I agree honey, I am in a similar situation but with only one child. I am putting myself through school right now, and am finally in my senior year. But it has been extremely difficult and exhausting, and again, I only have the one. She is only 4 now and I have been going to school since she was only 4 months old as I knew I would not be able to support her without it. Luckily there are all kinds of grants out there for us single mom's to go back to school with, and financial aid that is enough to support yourself on if you are fruggal! ;-) You should check it out. Start at a community college and transfer to a university, that is what I did, although the financial aid at community colleges are not as much, a part time job, welfare (unfortunately, but was necessary) and the aid got me through, barely. Now I am only months away from a great career in Information Technology after working my buns off to get a Bachelors in Science degree from the University of Washington. I'm really proud of myself and am excited that I will be able to support my daughter in a way that she deserves. I wish you all the best and just look for grants, they are always out there, you just have to know where to look. ;-)Please don't read this as a non-understanding post but have you consulted with an Attorney, child services and family services?
There is NO reason that you should be left saddled with the liability of raising a family alone. Respectifully, it takes two to tango. The children did not arrive by stork or UPS. I would encourage you to seek
every avenue of help available to you and make the most of is. there is money for these situations as well as legal recourse - use them!
I wish you the best,
