Hi all, this is very new to us so bare with me.
My wife and I have been married 9 years and have 2 sons, 16 and 8. I was laid off as a crane operator and dont have my certifications to get much work. My wife has always been a stay at home mom until I was laid off. She went to work to help with my unemployment, and was laid off or let go due to downsizing. We have sold everything that isnt needed including our second car. We couldnt afford the payment with our mortgage. We now have 1 car, a 1999 Honda Accord which I own clear and free. My brother helped our oldest son buy a truck so he can do lawnmowing and odd jobs to help with our bills. Our youngest started gardening with us and will take what we grow to the local farmers market, he has everbearing strawberries that are delicious. He even started selling some of his old toys and video games he doesnt play to help out. I wouldnt let him sell his PS3 because he loves it and we use it to get online since selling our computer. Both of our boys are in sports which gets as expensive as you let it!
We are very behind on our mortgage payments. The bank is working with us as much as they can. My wife has Chrones and ulcerative colitis. Neither of us have health insurance and medical bills have piled up, as well as the cost of the medicines she needs.
I guess what I am asking for is help. Can someone help us out or point us in the right direction? I am 35 years old and have worked since I was 16. I have never needed help like this nor have I ever asked for help. But I am now, for my family. I dont want to lose our home, we have lived here for almost 10 years now and we need to live here for another 10 or so years.
So please, if you can help, please do. Your help will never be forgotten and when we get back on our feet we will return the help as much as we can.
Thank you for reading and for any help and or suggestions.
