Hi my name is Candace and I am trying to find assistance to get my daughters (******* 5 & ***** 18 months) Christmas gifts. We are on one income right now, and my husbands hours have been cut back. My 5 year old is in special education and is being tested for autism. My 18 month old has had many health issues (she just recently was taken off her sleep apnea monitor because she is slowly but surely getting healthier) so money is very tight between doctors and tutors.
Bills are barely getting paid and I get shut off notices on a regular basis because we just can't catch up. I want to give them a nice Christmas but when faced with the decision to pay bills or get gifts I have to choose the bills. My oldest, ******** really likes the new show Monster High, and anything that has to do with it. I had hoped to get her a few of the dolls for her but they are $15 which is a stretch for me right now. My youngest has just started to show interest in things on her own and she has become very fond of Dora the Explorer, she says "Dora" all day long and her vocabulary only consists of about 15 words so it shows how much she adores her.
My wish is to get some gifts for my girls so they can be happy and so they can see that all the hard work mommy has done is paying off.
I cry myself to sleep almost every night while my husband works graveyard shift just to keep us afloat. A few people had pointed me in your direction and I appreciate you taking the time to hear me out.
Candace received a plethora of Dora and Monster High toys for her kids.
