I became homeless two days after I received notification from Dennis at Liberty Tax® that tax classes would began on Dec 15, 2014. All I could do is cry because I felt tremendous pressure to just give up and try again next year. Especially when the holidays are approaching and I wasn't sure how my son would respond to me telling him we have no where to live now. But something clicked inside of me and I jumped on the bus, grabbed my son from school and went to Liberty Tax® Class.
On the bus ride I had to fight back tears of feeling abandoned by my child's father and the (court) system but I knew that Liberty Tax® Class was mine and no one could take that away from me unless I gave up!
Once we arrived Beth saw my son and she immediately helped me get him settled in with crayons and Liberty Tax® coloring book. Tears flooded my face from gratitude for Beth's instincts and I was able to focus on class, not being homeless.
My son and I would like to say thank you Liberty Tax® and Beth for making us feel like family--- it isn't Christmas but it felt like Christmas Day seeing my son not affected by the realities of being a parent. Holidays are truly about giving back to someone who doesn't necessarily expect it. That's the greatest gift.
