I am 27 with a 6 year old and I am currently 4 months pregnant. I am not very excited about this because I am afraid I will not be able to make ends meet. I live in Chicago and yes there are many resources to turn to for help...but it seems as though there is no place for me...I am supporting myself and children on my own. In order to get any help you have to meet certain guidlines. I make under $30,000 a year and can't seem to get food stamps or any type of assistance....I dont know what to do. As many of you all know financial hardships can put a toll on your relationships...I am never happy anymore and I want to be the best parent I can be...but I'm always worried about money and making it out here...
