A lovely family that includes a baby as young as 8 months and child as old as 9 years has broken down. Kate who owned a business was having really difficult time during her pregnancy and was unable to go to her only rented business place! Hence they started falling back on their mortgage payments as well as rent plus bills of business place they was renting. Yet the only working man Aman of the family tried beyond his capabilities to make two ends meet. He worked 50 hours in two different jobs almost each week during this to make things happen sometimes not even able to return home due to working far away from home. After the birth of the youngest child they thought like any other family things would only get better but the reality is always different than dreams.
Kate went into postnatal depression as hormones changed to worse and things screwed up even more. Place they had on rent for business started having arrears on rent, bills, insurances, etc all at the same time for a while whilst Aman was having really unrecognised difficulty in resolving all stuff from travel for himself, food shopping as well as paying for all six, bills for the house as well as rented place, mortgage of the house they was living in, adding up rent and other expenses of each month for the business place that they had, including taking care of four young kids at home when needed to. Mortgage payments started delaying as well alongside for almost 7 months now. Arguments started; picking on each other on tiniest things, etc almost became daily routine.
Aman and Kate could not resist this no more, have had enough and separated. Kate now lives with the 9 year old eldest daughter and 8 months old baby; the one who has no clue whats happening in the world of dreams he just stepped into. She is renting this place now on top of all other expenses previously mentioned like rent of business place as well as insurance, etc plus baby maintenance at home and living normal life.
Just when they thought nothing more can go wrong after what already has; comes the solicitors letter of sending bailiffs in thanks to the court order mentioning within a period of a month if they don‘t pay towards the amount arrears of £1,194/ of rent of business place, bailiffs will walk into their house and take stuff away. This off course includes surcharges of solicitors as well as bailiffs plus court costs overall..
Busted left, right and centre eldest daughter is currently thinking of leaving school where her life will completely be ruined if she does not have proper education at this age. She is nowhere even near even higher education leave alone O levels but is thinking of nothing else as she sees her whole family split apart right in front of her very eyes. She wants to just stay at home and do things for her mon such as cleaning, washing up, keeping eye on the baby, etc to enable mother to go to earn some money for the family financial issues as its getting too much for them now. No extended family is around them to support with childcare which makes it impossible for them to do any other way.
I care about this family as I think they deserve a happy life and quality family togetherness including that baby who has hardly even opened eyes to reality plus that child who is only 9, deserves an education and is just learning basics of living life! Money should never be an issue for anyone to live a happy life.
When I heard from Kate about her family issues after asking her for months about what is happening at home that she would not tell me about; I recognised that whatever we can do to help this family out; it will be awesome as they say good things never get wasted.
Amount will go straight to Kate to help her pay all of these unexpectedly worsened off expenses for her family members plus her rent of her new place including helping Aman out with mortgage payments and other home expenses as he is surely overwhelmed with it all by now; with only hope that once these issues get resolved; this family will be able to once and for all get back together as well as step back up on their feet once again. Plus off course giving these children once again hope for a good life.
