The daughter of a Women Build homebuyer sent us this note, complete with illustration:
I like how many people helped mommy build my habitat. I liked when every one hammered. It is ok if you did it wrong. My favorite part of my habitat is my kitchen and my big room. I'm happy [site supervisor] Troy helped my mommy and the other people build my habitat.
The mother also shared her reflections (though without a drawing):
Becoming a Habitat homeowner has changed my life and given a whole new meaning to the word 'home.' I never have to worry about where or when I have to move. My daughter had lead poisoning from our old apartment, but now I don't have to worry about whether my home is safe for her.
When I applied to be a homeowner at the age of 18, I didn't think I had a chance. Being accepted was the best thing that could have ever happened. I am so happy that Habitat for Humanity provided this opportunity to have safe, stable housing for my family!
