Hi, I am trying to get my family adopted for Christmas. Finances are really tight right now as I know it is for everyone. I have a 4 year old son and 2 daughters ages 16 and 17. I am 5 months pregnant and am finding it difficult to find a job. My fiance is disabled and we only get his SSI and that barely pays the bills and puts food on the table. It has been a long time since my kids have had a good Christmas and I was hoping to find an angel out there who is able to help me out. I am in Columbia South carolinaMy email address in jacwaters2009@yahoo.com

Hi. I am a mother of 4 and I'm hoping someone can adopt my family for Christmas. Like so many I am unemployed due to the economy and it's been so hard for us all. I have had a hard time looking for a job and have even looked for job that would pay very little and have still not found a job. It's very depressing and I feel so desperate. I have signed up for public assistance and am waiting now for them to send me an appt. My children are 13, 12, 8, & 2 years old.

Please help us!

thank you!

I would like to say sorry for what your family is going through and offer some suggestions for Christmas:

We have many people (in our area) giving away lots of Christmas items. I'm sure you could find one in your area too.  

http://www.freecycle.org

 

Anyone with a legitimate need for themselves, children, or the elderly should contact the Marine Corps Toys for Tots (items for kids 0-16 yrs); the Salvation Army; local Lions Clubs often adopt a needy family for the season; the Red Cross will offer help; many police departments adopt a family for the holidays; Social Service agencies, VFW's, and churches offer help. Use the phone book and your computer to look.  

Contact a church, any church, even if you are not a member they will help you or find someone who will help you. If you have a St. Vinnie's many of them have food pantries. If you have children in school contact the school principal and ask for any help they can give; when I worked at an elementary school the staff always had a fund to buy hats, boots, coats, and mittens for any children that needed them. Many of the Lions Clubs have mitten trees, even local libraries sometimes have mitten trees. You will have to do some calling, but once the word gets out about your need you will be surprised at the help you will get from your own community 

Call 2-1-1 in your state they can refer you to someone that my be assisting with toys for tots or angel tree.

 

I know many people are struggling but there is always someone worse off for the most part. If everyone helped another person in even a small way over this Christmas season, more families could actually enjoy this season and not worry and stress about providing.

In my circle of friends/neighbors/family, I receive alot of free food items so I pass them to a friend who struggles with groceries, however, that same friend can make ANYTHING..so she decorated my kids room (with items I already had) and it looks awesome! A neighbor cannot pay her bills so several of us are helping her with gift cards and a food basket, and in exchange she is offering free babysitting services so we can do overtime without paying for it.

If there is something small you can do for another who is worse off than you, it not only helps someone out, but takes your mind off of your situation.

I wish everyone the best this season.

Hello, My name is Misty I live in Ohio with my two kids. I am not a person that is use to asking for help, but for the sake of my children I am going to swallow my pride. This has been a very difficult year for the three of us. In January I had a surgery done and was off work for a month, while off my fmla ran out and my job was not saved for me. This is the first time I have not had a job in the last 10 years. During the same time I lost my job my husband decided that he didn't want to be together anymore, so the kids had to adjust to a lot in a short period of time. I must say he continued to help us by paying the mortgage and keeping insurance for the kids. Last month he was laid off therefore cannot really help us like he was. I am going to college and have 6 more months till I receive my associates degree and then can look for a better job that can support us. I am not worried about myself, I am an adult, and have no problem going without so long as my children have what they need. This bothers me the most because I am the mother and it is my soul duty to provide for my children and it kills me that I am unable to do that at this time. Any help would be welcomed and greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at mistymoe29@aol.com Thamks!

I would love my kids to have a good Christmas! It's my son's first Christmas this year I know he don't need much but I would like him to have a few toys as he don't have any of his own. He has no boy toys for himself he has a few stuffed animals and a couple hand toys but nothing more. I would love some stuff for my kids if anyone can help me or direct me in the way to get help please let me know!!
