Single Mother, 7 Children
Playing soccer and telling jokes
Tomas is the youngest of 7 children to single Mother Amparo. All of his older siblings are young adults, and have already left home. Tomas is a very intelligent young man, who is a definite jokester and loves to laugh and have fun in CDL’s Youth Mentorship Program. He keeps us laughing all the time! Tomas and Amparo have been apart of CDL since the fall of 2016, when Amparo came to CDL desperately asking for help as her son Tomas recently returned to live with her (he had been living with his Father) and she had no one to care for him while she worked. Amparo works at a local restaurant operated by another CDL mom, Marilu. She is currently working towards finishing her high school education and is studying English here with us at CDL. We believe that God brought Tomas and his mother Amparo here to Primo Tapia and here to Casa de Luz for a reason, and we have already seen during the time that they’ve been with us how God has been working in each of them in giving them this fresh start.
