Eliana and her younger brother Axel are the children of single Mother Melissa. Eliana is a very friendly and intelligent little girl who loves to read. She has loved to spend her days at CDL, and we have really seen her “come out of her shell” since starting at CDL. They became a part of the Casa de Luz family in August 2017 after Melissa separated from her husband after many years of struggle and difficulty. Before coming to Casa de Luz, Melissa was struggling to find someone who could care for her children, so when we gave her the news that her children could start coming to Casa de Luz she cried tears of joy and relief. Melissa is a very hard- working Mother who dreams of being an Accountant one day. She works in the office at a local gated community, and since the fall of 2018 is also receiving a scholarship as part of CDL’s Scholarship Program to finish her education. She is currently working and studying at a local university to become an Accountant. We continue to pray for this family, that God would bless Melissa, Axel and Eliana, heal them, and really touch their hearts so that they can realize the dreams and plans that God has for them.
