Why should she have the house she bought herself??? And land??
She wanted to pay for an extension on her own property that she bought..
The stupid council refused planning permission on work on her own house and land for bedrooms for the kids
All work paid for by HER!
BS or what!!?edit on 13-1-2012 by EvanB because: (no reason given)
Julie also had a grant application for an extension to make her home more suitable turned down by the council.
A formal proposal submitted to a government or civilian entity that outlines a proposed project and shows budgetary requirements and requests monetary assistance in the form of a grant

I have to be honest, I don't see this as amazing. The amazing thing is that people think she's a hero.
No, she's a normal human being, doing the best she can. I mean, what would you do for your best friend's/ sibling's kids? Watch them get split up in foster homes, in different towns and different schools?
Newsworthy? Sure (local news only).
She's some kind of incredible hero? For doing the obvious, decent thing? That reaction kinda makes me sad.
