I did it. I sold the house. I put an ad in the news paper offering the house to a couple or small family who has someone in it that is serving in Iraq or Afganistan and got several inquiries. I did decide to finance it for them myself like I had planned to do and chose a young couple with a baby on the way. You have to realize that this is a small 2 bedroom house so a larger family just wouldn’t be able to stay in such a small house but it’s perfect for a young couple.
I fell in love with this young mother-to-be the moment I met her. Her husband won’t be here for the birth of their child unfortunately so I had my fix-it guy do whatever she wanted done to the babies room as my gift to them. She’s having a boy so the room was painted blue on top with white chair railing. The bottom, one wall is painted with paint that makes it like a chalk board so the little fella can draw to his hearts content on the wall and not hurt a thing.
A dear friend of mine is quite an artist and painted the other three walls to look like the woods with critters through out the woods. I must say, the whole room looks great and there’s a big picture of Daddy framed over the childs bed so Daddy can watch over his son until he get’s home.
I’m currently looking for another small house to do the same thing with. No I’m not going to get rich off of these houses money wise, but I feel rich within my soul for being able to help these young people that are giving so much for our country. God bless them all.
