Since this site and more importantly this thread has been such a tremendous help to me and my family in our quest and since I consider you all friends I'd like to make and announcement.

This of course brings on added responsibility of which I now have thanks to all of you. Your advice on all matters has helped me basically from no score to a 700 or close:-) on all the reports. I joined this site basically by mistake about 2 years ago and WOW, the things I've learned. without you....all of you I would have been so very lost. Unable to buy a home ( which I can easily qualify for now), get my wife a minivan (which I'm approved for), or get higher limits on the cards your advice helped me qualify for.
From my first post until now and beyond the help you've given me has guided me. I don't want to be dramatic but this site and the wisdom gained here basically saved our way of life and I've used this to help others in my life as well. Again thanks for everything and what I've learned here will not only help my family but every one I touch....I touch my heart for you all,
Congratulations to you and your spouse on your new beautiful baby boy! They are, indeed an amazing blessing.
It looks like the FICO family has grown by two little hands and two little feet. Welcome to world little baby!
Friendly, Supportive & Respectful

And I'm so happy for you that you were able to get your financial life in order before little A J arrived. Good luck to you and your family.
