Single Mother, 1 Child
Doing crafts at CDL
Angela is the only daughter living at home with her single mother Maria Esther. She has 5 older brothers and sisters that live on their own in other parts of Mexico and the US. Angela is a very intelligent and friendly little girl, who has adjusted very well to becoming a part of the CDL family. Before coming to CDL, Maria Esther was struggling to find care for her daughter, often leaving her home alone because she had no other alternative for care and couldn't afford to pay for someone to watch Angela while she worked. She arrived at CDL desperate for help. Angela and her Mother have had a great deal of instability, and only since coming to CDL have found the security and stability in their lives that they so desperately needed. Maria Esther is a very hard working Mother. She works cleaning condos in a local gated community, earning 1200 pesos (approximately $90 CDN) for a week of work. Esther is also attending CDL’s ESL class on Wednesday evenings, and has found community amidst one of La Hermosa’s small groups. We continue to pray for this family, that God would bless Maria Esther and Angela, heal them, and really touch their hearts so that they can realize the dreams and plans that God has for them.
