Hobbies Spending time with my only Granddaughter Emma Lynn... Also spending time with my kids and my sweet tea-cup poodle Sofie who I got out of a abusive situation - She is the best and even licks my tears away when she knows I'm sad
About Me Well I was a Unit Coordinator for a ER and was fired in August 2012 over a misunderstanding - I just lost my mom and was very heartbroken and sick over it. Things are not going so well right now I have no income and my house and car are going to be taken away. My youngest son turns 18 on Dec 11 and I have nothing for him and no Christmas tree or presents and my granddaughter is at the age she understands. I just wish I could catch a break. I'm a giver and I just want to be able to give my family at least one more Christmas in this house..Thank you Ellen for making me smile when I dont feel like it I enjoy so much watching dance and hope you and your wife have a great holiday season..

Dear Ellen - I was so surprised I wish I could of won. But I didn't story of my life. Your such a generous person with a big heart like mine.. It was the worst Christmas ever - We never once didn,t have a tree or not have any presents its really a horrable not being able to give your children and grandchild. I keep praying in the new year that something will change we have to keep our house and my car even though now everything is going - Love you xoxoxo

Dear Ellen; I know I've been venting about how bad my life is loosing my job in the process of loosing my house and car - Not having any money for Christmas for my kids and Grandchild and today is my baby's 18th Birthday (some baby huh lol) But I feel so bad I cant get him anything. I've been praying so hard that a miracle will happen for me and I have to keep the faith that something good will happen. I guess I'm just really scared and have no one to talk to since I lost my mom last year. We used to talk at least 3 times a day - She lived in Ca but being able to talk to her everyday it was like she was right at my house now there is no one and a part of my heart will be gone forever. Its so hard to get over the loss of your mom. But I'm sure no one wants to listen to my problems. I just wanted to say that maybe on the 12th day of giveaways you should bring Portia with you. I'm sure she just like you has a heart of gold and is as excited as you for all the good you do for people and I know she must be so proud of you. Even when I don't want to smile or laugh your show always makes me laugh and I love to watch you dance with everyone. I will keep entering everyday and watching as I always do... All my love to you and Portia and your pets. Hugggs....

Oh please please please I need to win something - I've been trying my hardest and praying my hardest - I really need to be able to give my family some sort of Christmas. Its bad enough we can't have a tree but I've never felt so guilty about not being able to at least make Christmas a little special for them. And my Granddaughter she doesn't get anything all year because we can't afford it I need to be able to give her something form Nana. I can't believe what a train wreck my life has become. I've worked hard my whole life from 13 babysitting then my first job 17 yrs and my last 13 yrs. The pain of my disease has been so bad lately - I guess the worst thing is I know what its like to have a childhood where there is no food - no birthdays - no christmas's - My mom was mentally Ill and my Dad was a alcoholic. They are both gone now and I swore I would never let my kids go without food or heat but when you have NO money it is just so very sad. I've worked my whole life to make my kids get what they need but still make them understand what Christmas is all about. My oldest son we have kicked out several times because he's turned to drugs because my husband is a alcoholic and is so mean to him (not that that's an excuse) He has stolen from me all my jewelry that meant everything to me mostly sentimental and I just cant trust him but can't throw him out on the streets when were getting hit with snow storms and ice storms everyday. My daughter is a hard worker and her boyfriend is in the military part time - They struggle but are making it work some how. My youngest son who turns 18 tomm is a A Student and is graduating high school and then going to a tech school and I know he will be a great success in his life. My granddaughter is 17 months old and the light of my life (along with my tea-cup poodle) When I watch my granddaughter we play all the time and now she helps cleaning its so cute. Anyway please help me win something for the family.. I don't need anything I just want my kids and granddaughter to have a nice Christmas prob in the last year in our house.. I will be eternally grateful.. Love you and love the beautiful relationship you have with your wife.. We should all be so lucky to find our right partner... <3

I'm still trying everyday to win your 12 days of Christmas - I lost my job after 13 yrs last year - I'm in the process of loosing my car and house and my son's 18th Birthday is Wed and I have no money for a present for him and he's such a wonderful kid he's my baby I have 3 kids and one beautiful granddaughter who is almost 2 and I pray every night I win something so I can give them all something for Christmas and for Nicholas's 18th Birthday. I've been trying to get disability because I have endometriosis and IS so I'm in alot of pain most of the time. But the one thing that makes me smile is your show and how funny you are and love to watch you dance. I like you are a giver I love to give presents to make my family happy thats why its so hard this year. I will keep trying. Again thank you for all you do for everyone - Love you Ellen - Your the best - making people laugh is a special gift that you give everyday and I thank you for that...

I loved seeing Adam yesterday not only is he the sexiest man alive he is so down to earth. I was so hoping to win yesterday's prizes all those gift certificates would have enabled me to by presents for my family which I can't do this year we cant even have a tree and my son's 18th Birthday is in 5 days and it breaks my heart that I cant get him something. And my only granddaughter I cant get her anything either. I'm such a giver but after loosing my job our house up for forclosure and my car is getting repossed - I just wish something positive would happen.. btw I love you Ellen for making me smile when its so hard to do these days and I love to see you dance. I hope you and your wife have a wonderful holiday season..
