Day 31: The Story

Here we are!!!

The best thing about this whole thing is this...The Story!!

You get to tell your story to others!! This is so encouraging and so helpful for others that may be just starting this process or maybe even just thinking about it!!

Its very great that we can now help others through all this because we have been through it!!

So here it is......My Story!

I am 24 years old single mother! I have been living with my mother since my daughter Alyssa was 3 weeks old! I have been working since she was about 4-5 weeks old! I have been through many struggles during this time trying to find a decent job and trying to fit everything in my life! Finding babysitters...working...taking care of Alyssa...its really hard work being a working and single mother!
I have been going to Louisville, KY to help my sister out with her new family and also just to be able to go spend time with my sister Ashley! When I'm in Louisville I just feel happy with my life!! So I made the decision to move there!!
And...I did it!!!
I started looking for apartments and found the perfect one!!
A small 610sp. ft. 1 Bedroom perfect for Alyssa & I right now!!

I applied and applied and applied for jobs in Louisville and finally I got one!!

I have rented the U-haul, packed the boxes, drove the mileage, and unloaded the U-Haul!!

While riding in the empty U-haul on my way home I just felt happy, relieve, thrilled and excited!!

I can't believe I finally did it!!

Im moving 3hrs away from Alyssa's best friend, Alyssa's Aunt & Uncle, my Mom, my Dad, 2 of my Aunts and all of my friends!!!
Im moving 4hrs away from Alyssas dad and her Grandma!
Im moving 5hrs away from my Grandma and Grandpa, and 3 of my Uncles!!

My whole Support System is in Ohio!! I must be crazy to leave them!!!

At least I have my wonderful sister Ashley & my awesome brother Michael!!!
Without these 2 amazing and self-less individuals I would've never made it this far!!!

I am so blessed and encouraged by all that they have done to help me and still continue to help!!!

If I grow up (lol cause I'm 24 already but am still growing )  to be even half of a person and believer that they are my life would be so meaningful and amazing!!

I went through all these emotions and changes by myself but I went through this process with them!!!

Now I can say......I am renting my own apt. where I take care of my daughter by myself!!!
I finally have my Independence back!!

I am a single mother trying to make it on her own!!!

The best part about this is...I just feel so blessed with what Ive been able to accomplish through the past 31 Days!!
