Six months after our 5th child was born, my husband decided that he no longer wanted to be a father or a husband and he walked away...completely. It was important to my ex that I didn't work outside of the home, so I had quit my job and was a stay-home mom once we had children. When he left me with 5 young children, I started doing some babysitting out of my home. Unfortunately because of a dishonest deal my ex made with my divorce attorney, the kids and I lost our home to foreclosure this past December and we have been homeless ever since. With losing our home, I also lost all of my income since I do not have anywhere to babysit any longer. Besides being out of the workplace for 23 years, I only had a high school diploma so I went back to school last year. I cannot get into a place because I don't have money for first and last plus monthly rent. I have been taking care of my children completely on my own since my ex husband has nothing to do with his children, and I don't have any family to help me out. I am so tired both emotionally and physically. I have heard that when one door closes, another one opens, but I am finding out that they all seem to be bolted shut! Would anyone know of anyone willing to hire a hardworking, dedicated woman to telecommute in order to earn a good salary to take care of her children???? Sure could use some advice or encouragement because I am feeling very hopeless. Thank you!
