I am a single mom, and we are building a house. We were supposed to be approved for a USDA loan the day after the shut down took place. We have been living in an apartment, and the kids have been so excited about moving into a house. This was our chance to have stability again after the divorce 3 years ago. The shut down has me on pins and needles watching the gov't try to make a deal to reopen. My kids keep asking us when we are moving.. it's been sad and frustrating to say the least!
