Take a deep breath!!! Okay, lots of options out there.
Look for another job with more or less money.
Friends, family, neighbors? Do you know anyone that might be willing to help. I had a friend that had an elderly lady that was a neighbor a few houses down from hers that was widowed and stayed to herself a lot. She started talking with her a little bit to get to know her and found out she had no family or anyone around and it was actually a "life saver" to the elderly woman to have my friend in her life and in turn for the friendship, she provided daycare free of charge so she could be a "grandma" that she never got to be. She wasn't really in a situation where she really needed daycare, but it ended up working for them. Maybe there's a good neighbor you haven't met yet!!!!
Start a daycare - govt assistance is available in most areas to get started, but you'll probably want a few kids in mind before you start this project.
You'll be okay and the right thing will happen for you!
