Single Mother, 2 Children
Playing soccer and with superhero action figures
Jose and his younger brother Kevin are the sons of single mother Cristina. They have been attending CDL since the winter of 2020. Jose is a very kind and warm little boy who has settled well into life at CDL and made good friends in his class. His favorite color is blue, he loves to play soccer and with his superhero action figures. Jose's Mom Cristina came to Casa de Luz asking for help in the winter of 2020, after she was unexpectedly widowed. Cristina had never before worked outside of her home and she had recently started working at a restaurant owned by CDL Mom Marilu. Since she had no one to care for her sons while she worked, she came to CDL to ask for help. When we interviewed Cristina, heard her story, and gave her the news that her sons would be accepted into Casa de Luz, she was overwhelmed and cried tears of thankfulness! Already, the love, support and stability that CDL has provided for Cristina and her sons has been absolutely transformational in their lives. We are so thankful that God has given us the opportunity to partner with this family, and we are excited to see all that God is going to do in and through them.
