We are Héctor and July an exemplary couple who have just celebrated our 25th year of marriage. we have been able to create the base of a solid family relationship for our two children, Andrés David, 19 years old and Isabella, 12 years old. Andrés has always excelled in his studies and great discipline in sports. Isabella has reached a prominent position in the regional tennis league, achieving 3rd place nationally as well as awards both individually and teams.
Now our faith is being tested than ever before, being a professional has not help me to find a job for almost 14 months, this situation has destabilise our entire family emotionally and financially.
Now Isabella's school payments are past due, and We were forced to stop Andres’ university studies as we cannot afford it.
We also need to cover other debts in banks anf as you might know it goes higher every month.
Three years ago we get a mortgage to have the house we thought it was going to be the perfect one to grow up old and live with our kids but we decided to put it on the market to pay at least the tuition fees for Andres University and Isabella's school that are the most important for us.. But unfortunatelly we have to pay the administration fees that are due at the moment which exceeds $ 12 million colombian pesos before we can place the property for sale.
We never thought to be in this position and we know that there are many people with similar situations or perhaps worse than ours, but we have tried everything to find a solution without success.
We thank God for the generosity expressed by family and friends, who have supported us morally and financially; but we really need a lot more to be able to pay the tuition fees for our daughter and son and not to loose the house we built up with such an effort.
We would like to thank you for taking a time to read our story.
God bless you all.

This is not for me, is for my two cousins that I love very much and unfortunately I am not able to help. The message you find is from my auntie and her husband who are currently desperate to find a solution for their situation.
