(AF) Two Farms FINALLY Merging Into One, but . . . .
We are losing my (Anna's) property to an illegal foreclosure. I am trying to make some time to write out all the details, all that has happened, is happening, and is going to happen, but for now, I will have to be brief. I need to get back to packing and building some more temporary/transport pens.
The payment here ballooned, even with a fixed rate. Over the last few years, it went up several hundred dollars! I tried to do a loan modification, took the steps they told me to take, but they had set me up to turn it into a foreclosure instead, which was their intention all along.
I have been here for 18 years, and these are the houses that the banks (in this case, Bank of America), are pouncing on! Everything they have done so far.is illegal, yet everything just keeps going right on through. I was still thinking I was in loan modification negotiations, then got a letter that I had one month to vacate because my house is being sold in a sheriff's sale on July 9t!. Only one month to move an entire farm of 18 years! Although it has been just me here for a long time, now, there are still 8 people's belongings here to go through and pack.
We now have only 2 weeks left and not nearly half way through. My COPD has badly flared up, along with my arthritis. Dave's arthritis is just BAD, to say the least. He is barely walking and can't at times. We have planned all along for me to move in with Dave and merge our farms, but we weren't quite there, not quite ready yet. We were turning Anna's Farm into a Homeless Eco Village and was laying the ground work here before we moved me over to Dave's Farm. We were getting close, and even had our first couple soon on their way (they were just waiting for a bus ticket), when all this hit.
What we really find odd, is that, all this time, we had mostly been working quietly on the Homeless Village. But as soon as we made our plans public and had our first couple on their way, the foreclosure hit. Coincidence? I think not!
Please keep us in your prayers and lifted up with your positive, energetic thoughts. Our bodies have already given out, money is all gone (each load is a 2 hour round trip) and we have a long, long way to go with the moving, and still have all of the ultra heavy stuff to move. At the moment, it looks impossible. Right now, it appears I will have to be walking away from half of my life long possessions and business supplies we have accumulated, but we aren't giving up! We are determined and positive that help will come from somewhere to help us get everything moved out of here.
Thank you for reading our post and staying with us, even when we are away for long periods of time. Have a blessed day!
