The woman’s family life was going pretty tough. Cara’s two marriages were filled with disrespect and violence from her husband. Humiliation and verbal abuse, stalking and bullying became a usual part of Cara’s life. She endured it for the sake of her kids, even though the woman could see that they wouldn’t be able to hold on for long in such a toxic environment. But the mother of four didn’t have any money to purchase or even rent some dwelling. So she had to put up with the terrible behavior of her husband.

I worried that if they (children) left home I’d never see them again.

– told Brookins.

At the age of 45, Cara came to the realization that they couldn’t go on like that. Her husband would strangle and beat the woman in front of her children. Once, on her way home with children, Cara noticed a house foundation left after a tornado. It was then that got the idea to build her own house. They needed a safe place that would belong only to them.

And the mother made a decision, even though it was really hard to get away from the aggressive husband. Cara managed to get a loan from a bank, invested $150,000 in the materials, and put down $20,000 for the piece of land. And so together they started building a new home. They had to watch tutorials on YouTube as none of the family members knew what and how to go about building a home.

We were exceptionally naive, but sometimes ignorance takes the place of courage.

– remembers Cara.

Moreover, working together united the Brookins family, helping them to improve communication. 15-year-old Drew helped his mom with the blueprints, and the little ones helped with smaller tasks. Sometimes Cara had to work at nights. Everyone was skeptical about the idea and considered the woman crazy – but not her kids.
