It is a harsh world out there, especially when you have tried everything in your power to meet the criteria needed to live in our modern day society. Only to be turned away making it impossible for a middle aged women who hasn't a leg to stand on, be this image I have to be. I have made choices in my life, that as a mother i hope no mother should ever have to make. I have two amazing kiddos, that I love no matter what! My kids live with their grandma, have been since 2013! And it kills me every single day! because of my mistakes I have made in my life, I had to start from the very bottom. a safe home, financially stable, reliable vehicle. fair enough right?  I was 23, the kid's dad took care of us, I was a stay at home new mom. That was my job! my mistakes cost me my family, and for the past 8 years of my life I have worked whatever jobs I could, only to get knocked back even further still not meeting the requirements it takes to legally care for us three. I would have to work full time and make at least 1200$ a month to be financially capable of this. I am asking with every ounce of faith I have left, please help me get my babies back. Money is what makes the world go round. Without it, we would have nothing. All I need are the right tools, and I can succeed and do good things with a second chance at life! Thank you for yalls time. I'm not looking for a handout. I will work till I bleed, if it means we get to be a family again! I just need some help with it all. :)

Tough situation. You sound llike you have a good attitude and are willing to work to turn things around. It may be that you can find some help through the Department of Labor. They have a couple of programs that might be helpful for you. Go to their website and look for a program called "Job Corps". It's purpose is to help folks develop skills and get jobs. They also have some programs that are specifically for single parents. They also have a program called "WANTO". This is a program that is for women. It helps them to deal with the technology shifts out there by developing new, necessary skills so they can take advantage of employment opportunities. That may be just what you need to earn the amount necessary to get your kids back.

I hope that helps you. In the short term also take a look at this article called I Need Help.
