Auction for Sarah

We are having an auction for this young lady May 16th through the 18th. Below is her timeline of events happening.

September 6th, 2007
I was in a car accident. It was considered a no-fault accident, so my insurance wouldn't covered my totaled Sable. I hadn't had my air-bags checked in a while and ended up very bruised.

November 1st, 2007
Accidental house fire in Highland, KS making me move back to Topeka and drop out of the college there. The fire was started from a small propane torch igniting itself on the front porch. We had to climb out of a window to escape. I didn't have renter's insurance so I lost everything without compensation.

December 24th, 2007
My step-mother passes away at 37 years old due to a heart attack after a week stay in the hospital. I stayed next to her bed side until she passed.
My nephew also passes away due to being born premature. He was alive for about a half an hour.
We couldn't pay for the funerals and ended up in debt just trying to cover what we could. My step-mother still does not have a head stone.

February 4th, 2008
I was involved in another car accident, this one more severe. I had just bought a truck. Paid 5,900 on the truck. It still had its 30-day tag on it. A 17-year-old kid ran a red light and right into us. They did not have insurance and I only had liability. The truck was totaled and there was no compensation on it, even though it was not my fault. I ended up having to stay in the hospital for a little while, as I was very pregnant and the collision bruised my belly pretty bad.

Early March
I am ordered to bedrest and have to take off of work. Trying to pay all of our bills, including my college tuition and a mound of hospital bills, becomes extremely hard. I do not have medical insurance and I have gal stones. I'm going to have surgery to remove my gal bladder during my stay from the birth. My fiance works very had at a fast food restaurant, but does not make enough for us to even cut even.

March 16th, 2008
My family's home burns to the ground. This one's cause is still unknown. The two-story home collapsed upon itself making it a complete loss. Everything that we worked so hard to build back up, was taken away, again.

My family is homeless. My fiance and I are trying to get a new place, but are having so much difficulty. I am almost 9 months pregnant, and we are having to bounce from couch to couch between family members, just to have a place to sleep at night. We had our hopes for a nice place, but we don't have the credit for it. Every day, we are getting more and more in debt and there is nothing that we can do about it.
I joined Pure Romance, using money that we really did not have hoping that we might be able to come out closer to even every month. As well, I want to do what I can to stay at home with my daughter. She is the one thing that keeps me going and she isn't even born, yet! I'm just afraid that I won't have much for her.
