URGENT! This family is asking for help…

Thank YOU for your time and attention!
That’s my daughter in the picture above, we were both excited about the back to school shopping trip they took last Monday. She came back with school supplies, a backpack, shoes, and some clothing- awesome! We’re both so thankful!
It’s been two years now- living in shelters, motels, with Beautiful friends. I’ve spent this time being grateful for the roof, focusing on self-improvement, Loving, learning from, and teaching my daughter, and trying to find a way to provide for her without being neglectful.
It wasn’t until I saw this news story http://m.nbcmiami.com/nbcmiami/pm_108209/conten… that I felt the sting of my childhood homelessness. Seeing my daughters face under the heading sent me into the past. I began to recall the sadness, the feeling of having nowhere to call home and the anxiety from the lack of stability. Being teased on the playground when schoolmates saw ME on a News segment done at the shelter I was in.
It saddened me, to have my child experiencing the same, to be the Mother, who as I child I felt so sorry for. I remembered being 7 years old, packing my little suitcase and writing a runaway note, telling my Mom I wanted to make things easier for her and heading around the corner to hide (of course she found me). I remembered the day my Mother died, while we were living in a transitional shelter, and the devastation that followed.
 It’s not for lack of effort that I ended up here. I once accepted a job that required three buses and five hours of commute time to get there. But the pay was decent, great by Miami standards , so I tried anyway. Dragging her out in the streets at 6:00am from one bus stop to the next. The stories of struggle are countless, I’m sure many can relate.
Now my time in this shelter is up, any day I could be discharged. Thankfully, I’ll be transferred to another shelter since I have a child, and I’m grateful for that.
I’m asking for your hand because this isn’t the life she deserves. She’s so bright, loving and energetic, and I can slowly see a change in her.
She was recently able to get  into preschool, but I have yet to find a job,
I’m not hopeless, I know things will workout.
I’m asking for your help to get a jump start, in providing Babesters with a more stable life. It would relieve the pressure of move-in costs once I find a job, I’d really Love to pay a years rent, it would make it easier to get a place since I have an eviction on my record, and most will be reluctant to rent to me, many won’t at all.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, with that thought I put pride to the side to ask for help.
Please spread the word, ask your co-workers, friends, family etc.
I appreciate YOU, much Love to you and yours!
