If you've ever seen "We Bought a Zoo" with Matt Damon, then you've basically met the Sweeting family. Although they might live a similar life, they have their own unique story that will surely inspire you. Nathan, his wife and two children call the Smooth Waters Wildlife Center their home and sanctuary. In September of last year, Nathan signed a contract to purchase an existing animal facility and began renovations a month later.
After pouring their hearts, souls and entire life's savings into the restoration of the zoo, they are now faced with a preexisting bank mortgage on the property. The bank is already beginning the foreclosure process but the family is hoping to save their home and continue forward with the life they've created. If you feel compelled to donate, you can visit their GoFundMe page to learn more of their story.
Nathan joins our RightThisMinute hosts via Skype to tell of his experiences, family and hopes for the future.
