Uh O, it's the holiday season!

Updated: Nov 15, 2019

Years ago I was a newly divorced single mom of a 2 & 3 year old. I was lost, confused, lonely and wasn't sure what life had for me. I was trying to process the trauma of the abuse that i had endured for many years, the heartbreak of divorce, trying to navigate life on my own and as a single mom, all the while trying to keep a smile on my face for my babies.

After leaving our home with only what fit in my car....we needed a place to live. Eventually Harbor House of Central Florida and my amazing advocate Ginnely Carrasco helped us by helping us find a place to live and assisting with a percentage of the payment for a year. Thank God, we had a safe home to live in. Here I was in this house, a job that didn't pay much and the holidays were coming up. I wasn't sure what I was going to do! I wasn't sure how to tell these little faces that mommy couldn't afford a Thanksgiving, much less a Christmas!

Well thanks to may amazing advocate...I didn't have to.

That Thanksgiving and Christmas my children had everything we needed for an amazing holiday! They provided a beautiful Christmas tree and more gifts than my kids have ever had. And they didn't forget about me...I had gifts too.

I write this with tears streaming down my face because I know what this feels like..to not know how you're going to do it....

I don't want any of our families to feel that this holiday season. That is why we are assisting families this Holiday Season. Will you join us?

Wish List Thanksgiving: Turkeys, and all the sides that make a great thanksgiving dinner.

Wish List Christmas: Christmas trees, toys, Hygiene products, gift cards and food.
