Michelle is looking into hiring a private speech therapist to visit with Joseph once per week so that his speech skills can continue improving. She found a local program that will cover half the cost but the only way she can cover the extra $100 per month is by getting a second, part-time job.

Michelle gets a part-time job and is making enough to cover speech therapy but she’s also had to hire a babysitter to keep her kids safe while she’s gone. At the end of every week, she’s feeling depleted both financially and physically.
