I’m writing this Christmas Wish request asking for help for my twelve-year- old son, Matthew. He is a tall, skinny, 7th grader with a good heart. We have fallen on hard times lately because his father walked out on us leaving us both financially and emotionally hurt.
We are trying to move on and establish the best life that we can. However, it’s been very difficult. I slipped a disk in my back which causes pain and numbness in my legs, so I’m unable to work. In order to keep a roof over our heads we moved in with my grown daughter and her two babies.
Tom, as of right now, my son and I exist on about seven hundred dollars a month, $250 of that goes towards my daughter’s rent in order to help her out. Matt has been wearing double hoodies to keep him warm against the bitter winter. He could use a warm coat, new clothes that fit his growing frame, better shoes and to keep him entertained a bike and a new X-Box to replace the broken one his father gave him.
