Hi My name is Kady I have 4 beautiful children that are my whole heart. 2 girls 10 & 16 and two boys 14 & 15. This year has been the hardest year I've had to experience ever, and through it all my kids still smile daily and love me.
I'm a single mother and when COVID hit I had to leave my job to stay home and school my children. Although that was a few years ago it seems to be one thing after another and I'm struggling ALOT. Christmas is by far our favorite holiday and we usually get to do presents and Xmas eve with my kids grandfather from their dads side unfortunately he passed away this past May 2023 and this has made this Christmas very sad for us. We love and miss him and our tradition is suddenly gone and we'll have to start our own new Xmas tradition. On top of it all we have to move to somewhere new before the end of December, so every penny I'm trying to save. Christmas is of course about being with our loved ones but these 4 children deserve what they ask for.
Throughout all my hardships they are such good kids. I feel like such a failure this year and feel even more so having to ask for help, it isn't something I've ever had to do. So asking is hard for me. My children are thankful and appreciative of everything they have regardless of what it is. Thier whole lives I've had them donate every Christmas season to children who are less fortunate and don't get Christmas's and things, food, clothes etc like they do. This year it's us and it breaks my heart. My hope is by Xmas 2024 we will be back on our feet and back to normal. Anything at all helps, just to even have gift cards on our tree, or blankets wrapped for presents etc. nothing will go unnoticed and every little thing will be appreciated.
Thank you in advance for reading this as I didn't intend to make it so long, but I'm just trying my hardest to explain our situation without getting into too much detail as putting this out there to the public is already a huge step for myself. I hope everyone has the happiest of holidays
