Single Mother, 1 Child
Playing with dolls
Monserrat, "Monse," is the only daughter of single mother Maria Elena. She is a very quiet, but friendly and creative little girl who loves to play Barbies at CDL. She can usually be found with her new group of friends, giggling and playing on the CDL park! She has attended CDL since the winter of 2020. Monse's Mom Maria Elena came to Casa de Luz desperately asking for help after separating from her husband. Maria Elena had recently started working in housekeeping at a local hotel, and she had no one to care for her daughter while she worked. Monse had been left home alone to care for herself, and Maria Elena was filled with fear every time that she went to work. When we interviewed Maria Elena, prayed with her, and gave her the news that her daughter would be accepted into the Casa de Luz family, she was filled with thankfulness and relief that finally her daughter would be in a safe and secure place while she worked!
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. Maria Elena wants you to know that her dream is to one day have her own home for her and her daughter, and she is going to work as hard as she can to bring her dream into reality. Please continue to pray for this family!
