 2 months that have left us in a bind again. Few steps forward and alot back apparently. Our new to us truck is now not working and not driveable so that is where anything extra we might have is going. We live in the country and have to have transportation. The kids have been so understanding about not being able to take extra classes or buy brand new clothes. Right now, all the "bills" can get paid, but food and clothes are often a struggle. My kids would love to just be able to go to the grocery store and get a piece of chocolate instead of a brand new toy. Its usually okay and I know there are people in worse situations than us. Its just....hard. alawys such a struggle.
