>> We ran into that problem when my husband went on unemployment. We
made “too much money” to get assistance from the state or county for
our baby, but “not enough money” to make it over the hump. Paycheckto paycheck would have been a real step up. Borrowing from people
was not an option. We did get a few things from Freecycle, but it
really sucks that we fall “between the cracks”. If I would justquit my job, we could officially live in our 10 year old van and be
homeless, then we could get help!!!!! However, as long as we can
somehow struggle through, oh well, tough.>
> The system needs a lot of help. It should help people who are
truly in dire straits, even for a few months.>
> “Too much money????” Frustrating. I would love to invite them
over to see the lap of luxury that we are living in. (Smell thatsarcasm????)

Three days after my twin daughters were born, my husband lost hisjob. The twins stayed in the hospital until they were a month old.
We received WIC during that time. When the girls were 4 months old,
I found out I was pregnant again. When the third daughter was born,WIC recertified us. My husband had found a job at that time.
The “system” said we didn’t qualify, because we made enough
for “7” . My husband said, “7 what?”. That was 17 years ago, but Iguess things don’t change.
