I am a single mom yo five boys and work two jobs and have been divorced since 2019. I have one son with asthma and one son with Attention Deficit Disorder and I am treated for asthma allergies and high blood pressure. I work as many hours as I can as I do not receive child support for my children and struggle to make ends meet and have one vehicle which is a 2006 Toyota Sienna with 174000 miles. In the past year my mom has died my best friend and my closest aunt and I have helped out with funeral expenses and I have also helped to care for my dad after my mom died. I pray everyday that my van continues to run as I cannot afford to purchase another vehicle and I try to maintain my van as best as I can. I appreciate this opportunity to submit my essay for this contest and I will continue to pray that my family’s lives will continue to be blessed and that our needs continue to be met.
