Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I'm homeless with 3 kids.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My husband and I were having marital problems and he moved out,
and the kids and I got evicted from the apartment, so we went and stayed at my parents.
Two weeks ago is when the kids and I started living with my parents.
Well my husband and I are trying to work things out and go to counseling,
and my parents aren't happy about that. They accused me of leaching off of them
and being a tool of the devil. So basically we are getting kicked out.
We have no where to go and I can't stay with my husband and his parents
because his parents hate me. What can we do? There are no local shelters
in this area and I don't have any friends in this area either.

 

Facts :

I am able to get to the internet, because my parents have it at their home.
My husband was laid off of his job and yes, has been looking.
I am on strict bed rest. I have nurses that come to me.
I have to take care of my own children though because I do not get any help from family.
I am not in the hospital because I have in home health.
I live in a rual town.
The closest shelter is indeed 50+ miles away, and I have no money, thus I cannot get there.
Many churches I have called have a cut off of funds that they can assist people with. I unfortunately
didn't make it in time.
My husband and I are in counseling, and they come to me with in home health.
Are we done trying to poke holes in my situation? I am just trying to find a place to safely
take my kids.
I am not asking for money, or pity, just some info that any one can think of.
I have never been in this situation before, nor really needed help, so I've never gotten welfare,
or anything like that. I guess times have changed though.

Your husband let you and your kids get evicted, this probably should clue you into his character. Might want to rethink working that relationship out.

Have you ever consider Wifi ? Maybe she is connecting using an open network someone pays for. like a coffee shop or even the city May have open areas.

Internet costs money...whether its on the phone or on a computer.  Priorities.

You are pregnant and he let you and the kids get evicted, somethings aren't worth working out, FFS.

Quoting Anonymous:

I am pregnant with our last child and not able to work due to complications in the pregnancy, and he lost his job because he was laid off. I'm kind of screwed both ways. And yes, I'm working it out with the man who "tore apart my house", but, some people change. We have both been going to counseling together and working out our problems. At the moment I have phone and internet because I am AT my parents house.

Don't reconcile with him. He wouldn't pay the rent? Now you and the kids will be homeless? Stay with your folks kick him to the curb. Don't be foolish.

:( That used to be me but I had 2 kids at that time. The only thing you can both do is split for now unless you want to be sleeping on the street. You need to go with your parents, and he needs to go with a friend or his family.

So there are 2 sets of grandparents willing to let the kids live on the street? That's pretty fucking cold. If you can, get to the nearest big city with shelters and resources to help you get back on your feet. I'd give up on all of them. You're on your own now. Stay strong...you CAN do this. Best of luck to you mama!
