Single Mother, 2 Children
Coloring and playing with dolls!
Camila is the youngest daughter of single mother Maricela, and has been attending CDL since the fall of 2015. She also has an older sister who is in high school. Camila is a very gentle and friendly little girl, and is very much a 'girly-girl.’ Camila's Mom Maricela came to Casa de Luz asking for help in the fall of 2015, after she separated from her husband. She and her children had been living with a friend of Maricela's temporarily until they could find a room for rent. She came to CDL asking for help, as she had recently started working and had no one to care for her children while she worked and they were staying home alone. When we interviewed Maricela and gave her the news that her daughter would be accepted into Casa de Luz, she was overwhelmed with thankfulness! Over the time that they have been a part of the CDL family, we have seen God start to heal Maricela’s heart. The stability and love that CDL has provided Maricela and Camila has been absolutely life-changing for them. 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.
