And now completely self sustaining. No more food stamps, medicaid, TANF, food banks,nothing! Let me explain 7 years ago I was married to a good man, we both had good jobs and 4 great kids. I was pregnant with our 5 th went in for routine ultrasound and found out he had trisomy 18....gave birth at 37 weeks he lived a few days and then passed.

My DH over the next year steadily turned into an alcoholic. We had another child and right after her birth my DH was arrested for DWI. He tried to run and got caught so did 18 months in jail and never came back. Our kids were 10, 8,6, 3, and 1. I don't know where he is. I had no famy to help and was I'm bad shape emotionally but started pulling it together for my kids. Went to school online, applied for and revieved a habitat mortgage, started babysitting out if my house and eventually finished school, became a licensed childcare provider and am now able to support my kids alone. Not everyone lives forever off welfare. And yes this is a brag post also lol
