What is the reason behind you taking public assistance?Can't get a job? No education? I'm genuinely curious. Did you grow up in a household where you needed it? Did you plan on the children you have right now? Do you plan on ever getting off of it? I should qualify, but I don't, unfortunately.

I have WIC. DD was unplanned and DF lost his job when I was pregnant. The job market has been pretty shitty here in Michigan, so we're finding it to be difficult to get on our feet, but we're almost there. I did not grow up in a household where we needed it. I've been filling out applications left and right, with no avail. DF has a decent job right now, however. I have two years of college under my belt that was put on hold for our daughter's birth. We plan on getting off of it within the next few months, if everything goes as planned.

I don't receive PA anymore but I did when I first had my DD.  My DH was only 17 when we got married and only had a part time job. We were both still in HS.( I graduated before DD was born).  Once we were both able to get a job and make some money we were able to get off PA.  Now we have two kids, DH works full time and I am a SAHM.

These are the stories I enjoy hearing. It's 'assistance''. You started off rocky, but landed on your feet. Good for you!!

Technically I'm contributing to that, so I'm just tracking money.
