Dear Aidpage, I am looking for help in the Naperville Illinois area . My son has 2 9 year old children a boy and girl. he is just heart broken that Santa will not make his way to his children. He injured his back and was unable to work for 3 months and is just getting by. I have tried to help with a few things for him but they are only the necessities. If you have any places he can go for help it would be appreciated. It is so hard for me to see my children hurt because they can't do for their own children. Please help me to help them Thank you Joddie Olson

Hello Caitlin,
Christmas Cat has not been on line for a while, so she probably will not see your post. Woman in a shoe has posted several places that try to provide some Christmas gifts for children, but many of them may have closed their application process by now. You could still try. Maybe there is a church nearby that might help you.

The main thing that I can offer you now is a prayer. God will help you if you ask. I don't know if you are person of faith, but God works miracles. You could talk to God. Here is a prayer that you can say if you want

Father God,
Thank you for this day and for your love. You know all the sadness that is in my heart and you know all that I need at this moment. Therefore I am putting all of my trust in you to provide. I trust you to provide according to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, In Jesus' name I pray. Thank you my heavenly father.

I am so very sorry to hear about your kid's father. My heart really goes out too you & your kid's. My son was murdered 11 months ago. He left behind 5 small children. I really wish there was something i could do too help you & your kid's. I am struggling really bad myself. All i can do is pray for you & your kid's. In my prayer i will ask Jesus too help provide for the kid's. Keep faith in Jesus, miracles do happen.

Hello I am a 34 year old single dad of two wonderful girls 6 and 12. I am on a fixed budget to say the least and usually pay for Christmas last minute out of my last two checks before Christmas. I try hard not to ask for help. This year I got sick last Monday and got very sick I was off work all week they wouldn't let me work sick. I don't want to ask for help but my girls are wonderful kids the best two girls a dad can ask for and they have been through so much with their mother. I have had custody for 5 years with their mother filing every six months like clockwork she wants custody but don't want to get herself off drugs and get a place to live. Long story short does anyone know of any help in the Virginia area I've looked with no luck thank you so much for any time and help merry Christmas

Hello I am in north new jersey and I am a single father of three beautiful girls ages 4, 11,12 and I have been in a rut for awhile. Due to my past criminal offense which occurred when I was 19 and I am now 27 I have had a really hard time getting work. The last job I held was when my grandfather was a supervisor for a moving company and I worked there until he retired in 2009. I have gotten many interviews but to no avail because my record prevents me from getting a job. I still to this day try and try but this will be the first Christmas I cant afford to get them anything.I was doing things I shouldn't have been and decided to go the clean route and cant seem to get a break. I don't want to see them sad or upset and don't want to feel less as a man I need a miracle this Christmas.

All I can do is send my prayers and blessings to you and your family. There may be some kind of help available ,have you checked with Social Services?
Contact the churches ,some offer volunteer help. If I could help you financially I would.

Hi. My 63 yr old mom is in central virginia on a limited income raising 3 beautiful great grandchildren, all boys and ages 6, 5 and 3. She also takes care of her bed ridden mother that's 90 on a ventilator. She fought to rescue them from being fostered due to neglect by both children's parents. The youngest suffered a burn that was severe but not reported and was suffering Malnutrition, the middle child also suffered from malnutrition and the oldest with severe asthma that was not being managed to the point of 9 hospital admissions by 4yr old. All three were subjected to mental, physical and emotional abuse by the moms new boyfriend before being Their care is a lot to manage which is why I have moved in. Although I know they are in a better place it has taken its toll on her. In the last year she has began to suffer from a great deal of pain and a very pronounced limp. She's in need of a hip and knee replacement but hasn't been approved for disability or any health insurance yet she keeps moving for everyone else sake. These children deserve a blessing for christmas and most of all it would be one less worry for their great grandmother. I wont bother with specifics because ANYONE with ANYTHING to bless would be a great help.
