i think i give up

candi+2 started this conversation

 we will officially be on the streets this coming monday. what am i gonna do. i even called the girls daddy for help and he said he could not help me. he is too busy drinking his alcohol and partying. i am terrified i mean what do you do with a 1 and a 2 year old on the street all day. the funny thing is i am really asking. i am not exagerating what am i gonna do  there are not any shelters here for women and kids just drug addicts and men who are homeless. i can not do this anymore. my babies do not deserve this they are so beautiful and so precious i just got my 2 year old potty trained. i just can't quit crying i don't know what to do. i have tried finding a shelter the only ones in my area are for recovering drug addicts or are for men only. i pray god sends me an angel.

God will always help and intervien. It may not be the way you look for it, but he always provides, and supplies the needs of his children.. he will provide the right shelter, and it may not be the most comfortable thing.. but sometimes he has to close doors to open the ones that are so much better for us.. a better house and life could be right around the corner. Pray and trust in him.. it doesn't always makes sense, but who better to trust than your creator.. the one who truly holds all the answers and knows what's around the corner.

thank you rosie327 i appreciate the time you put into that list i spent all morning on a borrowed phone calling all the shelters. most of them were for men of course and alot said they were for women but were for men, and alot of them were for mentally or drug addicted people. i did find one called firstlight in birmingham they don't have any beds bt they said they could put us on the floor. which is better than being outside. i just need the money to get there now. thank you very much.

i also said i never would but i can understand the desperation a parent feels when u dont know what will happen i mean mayby you have never been faced with literally being on the street with two small children. with no one to even keep your babies so you can get back on your feet. there are no shelters in my town for women and kids. i would NEVER harm my children i love them with all my heart. they are my life the only thing i have in this world literally. i guess i was just upset and said something without thinking i am truly sorry. my two beautiful babies are the only thing in this world i have. i apologize to anyone for that statement. and i am so sorry. for even thinking such a horrible thing please forgive me, but as i said it was not something i said i was going to do. i have just been crying and scared and alone with my two babies worried to death that  i wont be able to take care of them like they deserve. again i am sorry.

WOW, SWEETIE YOU NEED SOME COUNSELING. JUST TO HEAR YOU SAY YOU UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE KILL THEIRS KIDS TO ME IS VERYYY DISTURBING. IM THINKING YOUR KIDS ARE NOT SAFE IN YOUR CARE RIGHT NOW. IM NOT TRYING TO BE MEAN BUT YOU REALLY NEED SOME HELP IN ALL AREAS....A CONCERNED MOTHER

Go to a shelter so your babies will have a roof over their heads until you figure out what to do from there.  Many shelters also have resources and training to help you get back on your feet.  You can get your life back, hang in there!  Best wishes, Rosie
