They were crippled by a banking crisis and soaring national debt, by public despair, by their own lack of experience and by internecine strife - yet they nearly succeeded.
In the end, it was the actions of other leaders that decided their fate.
He didn't know how to carefully ask questions of his future bride, and ended up in a very difficult marriage to Shannon.
Shannon cleaned their home three times, and then decided that she'd rather not do the work.

If your child is dealing with a serious medical condition and bills are piling up, contact a hospital social worker or a medical billing advocate (Bill Advocates.com).
