I am trying to secure the home my son was born in, the home i grew up in, and a home that has been in my family for decades.

Due to several factors, my mother had to allow her home to go into foreclosure.  This is the home I grew up in, and the home my son was born in and spent the first 5 years of his life in.

It is set to go up for auction, and I am desperate to procure this home. I am willing to repay (overtime) any amount someone is willing to lend. I do have a low credit score, which is preventing me from getting a home loan/mortgage. I have been in my current job for 4 years, I work hard to ensure my son has everything he needs, and right now what he needs is a home.  We are currently renting a mobile home where the space is limited, the landlord will not repair the holes or leaks.

I know financial responsibility is a must have in today's economy, and if I could go back and change how things were handled, I would in a heart beat. I acquired 2 credit cards, both with a credit limit of $300 to help with living expenses. My son obtained 3rd degree burns to his forearms while in the care of his biological mother, spent several months in the hospital, had several skin grafts, and eventually his insurance stopped paying for his medical coverage, so I had little financial choice - it was a sink or swim decision. I tried to swim.

As I stated, I am trying to pay off my debts, to bring my score up, but I am scared that by the time this is done, this home, our home will be gone. I am willing to abide by any terms you may have in regards to repayment (as long as they are reasonable.)

If there is anything else you would like to know, please do not hesitate to ask me.
