GREENSBORO -- A Greensboro immigrant couple watched the walls of their first home go up Wednesday, marking a milestone in what they call their "American dream."
Joseph and Kadiatu Bajon are originally from West Africa and have rented a Greensboro apartment for the past few years. But, they have a new baby boy and have been dreaming about when they might be able to move into a permanent home. Last month, they applied for a Habitat house and found out they were approved.
"I feel so proud, so humbled. I'm going to be raising my son in a house, not an apartment," said Kadiatu Bajon.
The house they're receiving is the first donated to Habitat by the Wyndham Championship. During tournament play in August, the house was the fan-favorite "Key to Wyn" building, where fans could swipe key cards and win prizes. It has since been disassembled and transported to a lot in Greensboro's Quail Oaks subdivision.
Joseph Bajon said, "To me, the American dream is having a home, a car and a stable job. We come from West Africa, so this is a dream come true. We've been praying to have our own place."
Volunteers started reassembling the house Wednesday morning and hope to have the project completed by February or March.
