What can I do if my mortgage has been repeatedly sold and transferred and now the maturity date has changed?

Question Details: We refinanced our house 16 years ago for $65,000. Our loan was then sold to a bank that subsequently went under at which point it was sold to another financial company. I did fall behind a few times while it was with the last lender but always paid the money to catch it up. Then, 5 years ago, my husband became disabled and was earning no income and we also took custody of grandkids so that they didn't go into foster care; we qualified for our state's hardest hit fund. They paid our mortgage for 2 years and we had to pay taxes on the money as if it was an income. then the 3rd lender sold out mortgage to another lender. It was originally a 30 year mortgage but when it got sold this 4th and final time, somehow the maturity date turned into 2054 when it should have been 2033. We still owe$61,000 on the property. How can I still owe much money? How can that be possible?
