My name is Angie and I am happily married to my wonderful husband Gene Jr. and even though we have only been married for 5 years we have been together for 17 happy, amazing, fun, exciting, loving, crazy, sad, painful, hard, good and easy years. He is my first boyfriend, love, heartbreak, best friend and yes also my first in that way as well. We now have our own beautiful family of 6, we have our oldest daughter Mickela who is 13, our daughter Makenzie who is 9, our son Geno III ( Buddha Bear ) who is 7, and our son Angel who is 2 and even though our family is crazy, hectic, out of control at times, and beyond stressful I wouldn't have it any other way I love them all more then I could of ever imagined which brings me to why I am here because I am going to swallow my pride and am asking for help see is what no one knows is out of our family of 6 3 have a rear genetic disability see my son Geno has had 37 surgeries he is in a wheel chair and is learning sign language he still might need 3 more soon and we were told originally that he might not live to be past 3 so as you know on his 4th birthday we went all out and had a huge bash well my husband always had a problem with reading and writing and back pain but no one ever did any thing it kind of just got put off well they have been running genetic testing on my son since he was 9 months we also always saw that our daughter Makenzie always struggled and had problems with her bladder and mood well after years of testing they finally found that my son had Duplication in Chrome zone 15 which we found was a very rear genetic learning disability that is a combination of Down syndrome and Autism. So once they found that they had tested my husband and I to see if one of use was a carrier and my husband was positive so they had to test all our kids and we found out that our daughter Makenzie had it as well as ADD, Bi-polar and Diabetes. Well lets just say my family keeps me on my feet for sure as well as exhausted but most importantly they have made me the strong independent unstoppable mother and wife I am today. So back to my reason for being here it has been an unimaginably rough and extremely hard 3 years just non-stop bad luck and loosing every thing literally from clothes to all my sons medical supplies both mine and my husbands dad's my sons wheel chair and medical bed every thing was stolen from us and we now ended up homeless, carless and have nothing but a few outfits left which brings me to the reason I am here me and my family went on a walk to get out of my mother in laws small 2 bedroom apartment were we are staying until the 1st with her fiancé who is handicap and their room mate which I am more then grateful for them and we came across a nice beautiful huge dream home that was for sale and we never bought because we always had bad credit so never thought we could we always just blew it off well not this one none of use could get it passed us we have to walk by now like 5 times a day we can't forget about this one it is perfect and most importantly our kids deserve it they deserve the security of knowing they wont have to move ever again knowing that the last 3 years of hell were all worth it to end up in our own home that is not only handicap assessable but it has a guest house in the back so I know if my son Geno doesn't ever get to a point were he can't ever live on his own at least he can feel like he does so after seeing all my kids going crazy over this place and hearing talk none stop I did some thing I never ever do unless I know I can make it happen I promised them all that this will be our home that I will do what ever it takes to get this house and make it a permanent home for The Jones Family this house is selling for $550K now I'm thinking what did I do there is no way I can possibly pull this off so here I am I won't let my babies down they are all though, strong, lovable, caring, beautiful, loyal kids that have all been through hell from watching their baby brother suffer through a total of 3 1/2 years of being hospitalized with 4 1/2 months straight at one time and loosing their mother because when my baby is in the hospital I live there with him 24/7 I never leave is side no matter what that is how I lost my job in the first place because I refused to leave my baby alone in the hospital having surgery after surgery while my husband stayed at home with our other kids and had to take care of them. My girls would call me at the hospital from school at lunch crying asking if their brother was ok we wake up in the middle of the night just to feel our sons heart to make sure he is still alive no parent will ever know that pain and all 4 of my children have had to be so strong and brave and know pain like an adult and I just want them to know what it feels like to be worry free like I saw them all in that back yard they were running and screaming and chasing each other they were so happy for that one moment they were all kids at the same time running, laughing, playing, screaming having the time of their life and to see the sad, disappointed looks on their face when we had to leave even my boys were crying and screaming so I will write to every foundation, charity, business or any one that will listen and please help me raise this money for my kids to have the house of their dreams even a dollar each every little bit helps it all adds up every penny counts so please I am not asking for a hand out or a freebee I have worked since I was 16 and love it I am willing to help out any way I can and pay it forward whether it's picking up trash off of the ground or helping some one clean their house, car or lawn and all money donated would go directly into a bank found that the Relator would set up to go directly towards the total purchase of the house. It doesn't even go on the market for another 3 or 4 weeks so I am hoping to get a good head start on it and if any thing I can at least have a good deposit. So I am hoping that some one or any one will listen and help me with advice, programs, services or suggestions any thing to give my Family the hope and fight back that we use to have Thanks, Deeply from the bottom of our hearts, The Jones Family

I'm not trying to scam anyone, my father has been homeless in Salem for almost two years

I'm not trying to scam anyone, my father has been homeless in Salem for almost two years and has no place to park his truck. We got him a camper for his truck but when u have no place to park it it's hard to survive.

Aidpage Open Letter: Hope

To the attention of:

Barack Obama, US President;
------------------------------------

Dear Mr. President,

This is my second letter to you, and although i know you have more important things to do than read my sob story, perhaps it will find its way to you anyway.

Before i start, please...no i beg you, defeat Romney!! Listening to him and his wife for four years is almost un-bearable to think about. So that being said i think you have done the best job you can, with what you've had to work with. A few missteps for sure(and what President hasn't?) but ovrall a job well done.

So on to my problem. One that i help create, and by the same token, had no control of.

I lost my job in Demeber of 07'. Like many others, and like many others, i wasn't prepared, and probably wasn't living within my means.

So, re-employment was slow,(months of un-employment) the eventual compensation upon re-entering the job market half to less than half, i found myself unable to honor my financial commitments. First to go was the cable, then the electric, my rental, and finally my 07' Fusion.

Herein lies the beef for me. I have been buying cars since i was 16. 12, to be exact. Paid off every damn one. Now this re-po has made me toxic to car financing.

Like i was saying i was woefully unprepared for my job loss due to Business closure. I had no rainy day fund, so i think it is important that you remind people to pay themselves first, and to live within there means. I would also like to see, Financial Institutions, to take a closer look at those of us who were credit worthy, before the economic meltdown, and who may be credit worthy again through re-entry into the job market as it is with me.

As of now they will finance me, but with a huge down payment, and very large interest. At the present time i do not have the necessary finances to get a deal done.

Thank you for letting me speak my mind, and if you can be of any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Sincerely,

Donald C Russ

What's on your heart and mind today?

 in response to lovinggrammy...   LOL! Alrighty then... hey, I at least can say that I can appreciate the way you stand up for yourself and what you believe in...Dont necessarily agree with it.... LOL! But, I can respect the fact that you fight for what you believ in. And, you are right. Actually, my wife and I discussed this sight and the contents within. And, we both agree it is a complete waste of our time. So, you should feel comforts in knowing I will be leaving this site. I should dedicate more time to my family and put more time into our business. I wish you well!

 in response to Inspiration...   You are absolutely correct! KUDOS to you. But, I will tell you that I will be choosing to leave this sight. Not because anyone has run me off. I dont get "ran off"! But, only because I should devote this extra time i have on the computer to my wife. We are in the process of starting another business and I have to be productive for her/us. We are all empowered to make our situation better! We only need to focus our efforts and help ourselves. So, that is why I am going. Best of luck to you.

 in response to NEEDHELPME...   There should be county assistance in your area...But, maybe not. Here in Calif. they have CMS (County Medical Services) who help most anyone who cannot afford health insurance or medical help. Dont know where you live or if you have access/your county provides these types of services. I would suggest look into that type of program... or, call some of the local schools to see if they know of a no/low cost dentist. They sometimes have referrals because alot of schoolage children cannot afford the dental care they need. Please dont wait around for some Jesus-Freak to give you their religious advice and tell you to trust in the Lord. You will be waiting for a long time! The best REALISTIC answer is to seek out the answer(s). There is help out there! You just have to find it. Have a good day.
