It is typically difficult for the average person to provide for and care for a family. People often work extremely long hours or pick up extra jobs in order to provide a home and the necessities of life for those they love. One couple worked two jobs to keep their family finances afloat. The extra work was not unnoticed, especially by their son, LeJuan James, who bought his parents a home as a way to thank them for their hard work and love.
James is a YouTube producer who usually makes videos about himself. With these funny videos, he became a star and entertained thousands of people. Nevertheless, James knows all too well how much people have struggled, especially his own family.
His mother worked two jobs. I worked as a housekeeper at Disney and as a cashier at Walgreens, taking evening shifts. James’ father also worked two jobs.
On the night shift, he worked as a maintenance man and a cashier at Burger King. Their love for each other and their family is as consistent as their work life, and they have been together for over 30 years.
James finally realized his lifelong dream of buying his parents a house when he finally had the ability to do so. Read on to find out more about this heartwarming story.

James always appreciated his parents’ hard work and sacrifices, regardless of whether he expressed it out loud. As reported by E! His dream of repaying his parents finally came true in 2017, after several years of dreaming. He was finally able to buy a house for his parents after months of planning. According to James:
“You don’t understand how hard your parents work when you’re young and naive. My parents worked multiple shifts and worked overnights to take care of us, three of us. You don’t really understand money until you’re a little older, then you understand how hard it is to earn it and how easy it is to spend it.”
At the end of 2016, one of my new year resolutions was to do that for them. Last year, I invested in myself, and now I want to invest in them.”
James blindfolded his parents and brought them into their new neighborhood that day. As soon as he reached their new house, he removed his parents’ blindfolds. The couple shed tears of joy when they discovered what their son had done. During this particular moment, James was also overcome with emotion.
“It means a lot to me,” he told E! The news. Because of what they went through, I think people understand a lot more than they do.
This was such a beautiful, touching moment!
