It is depressing to observe these families’ challenges in a society where many families experience constant terror as a result of domestic abuse.
The sad truth is that some people are reluctant to end violent relationships and begin new ones. Despite these difficulties, tales of extraordinary fortitude and tenacity surface.
Cara Brookins, a mother of four, is one such example. Despite having little money, she made the extraordinary decision to set off on a voyage that would forever alter the path of her family’s life.
For years, Cara Brookins, a survivor of a controlling, violent, and prolonged relationship, dreamed of giving her four children a safer home.
The mother from Arkansas was aware that she couldn’t afford a home large enough for them. Cara made a decision in 2008 that would change her life more than she could have ever imagined. She moved her family to a modest cottage close to Little Rock, Arkansas, while feeling both fear and resolution.
“We passed a house that had been completely devastated by a tornado while en route to a rental cabin for Thanksgiving. In an interview with THV11, Cara recounts that her dream house “presented itself.”
Behind those confines, Cara saw a better life for herself and her kids. She didn’t have the money to buy a house, but she thought she could build one with a little assistance. Cara made the decision to build her 3,500 square foot home from the bottom up because she was determined to alter things. She made sure that each of her children got their own room.
Cara and her kids, who had no prior construction experience, used YouTube lessons and local tradesmen as their guides. They began the difficult job of creating their ideal home with the assistance of friends and family.
They attracted the attention and admiration of people all around the world with their amazing journey and victory over hardship. Their experience is a monument to the strength of resiliency, creativity, and unflinching resolve.
