christmas help for kids: Hi my name is Alicia or Ally for short. I live in sacramento Ca, with my 5 daughters.

Hi my name is Alicia or Ally for short. I live in sacramento Ca, with my 5 daughters. There ages are 5, 6, 9, 11, 12. I recently got divorced from there dad and we lost our house and both cars. Since I was a stay at home mother while my husband, I spend 6 years at home. Now alone with my children I am struggling to balance being a stay at home mother and also provider. Having no experience for so many years and my children, im having a hard time adjusting. I know I wont be able to provide anything for them not even a tree. Christmas use to be a huge family tradition in our home and now a huge burden im not looking forward to. My children really need winter clothes or shoes. Im sure they would love toys and what not but necesities are more important. I am grateful if anyone could help us with anything. I tried online at a few organizations but its too late to apply. I have no car so getting around is some what difficult with all the girls. My daughters all have excellent grades all A's and B's and always receive honor roll and awards at school. They really do deserve so much more. They have been so good every year and this year I hope someone can help us. One day I will be in a mich better place and will be sure to do the same for another family. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about our life.

christmas help for kids, christmas assistance: I am a single mother of two. My oldest is a 16 year old and my

I am a single mother of two. My oldest is a 16 year old and my youngest is 13, whose birthday is the eighteenth of December. My children haven't had a Christmas in 6 years. This is all because I lost my job due to my lifestyle. I had received unemployment, but i couldn't save enough for a single gift. I was not able to get an extension, so I grabbed the highest paying job I could find. That job was being a cashier. Each year something always happens that makes my children miss out on Christmas. Fortunately, my 16 year old daughter understands, but my 13 year old son doesn't. I've been in and out of hospitals for my diabetes recently and can't afford my son's birthday gifts either. I'm hopeless and would greatly appreciate any help. My email is HeatherPratt12@gmail.com

christmas help for kids, Christmas wish: Children in need of Christmas just finished their list. Sometimes I

Children in need of Christmas just finished their list. Sometimes I hate letting them things that happens cause it seems to really affect them. My oldest is sure a sweetheart even when the car broke down for last month and we need a new one he offered me his money from his piggy bank. We do have a lot to do to get back where we need to be but I really wanted to show the kids they are great and do deserve Christmas. My oldest (7yo) has VATERS, severe allergies, asthma, hypospadia, cleft in his spine, imperforated anus, bicuspid aortic valve and an extra set of ribs. Great kid but he goes through a lot of surgeries and test along with his sister. His next surgery isn't til next summer. His sisters was in March. She (2yo) has 3 VSD's and cranialstynosis
Her last surgery was to correct her skull. They cut a big chunk off the top and fractured both sides of her skull. She is adorable and is doing great. Devlin (3yo) is potty training and very proud and he should be. I can't work and dad desired no kids and left. By girls dad does a great job with the boys but he recently lost his job. Financially we are having a bad year and I am asking for help for Christmas. I have checked toys for tots and they don't have it in Barry county. I don't know who to ask or where to go but even if I can get them boots or PJ's they would be thrilled. If anyone knows a place to get help please send me the info. I did let them make a list but they know Santa is having a bad year. Please help my kids with Christmas? I let them make a list on Amazon under my name (Shannon Smith). Kegan is in need of underware and socks, asked for legos and anything Diary of a Whimpy Kid. Devlin needs shoes and underware, wants anything dinosaur related and a mp3 player ( he loves music). Jocelyn needs boots and PJ's, wants baby stuff and loves music too. If you please look at their list and send is in the right direction we would be greatfull. Thank you and god bless you.
