We Have a Home

The biggest reason I have not been updating this website is the housing issues Desiree and I have been facing. Going into this, we knew it was going to be hard. Selling a house and finding a new house, as we have been doing, is difficult for everyone. But when you add the sad reality that in spite of the ADA having been law for nearly 33 years the entire process has been largely inaccessible to us, it has been a difficult time. Thanks to the love and support of Mom, Aunt Barb, and Desiree’s mom, we are very certain that Desiree’s home will be sold soon and that we will be buying our family’s home soon too.


While I will need to revisit the inaccessibility of the process later, I want to spend the rest of this post focusing on the thrill of the reality that in early August my dream will come true. In early August, I will be living with the love of my life, children I love and whom I can’t wait to help grow and reach their potential, and a home that is so wonderful for us.

Dreaming of spending Saturday nights with Mom and Aunt Barb sharing a dinner and great company with us is so exciting. I can’t wait for the girls to get to know Mom and Aunt Barb. I know they will love them as much as I do.

I’m so glad that when Desiree’s mom and her oldest daughter visit they will have a space they will be able to have to themselves. And, of course, I can’t wait to have them spending time with what is now a new, wonderful, extended family for all of us.

Christmas is going to be amazing this year. Sure, it has been nice spending Christmas with Desiree and the kids the last two years, but having our extended family together in our home for Christmas would be incredible! I hope we can make that happen.

The last couple of months have been very stressful. At times they have been challenging. But throughout those difficult times, we have stuck together and loved our way to the finish line. In a few weeks, our new home will be ours. In three months I will be living my lifelong dream.

I have always believed that if I worked hard enough and did the right things I would land on my feet. In a few months, I will be on more wonderful ground than I could have ever imagined possible.

  1. It definitely has been a process. We have worked through it together, and it means so much to me too. I can’t wait to spend evenings with our family in our home. This is a dream I too am so excited about. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you.
