I'm looking for someone to adopt my children for Christmas. This year has been rough and unfortunately I am unable to make this Christmas special for them.

I was going to sign up with with a local united way office but Sign ups are over and was unable to make it due to appointments and the sign ups for toys for tots is next week but we have appointments at the same time. So if anyone is willing to make Christmas special please let me know.

Somebody PLEASE HELP ME, help in time of need: I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I

I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I learned that even though life is not always full of what you want, it does not always mean you should quit. I think that my will power for issues surrounding my life have definitely been put into perspective. Once I knew I set my mind to further myself educationally, personally and in a big life changing way, there is just no stopping me from achieving that goal. If I fail than I will just have to try, try, and try again.
On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for my family and myself, I thought it was going to be almost impossible.
I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to become in my future. I have always been excited about the medical field, diabetes particularly, and the medical office is the area which interests me most.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read about myself. I understand also that you have lots of requests that come your way throughout the year not just during the holidays. I am working on myself to make the best of my years to come and I really believe that my new year 2014/15 has something great waiting for me to keep me financially healthy. I will give back without question because I am one of the many out there that have fallen on trying times and looking for someone to just lend a helping hand. I am thankful for any kind of assistance and wish you and yours the best and greatest of faith, strength and love.
RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT-- I am in a very depressed, my anxiety is over the top and just DO NOT feel like me... I don't know what to do-- I have a 45 min. session talking to a therapist- which right now doesn't seem to help me.. I was approved for the gym and I been going but its NOT WORKING.. I went to see my dr. yesterday and still NO GOOD NEWS
I feel there is NO HOPE FOR ME and I don't know what to do, my life is on PAUSE or something its STUCK thought and felt like I was going to be ahead but in reality.. I'm just barely gliding by on tippy toes

MaaaaaaaaN.. what?? what is it?? what did I miss?? what am I missing?? where or what is it that I'm not getting?? UuuuGH, every time I get lost in my thoughts over these questions and NO ANSWERS to suffice what I feel...

Soooooo NOW: its from inside to GIVE UP.. OK- I GIVE UP--- I JUST GIVE UP.......... I won't ever be ahead I won't ever finish school, I won't even get to be healthy enough to even enjoy my life....... Uuuugh

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I need help for Christmas?I contacted my local salvation army food

I need help for Christmas?I contacted my local salvation army food pantries with no luck in help.They all state,to recieve any help you must apply by Dec 18th 2013.
I tried finding online sites for help but,seems they all give the option to donate but,no option to ask for help.Seems they all accept donations but,none explains how to recieve donations for help.All the sites won't let you give out your contact information to recieve help.How can one help another without any contact information to help them is beyond me.A person a can post on a site all day long "I need help for Christmas?"but,without giving a word of contact.No help will be given to that person in need.What can I do?How can anyone help a person in need without any type of contact information?
I'm not a greedy person to ask for sums of money.I careless about my self.I don't want a thing for Christmas other then seeing my wife & kids have a Christmas.As long as they are happy I'm fine.If I can't ask for money for my family?Can I ask for gifts instead?People feel more safe giving gift then money and I'm not greedy.I can really use the help?If you can mail (122) a gift (Warsaw) to my (St) family would help us in a big way to have a Christmas.I (Laporte,Indiana 46350) Godbless you all and a Merry Christmas and prayers to you all.

christmas, CHRISTMAS HELP: I was wondering if there is any possible way anyone would help me provide any

I was wondering if there is any possible way anyone would help me provide any christmas gifts for my 15 month old son. My husband and I have experienced some situations beyond our control dealing with work and pay.We are struggling to pay our bills, we had to use most of our bill money to get fuel oil delivered so we can have heat. We ran out last month and could not come up with the money to have any delivered. We live in Minnesota. Heat is not optional. It just feels like the mountain is caving in on us, and I feel like a failure. Its not how I envisioned Christmas for our son. This is very humbling to ask for help. Please remember I'm not asking for me or my husband. This is for my son.

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I am a single mother of 3, 14yr old son (whom I just recently got

I am a single mother of 3, 14yr old son (whom I just recently got custody back from his father cuz his father became addicted to drugs) my oldest daughter is 11 and we have been on our own for 7 yrs due to her father dying from cancer in 2007. I met a man whom I thought was wonderful and treated me so well and we had a child she is 4 months old now. In the past few months he has started being very hateful towards me and i have recently learned that he has cheated on me with numerous women, I want to tell him to leave but since I am a stay at home mom I cant afford for him to leave. He does not know that I know about his infidelity and I am afraid to bring it up because I am afraid I will end up homeless with 3 kids. I need help for Christmas at least so my children can have a decent Christmas. We would even do a dollar store Christmas if I could. My kids wouldn't care as long as something was under the tree. Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can at least get my dignity back. My fiance will not give me any money for Christmas cuz he thinks his wheels on his car and a paint job are more important and obviously cuz 2 out of 3 of my children are not his. Please help if possible. Thank you and God bless you

Christmas help, Christmas assistance: I used to be the one helping others in need, back when I was blessed

I used to be the one helping others in need, back when I was blessed with good fortune ...But I chose to leave the abusive situation I had suffered in for so long, and now I know what it is like to live life in need... My two beautiful children and I have found ourselves alone (and almost broke) in the month of Christmas...my kids should not have to suffer for my choices, for my mistakes...but 2013 will be the first year they wake up to nothing under the tree...in my mind it is better they wake up to a roof over their head and food on the table...but their young minds wont see it that way, they will see it as Santa didnt leave them anything, because THEy were bad.....and maybe that is why mommy had to move us away...Kids dont understand! If anyone has advice on how to help give my wonderful kids the Christmas they deserve please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I work my butt off to take care of my babies, but we still struggle. I have a job and I clean houses, babysit, shovel snow, cut grass, etc. whatever I need to do to make ends meet. This year I've had a major set-back with the father of my children. He was taking care of them when I worked (which worked nicely for all involved-he got his visiting time, kids got to spend time w/him and his family, and I didn't have to pay a babysitter so I could go work). In October, I found out that he was physically abusing our 4 yr old daugher (she had a handprint bruised onto her tiny little face when I went to pick her up from a weekend with him!). When I confronted him about this, he also assaulted me in front of our son (6). The police didn't do a thing, pitiful. DCFS "indicated" him as guilty of child abuse, but the state's attorney wouldn't even file charges. Anyhow, I now am having to pay a babysitter (thankful to have an exceptional young mother to look after my babies when I can't, though) for the time I'm actually at work, and I work nights so I have to pay her to keep them in the daytime sometimes as well so I can get sleep between shifts. Trust me when I say I work for my money. I do as much overtime as possible and I do any odd jobs I can find. I can clean, cook, do childcare-i was a nanny for several years, i bake fabulous desserts and can cater parties, and i am a medical assistant and cna so i can also do homehealth. I just need a bit of assistance this christmas to help my children have the christmas they deserve. I know not being able to see their father anymore has impacted my children, and the last thing they need is to lose hope or their spirit of christmas. We will gladly accept used items, we are not picky and my children know the value of money. We shop thrift stores and hunt for bargains all the time. Even though I'm single and their father does nothing to contribute, the state will not give me any assistance for some reason, even though based on my income and their own guidelines I qualify for it. I will most graciously work off any help you can provide- I have many useful skills. Thanks for reading and thanks for thinking of others this holiday! (P.S.- i can provide police reports to verify the incidents I described, i know there are a ton of scammers out here)
