On this particular day, everything just seemed right in the world.
I had found a home that I really liked that was in a very nice neighborhood with excellent schools. When I set out to buy my home, I never believed that I could find anything like this.
This was a time when homes sold as soon as they came on the market. As a matter of fact, I had put in bids for 2 other homes, but I was always second. This time, I was the first offer.
My loan had been approved and I realized for the first time that I could make it on my own. In that moment, I felt pure joy and elation, because I knew that my kids and I were going to be just fine.
