I started out great in school and was on the road to a great future. And I dont know if this will help my cause at all, but at sixteen I began doing drugs and drinking quite a bit. Over the span of six years I was constantly high or passed out some where. I was so smart as a child and my future was slipping through my fingers. At the age of 22 I found out I was pregnant and I was so scared of being a momma. I quit using and drinking the moment I found out I was going to have a baby. I even gave of my beautiful Newports. It was really hard to do this to my body while I was expecting but it was worth it to have my baby be born healthy. I will be clean for five years in December of 2007. I cant tell you how wonderful it is to say that. I have come along way and now I have two beautiful babies. They are now my addiction and I want them to have everything in life they need and a little of what they want. To do this I am planning to go to school in the fall to find a job that will allow me to give them all they deserve. I am hoping for help from the college with funds but I'm not sure of my cars capability to get me back and forth. I just need enough to fix my car and give myself and my children a chance at a good future.

My advice is to check with a local church to see if some good samaritan amateur mechanics who like working on cars will take a look at yours. It will eliminate labor costs and maybe save on parts costs, as well, if they make your car their mission project. Offer to barter or exchange your time or services for someone's time on your car.
Hi I am a mother of 2 and would love to go to school in the fall. I have applied for financial aid and I hope I will receive it. But what I need is a little help to fix my car so I will be able to safely get my children to daycare and then to school. It is a great car but is in need of repair. I will be really grateful for any help.
