The other day, one of the babies born in our home saw a photo of the house and she said, that’s my mommy’s house.
The significance of the statement is profound for the following reasons.
Two years ago her mother was pregnant and homeless.
Two years ago, she didn’t have a home to be born into.
Two years ago, she was born into a community of dedicated women committed to loving her, reading to her, taking her to doctor’s appointments and affirming her mom.
In the past two years, her mother was given the tools and support needed to give birth to a healthy baby girl to help her break cycles of homelessness and crisis.
When women are given the support they need, they make decisions that affirm their heritage, existence and they break negative cycles and work to leave a new hope-filled legacy for future generations.
