Our family consists of myself, my (male) partner, 10 year old son and 1 year old baby. I also have an 18 year old daughter but she lives with her boyfriend.<br><br>
Both my partner and myself work, but we are just barely making ends meet as housing costs in this area are astronomical. I shop very carefully but still don't get to buy as much food as I would like to have around. I homeschool, and buying curriculum is very difficult at times, although it is far less than would be spent on gas if my son did go to school. If anyone has any homeschooling supplies suitable for 5th grade and up, we could really use them. My baby's first birthday is on Nov 18 and I really don't know, at this point, how I will be able to buy any presents at all for him, so obviously xmas is going to be a giant struggle and even then, will be pretty slim.<br><br>
We cloth diaper only (but the only diaper covers that the baby can tolerate are wool, so I taught myself to crochet shorties and longies), breastfeed exclusively, cosleep, gentle discipline, eat whole foods, etc.<br><br>
To all of the wonderful people who are helping this year (and in past years):<br><br>
You are amazing. Thank you very much- whether you help my family or other families, such unselfishness is very heartwarming.<br><br>
I hope to have my life back someday soon, and hopefully next year I will be on the other side of this fence.<br><br><br>

You know what I want to see for this family?<br><br>
I want a PM offering size large diapers.<br><br>
I want someone to PM KayleeZoo offering a GC to a pet store or any store that sells food for a <b>service animal</b>. I know there are a ton of pet lovers here. I remember last year a bunch of people who live in the pet forum helped out the fur-babies in MIN homes.<br><br>
I also want a toy for that little guy.<br><br>
Can you look through your closets and see if you have a coat for the 10yo?<br><br><br>
I'll be so thrilled when I read these PMs tomorrow.

how is this family doing?<br><br>
If you still need pet food, maybe you can start a new thread called something like: "Attention Animal Lovers! Pet food donation needed for a service dog!"
