A Mid-South family recalls having their son only six months into pregnancy

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The McCain family was very excited when they found out after seven years of marriage, they were expecting.

At the same time, they understood this would be a high-risk pregnancy. Nevertheless, they still saw it as a blessing.

Six months into the pregnancy, Stephania McCain began having contractions. Her son RJ was ready to make his entrance into the world, ahead of schedule.

Stephania said she was caught off guard.

“I was barely six months pregnant,” Stephania said. “I was like, what do you mean?”

Stephania had dilated three centimeters, and there was a tear in the amniotic sack, causing fluid to leak. Her doctors attempted to stop the contractions with no success, and four days later, RJ was born.

He was tiny.

“They were holding him like this,” Stephania said, showing the palms of her hands.

Bradenton family says two-week repair has left them without a home for nearly three months

BRADENTON, Fla. (WFLA) – Sherrie Guevara and her three daughters have been staying with family members and friends since early July when a repair project began inside their apartment unit in Bradenton.

“After the initial first two weeks, every time I would contact my landlord to ask for an update, he would tell me it would be another week, and then the following week it would be another week, and then the following week it would be another week,” said Guevara.

She says nearly three months without a stable place to live has been tough.

“It has been very stressful because I have been displaced with three of my kids. We are in the middle of COVID feeling kind of homeless at this point not having

KB Home Can See ~30% Upside Over The Next 12 To 18 Months As Build-To-Order Headwinds Turn Into Tailwinds (NYSE:KBH)

KB Home (KBH) is an entry level homebuilder with ~55% of its deliveries to first-time home buyers, ~22% of its deliveries to first move-up buyers and rest 23% to second move-up and active adult buyers combined.
