Thank you all....for everything

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.

 

 

A.J.H. was born on 3/7/09.

 

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,

Re: Thank you all....for everything

Congrats on baby. They truly are a blessing. You will now be armed with the knowledge of credit to pass down to him/her which many of us truly lacked in our younger years. Since joining this forum I have already been talking to my 6 year old about paying bills and some of the pitfalls of credit cards, (Insert her blank stare here).Smiley Happy
