Your Mom and I lost our jobs. So for now we will be homeless, but we are going to stay with your Aunt for a few days.
This family of four has recently became homeless.
What! We can't be homeless?
Hey guys, your going to being staying here for a few days. Only until your parents find new jobs. That's where they are right now.
What am I going to do about school? All my friends will find out. Poor baby Liam doesn't even know whats happening.
I wish someone would tell me whats happening. Emily looks so sad, I just want to go back home.
I can't believe both of our bosses fired us, and we had to give up our house.
It's so hard to find work now too. Emily is really upset about it and little Liam just wants to go home. At least we can stay with your sister for now. Its not like we are the only homeless people 3 million Americans are homeless every year.
Jessica, we are homeless we don't have a permanent place to live. The children are scared and embarrassed we have to understand that. We need to figure out how to get jobs no matter how hard it is.
Come on it's not that bad. Liam thinks it's just a normal visit. But Emily doesn't want to go to school and hear people talking about us.
We can't stay with my sister forever we need to look into homeless shelters. James, I know we want to blame the government for high housing rates and our bosses for firing us but we could have worked harder.
I know I'm so disappointed in myself for letting this happen to our family.
Liam and I finally got some new clothes!
4 months later
That's great! Your Dad and I are looking into some new jobs and are trying to get into a homeless shelter.
