Homeless!!

Well in 3 months my family will be homeless. Dh and I have been living at a family members basement apartment for almost 3 years. I'm 22 weeks pregnant and they no longer want us here. It's a small one bedroom apartment and we also have a 3year-old that shares the room with us. We knew that the apartment was to small for four of us but we didn't realize how much debt we where in till we tried to buy a house. Well now we're trying to fix credit scores. Then my husband job slowed down so he hasn't been getting paid very much. I'm starting to realize were going to be homeless.

*we wasn't trying to have another baby it just happened. Yes we use protection but it has failed us and we didn't want an abortion.

Thanks!! I can't stop thinking about it but my dh tries to comfort me about it and tell me that things will work out. But I'm starting to lose hope.

Have you put any money aside in those 3 years?

You have three months to save for a deposit and first months rent.

Why would you not just find an apartment?

I'm a nanny for a loving family just don't make enough and it drains me so the thought of getting a second job right now isn't going to work. My dh does do side work when he's not working to make extra money but it just isn't enough for the price of living in this state.

You have enough time to find a place to rent. Time to grow up and be responsible adults and parents.
