Jane recently shared her testimonial with Human Defense Initiative (HDI). Here is what Jane had to say about her situation and how HDI helped her and her daughter Ashlynn:
"HDI was the biggest blessing to Ashlynn and I. I was introduced to Skyler through a friend I had met at a church group. Not knowing what to expect, and too many stressors to count, I wasn't sure how she or this organization was going to be able to help me in my situation. Now a single mother expecting my first child with no job and no relatives or friends to turn to, I was skeptical to say the least. I had no idea how this was going to go.
I first reached out to Skyler for assistance with searching for work which would still help me maintain raising my daughter from home. Not only was she the only person who took time out to research and send me all the resources she had, she actually took time to listen to me and just lend an ear when I needed to vent. It was like having a sister I never knew I had. In addition to being an amazing person/friend, when she had never met me, HDI managed to make sure my daughter Ashlynn has everything she needs. I couldn't believe how helpful she was with guiding me in creating my list for the registry too! After all, I had never done this before. I had no idea what I was actually going to need. She also included little gifts for us both such as amazing books for me and my daughter.
I am forever grateful for the relationship we have built and it was all due to HDI helping people in need (such as myself) at a time I needed it most. I can't help but to wonder sometimes where we would be without HDI and Skyler for all the help they provided. They helped turn my biggest fear into the biggest blessing ever. I would recommend them to anyone who truly needs help to stay positive. Somehow things always have a way of working out in the end. If not, then clearly it's not the end."
