Many people will be familiar with the struggle of dragging themselves out of bed in the morning to get to work. For Tami Forbes, however, that struggle was tougher than it would be for most – given that she was a pregnant single mom, working two jobs just to get by. That all changed, though, when a millionaire made her a truly incredible offer – and it left Forbes in tears.
At the start of 2014, Forbes was recently divorced and heavily pregnant. She worked as a store manager in a small key lime pie business by day, while working shifts at a bar when time allowed. But that wasn’t all. She was also raising eight-year-old twins: a boy and a girl named Max and Julia.
Despite having two jobs, though, the hard-working single mom still wasn’t financially secure. A significant contributing factor behind that was the fact that she would need a cesarean to deliver her child. And, as she didn’t have medical insurance, the operation would cost her thousands – potentially putting the procedure out of her reach.
