My name is Jessica and I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful children. My husband and I have been together for twelve and a half years. We have been through struggles for most of those years. We have drove the junkiest cars at one point. Finally, we have found a way to somewhat afford a new car, but that is the only car we could afford.
Here is where the story really begins. Every day is a day filled with nothing but driving. I am basically an Uber driver without pay! I wake up every morning bright and early to take my mom to work. That is not where my driving ends. I take my husband to work about thirty minutes away everyday then rush the kids to school right after that. Then one weekend out of the month I take my husband back and forth to his military drill in LaPorte, Indiana. That’s an hour drive there twice a day for the whole weekend. My husband is a Corporal in the United States Army National Guard and anywhere he needs to report I personally have to drive him to that station. All I do is drive all day from 6am until 5pm. It is completely exhausting on not only me, but my babies too.
Winning this 2018 Chevrolet Sonic would change my family’s life not for just one day, but for every single day. Being able to have two cars for us to get around would take so much stress off my kids and myself. There will be no more driving my husband hours away just to turn around and pick him up that same day. I know there are a lot of families that really could use this new car and if they need it more than me then please give it to them. Thank you for giving this chance of an amazing gift, and if my family doesn’t win please congratulate the family or person who does win from the Mckinney’s.
