Hello. My name is Dawn and I am a mom to a wonderful six year old boy Cory. My husband Ed and I have been married for eighteen years and have seen alot of rough times. One of the most difficult things that we had to overcome was infertility. Thank God we were finally blessed with our " miracle" after 12 years and many many tears, prayers, and infertility treatments. I really thought that after we had our miracle our life would be like something out of a "happily-ever-after novel". Not so. Although we are so overjoyed to have our child we have hit such a financial stumbling block sometimes I don't know which way is up. I lost my job in 2005 due to health reasons (Hypoglycemia, spondelylothesis, severe arthritus, degenerative disk disease, and a herniated disc) And of course I was denied social security. And although I can appeal, the waiting for the appeal is almost two years. Now, after losing our house to foreclosure, and having to file bankruptsy we still struggle each and every month on my husband's one income just to pay rent. Thank God he is working. Most of our difficulty financially has been due to his layoffs over the past three years. He has always been a hard working man but our economy in Michigan is just the pits and he has no way of avoiding the layoffs. Then the wait for three weeks to get the unemployment check (which is not enough to pay the bills for three people).. By then every thing is past due. It seems as though we take two steps forward only to get shoved ten steps back. I wish that we could just get caught up. Sometimes we don't even have enough money for gas. I just don't know what to do, where to turn. Today we recieved two shut-offs in the mail. It turns my stomach, I just don't know what else to do. Please pray for my family...I definately am praying for everyone here and hope that their difficulties come to pass soon. I wish that I could help each and every person here...thanks for listening.
