Single Mother, 1 Child
Renata is the only daughter of single mother, Laura. Renata is a quiet, but extremely intelligent little girl. In Kindergarten she was already reading full sentences and paragraphs and though she is reserved, she is full of joy as she plays with her friends at CDL. Laura and her husband separated during her pregnancy. Laura had been studying Administration at the university in Tijuana when she found out she was pregnant, and had to stop her studies so that she would be able to financially provide for her child. Before coming to CDL, Laura was in a very desperate situation and feeling very hopeless about her future. She felt like she would not be able to fulfill the dreams and goals that she had set for herself and for her future. Since becoming part of Casa de Luz, Laura has a job working at the local town office during the day, and with her earnings she was able to return to school and in 2017 she graduated with her Business Administration Degree! Laura is an incredibly hardworking and dedicated Mother, and we have been so impressed and encouraged to see how she has battled to fulfill her dreams of studying at the university and giving her daughter a better future than what she grew up with! We continue to pray for this family, that God would bless and strengthen Laura and really touch her heart so that her family can realize the dreams and plans that God has for them.
