Oh, where to begin? 

From an email turning into me going crazy, because I overthink everything. To me asking the same questions because I lost a paper or an email got delated. No matter what it may have been, you all were there. NO questions asked. You guys have went above and beyond for me and my girls and we are so grateful. I know that its your “job” but you make it feel like its more than just your “job.” The love and support you have shown will never go unnoticed.

We are forever grateful for each and every one of you and couldn’t have made it through this process without your guidance. Thank you so much for everything.

Dear Habitat for Humanity, family friends and volunteers,

It has been such a joyful experience working with you all. I want to thank all of those who helped me on this journey. The staff, volunteers and the trades. All of us working together has made the dream of home ownership come true for me.

Knowing that I have a safe place to raise my son, a place where we can make happy memories together, and a place to foster new friendships means the world to me. I can hardly wait to start this new adventure in our lives.

After living in a not-so-safe place for seven-and-a-half years, I can hardly believe that my dream is finally a reality!

I also want to thank everyone who pushed me to keep going when I became overwhelmed these past two years. I know in the beginning I wasn’t the easiest person to work with, but Christine and Jess didn’t give up on me. They have taught me a lot about how to become a responsible homeowner, and how to be prepared financially and mentally for the challenge. Habitat feels like a second home to me.

In closing, I want to thank my friend, Jane Skinner, who drove me everyday and stayed late volunteering with me at the ReStore so I could get my hours. My mom, Kim Palmer, who has pushed me and encouraged me to keep going and stay focused. My boyfriend, Scott Sharp, who has been an amazing help in the construction and sod department. The Nyts’ family, and my new neighbors, who show up everyday to help wherever it’s needed.

Again, I want to thank you all for blessing us with your kindness and help. This is proof that it sometimes takes a village and proves that working together we can accomplish great things.
