In addition to the fact that I was fired, my family member has also had medical problems.
We do want to save our home and do not want to lose it to foreclosure. We are accustomed to paying our bills on time. Both my wife and I realize that our delinquency is early in our contract, however the circumstances which have brought us to this juncture in our life we could not control. We are asking for your consideration and help.
Although we are not in a position to bring our mortgage current, things have stabilized. We are seeking your assistance under the loss mitigation program.

We have been advised by our counselor to continue to save as much money as we can during this process.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
