Hello Mr. Joyner:
My name is Tracey Jackson and I am a forty-one year-old, retired military reservist who served her country in 2003-2004 in Iraq. i am also a single mother of four, with two daughters in college, a fifteen year-old son and a two-year old toddler boy.
In 2008, i allowed my cousin to move into my home so that i could move into another school district for my daughter. Well, that didn’t go well and the end result was a damaged home in foreclosure for lack of mortgage payments over a two year period.
The last few years have been all about reclaiming my home from the bank and making it loveable again. Finally, in April my two youngest children and i were able to leave my mother’s house and move back home. However, when the water was turned back on a valve broke on the water heater and we had an awful flood, which destroyed the few possessions we had.
Mr. Joyner, it is my Christmas wish to ask for your help to get a bedroom set for my teenage son, new pots and pans, needed home items and a kitchen table with chairs, so that my family can sit and eat together and enjoy a place that feels homey.
