Hello there and Happy Holidays!! My name is Jackee I am 29yrs old. I am in a hard situation and I truly have no one to turn to in my personal life. In my attempt of searching for some help I came across this website and I am hoping that this letter reaches the right person. First I want to say a little background about myself and then I will explain why I need some direction to get help. I grew up in the foster care system and once I turned 18 I was completely on my own and have been on my own ever since. I use to work as a chef restaurants. Unfortunately two years ago I was diagnosed with crohns disease and I have undergone 15 surgeries due to the disease within those two years. I can no longer work because of my illness. I am on social security and it is my only source of income. Basically all of my income goes into my rent & bills. I have learned to rely only on myself. I have no family whatsoever or any friends to turn to for any help. I am almost 8months pregnant and I am due on 1/15/15. I feel so blessed to be having a baby and I thank God every day for this blessing, because almost 5years ago I did have a son, but unfortunately he passed away at 2months due to SIDS.That broke me down so badly. Then when I got diagnose with crohns disease I was pregnant two more times but unfortunately I miscarried both times. I was told I couldn't bear a child due to my illness. It is truly a miracle that this pregnancy happened & that is going so well. I am seeking help because due to my low income I can't afford all of the baby items & essentials I need to have. I have applied for assistance like food stamps, wic, medicaid I am only approved for those nothing else because I do get ssi. I am also on a waiting list for low income housing so that when I have my baby I'm not putting all of my income into rent & bills. So once there is an apt available I can use my income all for my baby needs. I am seeking help for donations if there is anyway I can get help with baby boy clothing baby gear & nursery, feeding & toy items etc doesn't have to be money donations or even Amazon gift cards will be blessing to me. I will be so appreciative and thankful for any type of help you maybe able to give me. I have nothing of the essentials i need for my baby boy & my due date is coming quick. I just want to try every path I can. If someone can help me and be an ANGEL for me and my baby boy that's soon to be entering this world I would be so thankful to you. Thank you for your time and I pray to hear from your organization. Thank you again Happy Holidays and God Bless ~Jackee
My name is Jackee.. I am expecting and will soon be a single mother. I grew up in the state system so to this day I have no family whatsoever. I have crohns disease and I am truly bless to be having this baby boy... all I have ever hoped and prayed for is a family to call my own =) I know I am not the only person with hardships in this world and I remind myself everyday someone somebody has it worser off then me. I feel it doesn't hurt to share our hardships with others & ask for help. You can help someone in so many different ways and I am the kind of person if I can help someone I will in a heartbeat ...
