What advice do you have for others?
do not change for the world change the world for you your children do not be afraid to fail or make a choice you are either a leader or a follower teach your young to be leaders there are to many followers out there this is your life you are allowed to fall stand back up make mistakes and you shouldn't be labeled for them so do not ever turn around when you want something go for it and repeat it if you fail if you fall stand back up and smile because you haven't lost

my children when we had to move into a 2 bedroom apartment mainly my son with down syndrome he constantly cried pointing to a picture saying home momma home he done that for a good 5 months it really made me wonder how many families were out there going through this my kids motivate me and i don't have parents i lost both and my baby sister so its not like i could run to my mom-mas house and cry i had to pretend i was ok in front of my kids when in reality i wanted my mom so i am more motivated when i want my mom and cant let my blessing from god down he trusted me to be there parent so i will not let him down

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
yes foremost insurance and the adjuster also the contractor who quoted me that insane proposal had they not done this i would still be clueless and would not get the chance to do what i am hoping to do for other families
