As in every story you never want to resort to this type of thing. But over the last four years ,things have not improved in ours live. We both have mental health issues, of which with all the publication recently the governments would be there to help. Our children were placed in my parents protection 2 years ago by social services. Due to our volatile relationship. Drink involved, drugs. The things that creep in and destroy families. Life should have been great I'm a personal trainer , my wife a hairdresser. It didn't turn out that way ,this ended in my wife jumping of the local motorway bridge in a suicide attempt. I am so glad she survived. I'm nothing without her. Anyway, very much our mistake. 6 months ago we found out my wife was pregnant again and as much as that made us happy. We gave up up all that made us bad parents the last time. We drew a line we both got help, and we started a new and thought this was a new positive in our lives. Recently I had another kick in the teeth. I was made redundant we went on universal credit. It took a long time to sort. We took loans out, got in debt stupidly. Long story short , we got evicted from our property . due to our situation the local council is not willing to help. They offered my wife a refuge. But in my wife's words she wasn't willing to leave me .Mainly due to her anxiety levels. We ended up living on a allotment ! For 2 months, Elsie May has just been born and after a bit of a battle , social services have stepped in again. And yet again were in a battle to try to keep this beautiful little girl. We are completely dedicated to our children , yes we have made mistakes. But we did rectify them. We just want a chance to show we can do it. And in particular its not even the money we want its just a home and a chance to prove the world that we can do. So alls i can say is thank for reading my story , I don't expect the world. I would just a chance to prove myself. Thank you
