Our mommy is really, really scared. She's going to be living in a car soon and she doesn't know what to do. See, mom has been holding on to a fraying rope for a really long time.

A year ago, everything was wonderful. She was set to marry the love of her life, a man from Australia. She had a good apartment, a good job, and was going to save money so she could move to be with him. She was trying to save enough to bring us, too, because she loves us very  much.

But then, a week before her wedding, her department downsized and she was laid  off. But she was hopeful that it would be no time at all before she'd be hired again. So she juggled bills and wedding plans and food for us and it was wonderful for everyone.

Except us--we don't like strangers much and it was the first time we'd met him. My sister just stared at him all night long and creeped him out. Mommy laughed about it.

But then things got bad. Mommy couldn't find a job no matter how hard she looked. We lost the apartment. In order to pay our bills and buy the special food my sister needs to stay healthy, she took a job house sitting three hours away from all her friends. She lost all her savings. And then she ran out of unemployment.

About that time she did find a job, but it payed so little that she worries all the time. Because she moved from the city to the country, she had to buy a car, and it had to be cheap. So of course it broke down and she had to pay for that. Then her phone died and she had to get a new one. Things just kept breaking.

And now the house she's staying in is about to be sold.

See, the house is part of a messy divorce, and everyone assured her it would be months and months before it would go on the market, especially since it was underwater. But they were wrong. It went on the market faster than anyone thought it would, and looks like it'll sell just as fast.

And mommy is stuck. She has no savings and no time to save. She's terrified. She can't afford to quit her job, but she has nowhere to go. The only thing she can do is give up everything she owns--including me and my sister--and live out of her car. She went from planning to be with the man she loves for the rest of her life to not knowing where she'll sleep tomorrow.

And her husband is a college student; he gives what he can but he doesn't have much. It's definitely not enough for rent and deposit, much less to fly her out to him. It's been a whole year since their marriage, and she hasn't touched him since her wedding.

All mommy wants is a chance. She knows she can make this work, can get ahead and save the money to be with her husband if she could just get some stability in her life. She's trying so hard to provide a good home for sissy and me, and to not let anyone see how scared she is.

All she wants is a chance.

And all we want is to see mommy smile again.

Thank you so much,

Apollo and Nemu
