Single Mother, 2 Children
Playing with toy cars and kicking soccer balls
Kevin and his older brother Jose are the sons of single mother Cristina. They have been attending CDL since the winter of 2020. Kevin is a very shy little boy who was extremely undernourished and small for his age when he arrived at CDL. His favorite color is blue, and he loves to play with the balls and the little toy cars at CDL. Kevin's Mom Cristina came to Casa de Luz asking for help in the winter of 2020, after she was unexpectedly widowed. Cristina had never 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 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.
