  • This sounds like a really horrible situation for you. I know you said your parents are in another state, but I think that you should consider going to them for help. Best of luck to you!

  • Do you have cash assistance and food stamps??? If you do that can be considered income. And the father is going to have to give you child support. Find out exactly when Section 8 opens and get on the waiting list asap. I know it's hard my kids father moved out, he is coming back, but I looked into and applied for everything. Well, if you want to talk just send me a message or something. I am 21 so I know how it feels to be a young mother. Good luck with everything.

  • How are the churches there? Do they help or are they able to help? Can they give you information maybe where to go for help...I'll be praying for you and the family. Don't give up just keep asking around ...God Bless.

  • Try United Way or a local church to find out about resources. I hate to ask, but why has everyone turned their back on you? It seems pretty harsh to put a pregnant woman on the streets.

  • You need to get legal help and file for child support, for the 2 kids and the one on the way!!! This will give you some immediate cash flow. Tell the kids' father he can start paying you now, or he can wait for the court papers but either way, they'll get the money for you.
    You had also better start thinking of how to earn money...I know you're about to have your 3rd child, but they are your responsibility and you'll have to find child care and a job in the not too distant future. Can you qualify for any type of job training through the state?

  • Also, you may qualify for welfare. Hate to see anyone dependent on the "system" but I think you and your kids need some immediate assistance.
