All families have a story — some more positive than others.
Although not always the case today, children have long inherited their family heirlooms — or of course, places of residence.
Back in the day, it was common to simply inherit everything that belonged to your family’s past generations; and choosing your own way of life was not often an option.
If daddy was a shoemaker, then so would you be. You would take over the family business, all belongings, and be responsible until your own child then took over from you.
David lives in Nebraska, USA. His family have been farmers for as long as he could remember; for decades the land they used belonged to his ancestors.
And this should have been the way forward for David. But one day, an unfortunate decision willed the land to a relative who did not have the family’s best interests in mind.
David’s family’s 80 acres of land was sold to a distant relative and the family’s property was gone. What they had spent decades building vanished in a split-second bank interaction.
Throughout his life, David dreamed of somehow getting back the family’s land and rebuild their business.
Several years after losing the family land, it suddenly appeared on auction. David and his father decided they would do their best to collect whatever modest means they had to try to get it back, reports goodnewsnetwork.com.
They spent many days and sleepless nights trying to come up with every possible way to acquire the extraordinary assets to reclaim their land. When the day of the auction finally came, their hearts sank: nearly 200 farmers were gathered. David and his father felt their chances of repossessing their family land was slim to none.
