Eli and Asa's House
Organized by: Eli Asa
I wish I were on the verge of curing cancer, eradicating world hunger or some other noble cause but I'm just a dad. My boys are 4 and 6. In December their mother left us to pursue her drug and alcohol addiction. In addition to addiction there were also issues with physical and emotional abuse. After she left my boys became withdrawn and started to exhibit behavioral problems. Their school work also started to suffer. I realized the need to make some changes. About two months ago we decided to move out of our dilapidated rental. I found 2 acres in a wonderful community with a great school. We have been welcomed with open arms. The boys have been helping me build our house. They are happy and back on track with their school. When I first talked to the owner about selling he stated the closing costs to be around $2000. I got the closing documents about 1 week before closing. I was shocked to see closing costs close to $4000. I was able to push the date back to the end of May but I'm still going to be a little short. The thought of my boys having to suffer another loss is causing me to loose sleep. The stress is also starting to affect my health. I can see a happy life for my boys. They deserve much better than the hand life has delt them so far. I know that the recent changes are a step in the right direction. We just need a little help to get over this first hurdle.
