thank you that is a good suggestion I will look into it.

Have you considered enlisting in one of the branches of the Armed Forces (i.e., the US Army, Navy, or Air Force) after your baby is born?  I was uneducated; poor; from an abusive family -my father is and was a personality disordered prescription drug addict; working fast-food, and had no hope that things would ever get better when I enlisted in the Army. The Army gave me what I needed to enter the middle class. All I had to do to be successful in the Army was be willing to work hard, do what I was told, and not complain.

Best Wishes,

Amber



I understand why you might think that but if you are in Washington you are more then welcome to come see how I'm living.

I suspect if we track this person down we will find the majority, if not the entirety, of her story to be just that ... a story. Have you considered a career as a writer? Go to school, get a good education and learn to support yourself. Relying on other people proves very disappointing so it's best to become self-sufficient and motivated - particularly if you truly are going to become a mother.

 

I've come across other children playing on the internet and making up stories to entertain the masses - once their families were notified it stopped. Kids need to be supervised ----especially when it comes to the internet!

I have applied for every job in my area, and I am currently doing 35 hours a week of work source looking for a job.

I truly cannot believe that you can't get a job at McDonalds or WalMart. Heck, my 16 year old son has a job a Burger King working 25-30 hours a week. All it takes is some footwork on your part to go and apply to every business around your area or at the local Unemployment Office. BTW, I was a single mom for a while (my sons' father died in a motorcycle accident) and I had a 30-40 hour a week job and also went back to college at the same time to get my degree (in engineering, no less). I had to give up my single horse at the time. There are programs out there to help single moms, again, you just have to do the footwork to find them. I really am getting tired of this "I am entitled to..." mentality of our young people. I taught my son that he needs to work for everything he is given. Especially in his own household!!

One more thing I would like to add I do do odd jobs but have not had enough odd jobs to support renting even a studio apartment or a room for that matter, also I got and award for perfect attendance my first quarter at school and graduated from college with a 3.30 GPA and you don't get that being lazy, especially when you entered when you enter college with a 8th grade reading level a 7th grad writing level and a 5th grad math level. I fought with my dyslexia all through college and made it. I succeeded. and it wasn't because I don't no how to work hard.

 

that piece of writing was only the beginning of my bio, and believe it or not as you will but it is the truth.

One thing that is ALWAYS available this time of year is field work. Come to eastern WA and you can pretty much work from here until well into the fall following the orchard work. Cherries are ripe NOW. But the reality is most people don't want to do that work. But it's here for the taking...

I was young once.  Never this stupid and pushy.  Dare I ask WTH baby daddy is?



Maybe the OP should just delete this thread as I'm sure she did not get the response she expected.  She could contact Triple H for assistance if needed.  I think she is young and probably a bit immature/naive - we've seen others here make similar mistakes.  

Nothing naive about this one.  At all.  Budding con artist is all she is.

Well I put it out there just in case she realized we were not fools and wanted to take it back.  Needless to say, I did not get the response I expected.  Enlightening.  :)

Sorry to bump this back up but I'm bored, kids are gone and hubby is on his way home from college.

1) Don't beg for handouts
2) Where in Washington are you? Goodwill is always looking for hardworkers, as is Les Schwab.
3) No one will ever tell you life is easy because it's not.

I got pregnant at 19. We made $31 too much for any assistance. We moved in with my parents. It's been almost 12 years since then. I never had to give up my horse because luckily my parents have 10 acres and have never turned us or the horses away. But it hasn't been easy. We have two kids, two horses, and my husband goes to college full time and works about 50 hours a week. My business is slowly picking up but I only work full time because I want to be around for my girls. People comment on what we have and how lucky we are but we have had to work for it. We have struggled, just like you will, and we still struggle.

Money is what makes the world go round, we will always need it. But you have to earn it. Don't ask for hand outs, don't expect others to be there to catch your fall (even though it is so nice when they are there), learn to hold your head up high and rise above where you are now. Your son/daughter will love you and you want to be a good role model. Start now while you are pregnant. Find a way to make your own path, hard as it will be.
