Disrupted By Overnight Shifts

As a single mom, I work hard to make sure my child has everything that he need. Sometimes it can be really hard but I do my best. I found a rhythm with my new job at McDonald’s and the schedule was working great. My son had daycare taken care of so I didn’t have to worry about him while I worked. But one day I looked at my work schedule my boss had scheduled me for two weeks of overnight shifts! This completely messed up the rhythm I had built and now I was worried on how my son could be taken care of while I worked these shifts.

Thankfully, I was able to get in contact with Safe Families for Children. My son was placed with Matt and Stacy who did a wonderful job helping me out. We had nightly phone calls, exchanged texts, and kept up communication in general. I felt like they cared for my son like he was their own. That gave me peace of mind. Safe Families was a real blessing to me in my time of need! Thank you for all that you do!
