"I’m a success story, but I just want people to know that this did not happen overnight."

"I’m a success story, but I just want people to know that this did not happen overnight."

“I never thought this day right here would come because for the last couple years all I’ve been thinking is ‘We’re gonna be in a tent for the rest of our lives’ and then [my boyfriend] had a stroke down there… and I almost got frostbitten, they cut my tent up and stole from me... I can’t say it’s all been bad… My tent became my home. It really did.” 

“It’s been a long waiting process cuz we’ve been on the waiting list for like three years for any kind of metro house… So all of a sudden this year, they called, they emailed us and said that... he was gonna get it this year. They pulled him out of the lottery... I had to advocate and keep following through... And it was a bumpy road waiting on them… And I gave it to God. I was going to the church on Saturday mornings, and I just prayed, and I said ‘What’s wrong? I know I ain’t no saint.’ I said, ‘We are tired. I don’t understand why.’ And the preacher, he said ‘You know why it’s so hard right now?’ He said, ‘You know why you struggling and the Devil’s beating you right now?’ I said ‘Why?’ He said ‘Cuz you're on the verge of a breakthrough.’ I promise you that’s what he told me.”

“I said, ‘Look. Listen. I gave it to God. I told God it’s what I wanted.’ I said, ‘I don’t care what y’all say. God gonna give me my house for Christmas. And I’m done, I don’t even wanna talk no more about it.’ I told everybody it’d be Wednesday. She called Monday and said ‘You can move in Tuesday.’”

“Tell you real genuine, I go down there, and I see people down there still. At first, I felt bad cuz we were leaving, but then I don’t feel bad because I know we put in the work to get out of there... I mean, just cuz I’m out, I’m still the same [name] that lived in that tent down there. I don’t think I’m better. I’m still the same… I’m like, ‘Y’all are my family, I’m still coming back over here’ to visit them. I’m just basking in it… I’m a success story, but I just want people to know that this did not happen overnight or in a couple of months; this has taken some years, so I have a right to boast cuz this has been a long time coming.”
