Ellen,

I am writing to share story about my sister in law. My sister-in-law Kris is amazing wife, mother & teacher who always sacrifices for her family. My brother & her have struggled through so my obstacles in the past 5 years and every time I think they are going to get a break they get kicked down again. I think their life started to go south about 5 years ago when she had to go on disability from a freak accident that injured her neck. While she was on disability my brother was going to law school at night & was working full-time. During this time Kris was the rock and was always supporting her husband and hiding the pain she was in. After over a year of being out of work she returned still injured but determined to back for her students & for financial reasons. They had a mortgage to pay & they wanted to start planning a wedding and hopefully a family.

After she returned to work, they got married and had a baby. Right after my nephew was born my brother lost his job. Trying to find the silver lining he focused all his energy into finishing Law school. After lots of studying and a few bumps in the road I am happy to say he graduated. I wish I could say this is the happy ending and the story ends there but it doesn’t. My brother’s unemployment ran out and he still didn’t have a job. Kris still determined to hide her concerns and keep the positive attitude, always said “It’s ok, we can figure it out”.

My brother finally had to take a position that he was extremely overqualified for just to get a paycheck. His student loans deferment expired & he was required to start paying. Oh and I forgot to mention last March they had another child. The combination of the low income job, high student loan debt, 2 children, daycare & a mortgage became too much and in the end the end they lost their house. So with a 2 year old & an infant they had to move out of the house they thought they would have a lifetime of memories in it. Now they are renting and I still worry how they are able to get by. To make matters worse both their cars are starting to act up & after they moved into to the new apartment they discovered it was infested with fleas. This meant exterminators coming in and having to throw away and replace many things. (with money they didn’t have)

I am writing this because this couple deserves a break. As I am a big fan of your show, I thought you could help them. These are good people who do the right thing and continue to get the short end of the stick. I just think if there is some way to give them a little hope it would make their lives a little easier and give them the break that they so deserve.

Thanks for listening. Jen
