  • Most of the time your first thought would of course not, no job, no income, depending on the housing situation it could be no home, no car.. but somehow someway things always work out, you find a way to make it work, even out of nothing, you find strength/determination in knowing you are all that your kid has got.

  • I would struggle with a job that pays enough (despite my education) but I would find a way plus I have some family support. First thing I'd do is move out of this city!
