i am going to be starting school next month, and hopefully Ian will be able to work nights so he can be home with Aidan during the day while i am in classes. but, just in case, i need ot have a daycare for him.
well, i called "Working Connections" a group that helps pay for childcare for low-income families... aparently, i cannot get it unless i am working at least 20 hours a week and going to to school full time, and my husband must be working too. i just cant work and go to school, i cannot because of my own health, the stress and also, i will never see Aidan and i cant do it. the woman said there is nothing else she can do, and there is no other groups that can help me pauy for the costs of childcare.
so, i dont know what to do- both sets of grandparents live an hour away and work, and i only have one friend who could possibly watch him, if it was an emergency (she has three kids under five).
i am just feeling discouraged and sad, i have been crying since i got off the phone.
does anyone have any suggestions?
