No longer homeless :-)
Our process to get to this home was amazingly humorous. The house had been listed that morning and I had emailed and left my phone number , but forgotten a number. Fortunately, the lady didn’t give up on me but emailed me back. I gave her my full number and she called and we set up an 11:00 appt. I was excited about this place. Dwight found 4 more places to call (we’d upped our budget a bit and decided that a furnished place is the only way to go). We had a 9:00 appt about an hour out of town and a 2:00 appt locally (but spendy). We looked at 2 more inbetween and one was horrific, the other turned us down.
We arrived early to our appt and waited for the owner to get back from Hilo. I started crying, it was so peaceful and perfect. The lady liked us, despite the fact that we had 5 (soon to be 6) children. Its overwhelming to some. But, the boys won her heart (YEAH!) and she decided she liked us. She’d have to talk to her husband. She left us to go get an application, came back and asked us when we’d like to move in. We said right now, if possible, paid the cash, and had a home … just like that. Praise the Lord!! Thank you to all that were praying, for it really did seem to be a miracle.
