Hi we r a family of three and will be adding a fourth by dec 10th. We live in a 2bed room apartment but can only use one bedroom right now do to the second ones windows let in so much cold air. My husband has been our sole provider for the last couple of years due ro me being disabled. I was approved for disability 2 years ago and it will be our only income in another week or two. Almost 2 years ago my husband was injured on the job, neck injury, and has been on workmans comp thru his two surgeries. Even though both surgeries have helped he is still severly limited in what he can do. His job he was hurt on doesnt want to take him back because his limitations keep him from being able to do his job. At his next doctors appointment he will be released with a permanent disability and he will be losing that check. It will be a couple years before we see a settlement to help out. When we lose that check we will be living off of $950 a month. Our rent is $600 so we will barely be able to buy food n diapers each month. We will have no christmas for our 9 yr old this year with out some help. David, my husband, will be looking for a job immediately upon his release but jobs here are scares, especially with the restrictions placed on him. We will have no Christmas dinner and i only have been able to get 4 generic hotwheels cars for our son. The reason i am unable to work and disabled is that i have lupus, fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, and will be tested for MS after gavin is born. It was not our intention to get pregnant and i had been told by several doctors that i could not conceive due to severe endometriosis. We are blessed that we will still have my income and a roof over our heads. We dont know what to do at this point. We have no car, are waiting approval for foodstamps(after david loses his check) and are on the waiting list for section 8 housing. My husbands checks are barely anything due to the state taking most everything for child support. Dont get me wrong we know that his other 2 children need support but it is killing us right now. I dont know what else to tell u about our situation, but i will answer any questions u may have.

David is 38
Beka(me) 34
Ian 9
Gavin will be a newborn at christmas time

Ian loves cars, wrestling figures, toy bows n arrows, toy guns, dinosaurs, anything for art(i.e. paint, pencils, crayons, markers, paper, glue, erc). He is in desperate need of clothing as he is growing so fast. He is wearing teenage size clothes and out grows things in a month or two. He also loves robots/transformers. He doesnt care if things he gets are dollar store or name brand. He never complains when we cant afford much for birthdays or Christmas. He take such good care of me n david when we are sick or when david had his surgeries.
I would ask for nothing but to be able to give him a small Christmas.

Gavin will have some clothes but not much else, but as he will be a new born this Christmas i am not as worried about him. Our son deserves the world for the care n love he has for everyone and for how much he gives. Maybe its me just being a proud momma.
If any more infor is needed please feel free to msg me and i will honestly and openly answer all your questions. Oh and the one thing he has said he would love to have is an easy bake oven because he loves to cook. Thank for reading our story and for all you ladies peoviding for the family you choose. Whether it be us or some other deserving family from the bottom of my heart thank you for giving of youselves at this time of year. You are a blessing.

We would love to give Emma everything she needs for Christmas, but we're honestly so broke that we won't even be able to afford to have Christmas dinner without asking the church for a food basket. Emma doesn't have many clothes that fit her (especially for winter) and her car seat is too small for her as well (well, she's too long for it). My dad's family has nothing to do with her, so no help there; and Zach's mom is totally broke and can't afford to get her anything, either. My mom's family are all hard up for money and we do a $10 gift Chinese auction for Christmas, so she won't be getting presents there. Zach's dad is giving us all a Christmas present of a new AC/heating unit outside because ours has stopped working and we need to keep her warm somehow. Things just seem to be falling apart this year. What money we did set back for her Christmas we had to use on my doctor's appointment two days ago (I had a mc and needed a D&C that we STILL owe for..). If I did win this contest, all I would ask for is warm, fleece-like clothes sizes 6-9 months and 12 months (we put her in the feetie pajamas a lot, so those would be great, maybe some fuzzy boots to keep her feet warm (don't know the size, really), some diapers (size 2 and 3), or a car set that's convertible. We got one for our baby shower, but it has those clips and that's the only way you can use it RFing. Our car is so old that we don't have those clips, so it'd have to be one you could belt in. SO and I can get by with nothing and don't mind to. The only thing I need for Christmas is size 12 pants. I can get by with everything else. We would very much appreciate ANYTHING or any sort of help this Christmas. Even if it's a shoulder to lean on. Thank you. :)

EDIT:: Oh, Emma is 6.5 months right now. I'll be 22 in December. Zach (SO) is 27.

Im Heaven
DDs name is Angel

I have been looking for work forever now. I can not seem to find anything. I have already accepted that DD will not have a Christmas this year and it breaks my heart. Last year the guys at my moms work helped a little and she had her a little Christmas. I am the type of person who will do everything in my power not to ask for help, but when it comes to my child I really feel like I have no choice.

She wears 2t-3t and size 8 shoes.

She loves anything that has to do with the moon and bees and she love to read.
