I am a military wife. My husband is getting ready to deploy in Jan. We have two young children and I’m pregnant with our third, due in Feb. We are struggling to make ends meet. He joined the army when I became ill with a chronic disorder that has left me unable to work and sent us into debt. I am worried that I won’t be able to give my children a christmas at all, this is our first christmas not living with the folks so we have no decorations and I know we aren’t going to be able to get a tree let alone presents, and since my husband will be leaving right after Christmas I had very much wanted this to be a very nice christmas for everyone. I know it’s not about presents, but any parent knows what it is like to want so bad to give your kids what they need and want for that matter and not be able to do it. I’m worried this may be our last christmas with my husband, I am trying to think positive, and I really believe God will bring him back to me, but just the same I’d like to treat this as if it were the last just incase. My car payment is passed due almost two months, and my husband’s CO refuses to sign an AER loan. To top it all off my 17 yr old brother killed himself last month and I had to fly back home to be there for my family and the funeral which stripped us of any available funds we may have had. This is for sure the most stressful time of year. I have a 4 yr old daughter and a 2 yr old son. All of my family is in California, so far away it makes it even more difficult.
