Rumble / Heartwarming Families"At this time last year, my family and I were homeless. We had to stay in basements, our car, a garage and an actual homeless shelter. It was a nightmare to say the least. It was devastating for my daughters especially. In January of this year, my husband and I were finally able to find a place that would accept us. So we moved into a very small 840 square feet apartment with 2 bedrooms - all four of us. We were thankful to have a place to call home, especially one that was bigger than a garage, but it was still tight for all of us. The girls shared a room and constantly argued. They desperately needed their own space. After all, they're pre-teens and only 9 months apart in age. So for this entire year, my husband and I worked diligently to make things better for our baby girls."

"Here is the video of us revealing a huge surprise to our girls just a couple days ago. They thought that we were helping our friend, Dorothy, move into her new house. My husband told the girls that our friend asked that we take pictures or a video so that she could have some before and after shots of her new home - that's the only way I could take video without the girls getting suspicious. Please be aware that this home is a work in progress and needs a little love so don't judge us when you see one of the My husband and I worked hard for this moment and we are all over the moon. Grab a tissue and be inspired."
