That's wonderful that Stone Equity is so very generous, and that Ms. Sutton has a place to live now. But, won't she have to pay income taxes on whatever the home is valued at?

I think that's wonderful for her and her family. I think the best family won and hopefully this is just the beginning of better things happening for her and her kids. Kudos to you and best of luck in the future.

Congratulations to Ms.Sutton and her children. Her ex certainly is a real jerk and I'm glad we can all read about him now. What kind of man would let his children live on the streets instead of in a decent home?

Because the woman clearly doesn't know her or her children's rights. I'm sure that after this exposure, she'll be collecting child support and alimony. Good for her.

How can the father of these children get away with this ? he,s living nice in Hilliard and his minor children are on the streets homeless . I don,t give a D___, what country he came from he should be made to follow the laws in this country , or just maybe he,s a American and the mother does not know how to make him support these children .or scare her about the laws in the USA , immigrants are good at giving each other legal advice . JOB and FAMILY SERVICES !!!!! go get him make him paid , real men do not have to be force to take care of their children , he thinks cause he,s be in US military he,s above caring for his children ($$$$$), If he were still in the military and they get wind of this story , I;m sure they give him a dishonorable discharge , because he is a disgrace ! are military makes real men, responsible men, not sissy dead beat as this father, Mother of the children post his picture and the story what he done to you , and how he,s not supporting his children ( in public places in up class Hilliard ) I bet you,ll see some support for your children then , that would let the community know he,s not a up standing citizen he,s one of those DEAD BEAT FATHER,S ,

To the rest of the greed mongers...SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE! This is the way it should be and hopefully a harbinger of things to come. Now, we've got to convince the elected prostitutes (read Senators & Reps.)to amend the laws to enable this to continue to happen without the beneficiary incurring a penalty from the biggest thief of all...The US Government.

Huraah and Kudos to Stone Equity!!! Wow a real home for this lady and her kids!
But, what about the crazy husband? What did she do for him to "NOT ALLOW HER OR THE KIDS NEAR HIS HOUSE?" Is it legal for him to keep all of her stuff? That's just weird. But, this is a new start and congrats to her for writting the winning essay.
God Bless her and her children!

I am so happy the house went to a mother in need, with children. Thank you Stone Equity for being receptive to children without a home.

Are they taking donations for furniture, clothes, food, an attorney to go after this poor excuse of a human being that she and her children had the misfortune of knowing? What a worthless dead beat this jerk is. Sounds like Bill Winter, here in Ashville. Shame on these asses.
I hope this family gets a lot of donations and only good things will continue to follow them for a very long time. Tell me where to send donations.

Karelyn,
Kira and I are so happy for you and the kids. This could not have come at a better time and we are glad you were fortunate to have not only become a finalist but to actually win the home. We offer our thanks to Stone Equity for offering this once in lifetime chance to our friend.

Wow,
Good for this mother and her kids what a good thing
what a great gift to them is there any lawyer that can read this and help this woman? what is all of this? is it legal what he is doing? him in the house and no having to pay for place for them to live in??? how can this man go to bed every night and rest and no having to worry about his kids and wife...this is very messed up I think after this I hope someone out there and the law should start taking action on him . in other comments I think that negative comment above from the friend of the family has to be him.

I hope Stone Equity does a credit check before they hand over the keys. And I hope the kids get to see their dad soon.
Why would you hope the kids get to see their worthless dad soon? According to your own words, he goes to school and has lunch with them. I think one or all of your statements has to be lies! Pretty bad when when you make yourself out a liar. You just can't have it both ways and be stupid enough to believe what you just said. Also what bills is he paying? These kids and her are homeless according to the article. Last I heard, people don't pay bills to live in the streets or with friends if they don't have money. Be thankful she has friends who cared as opposed to the loser who didn't care.

NOOOO WAAAYY!!!

I do k now this family his name is MARTIN SUTTON he is a chief Warrant Officer of the Ohio Army National Guard... what a shame I had worked with him in fact I was deployed with him in Afghanistan 2003-2004 very hard and difficult person to work with in other words he is an ass and now i just confirmed what I had always thought about him as a matter of fact he got arrested back in 1989 if I remember right for steeling goverment Property way to go Chief and now he has his children and wife out in the street now he is steeling from the wife and kids I guess he did a smart move getting himself a wife from out of country and bring her here and do this to her I think he better get himself a good lawyer to get out of this one just like he did back in 1989 I am sure WE the soldiers who are proud of this country and we defend it to make it a better place we are not going to be proud of assholes like this one (time to wake up Chief Sutton)
