    As This discussion makes clear, this modification maze is very difficult and treacherous.  It is largely driven by financial incentives to foreclose and many have lost their homes once caught in this nightmare.  Vera you and your husband are very fortunate to get a loan modification.  I hope you will work with those who are trying to fix the problems which HAMP does not solve.  Naked Capitalism and Firedoglake both have provided many excellent articles about these issues and are an excellent resource for folks caught up in this mess.  There is still much more that POTUS could do to help.  Many have not been so lucky.
    By the way, during my construction career, I always took lots of time to measure things as I built.  Once the job was completed, many would ask how I did it despite the difficulties.  I would always just answer "I got lucky."

      They were built because you finished the job you started.

      That's called an achievement instead.
