Dreams do come true
OK I will be the first to post in your success stories! Because I believe our story is a success story! I grew up here and I love Cape Breton but in my early 20s I wanted to go to Toronto and seek my fame and fortune well 28 years, a failed marriage and two children later my mom was getting up in years. Oh we came home every summer and the children usually stayed with my family for the whole summer while I went back and worked worked I did not want them to spend the summer in Toronto.... Every day I longed to be back home I spoke with everybody I could about how glorious our island was and most people agreed if they had ever been here.... Fast forward to almost 3 years ago my new wonderful boyfriend had never even heard of Cape Breton until he met me....we made the decision to quit our jobs pack up all her belongs in a 53 foot trailer and move back home. Neither one of us had a job or a place to live but we both came with marketable skills! Within days of moving here Bob found an excellent job and I have not been without work since moving here! Last year we bought a fantastic log home in Big Bras d'Or and compared to the prices in Ontario, a steal, with 16 of the most beautiful acres you've ever seen. I think the best decision we ever made. and now we have friends from Ontario just bought a house here and are moving down next month because this is such a wonderful place to raise their new baby girl. They both come with skills, he is a mechanic and she a firefighter. I assured them they wouldn't have a problem finding a job with their skill level. So dreams do come true kids don't give up on them! And stay in school because you need a marketable skill Haha
