Sweet Jose rode in the front seat next to me on the ride from the old house to the new house. It is my honor to load up all the kids in my truck and help them shout “Adios” to their old place as we drive off and “Hola” to their new one as we pull up. Bridgit rode on the lap of a lady from the church in another vehicle. So the other 16 came with me. As we rode along Jose and I had a little chat.
“You know what Tia Angie?”
“What’s that, Jose?”
“I thought I was going to be left at the house. I am so glad that I got to come to the new house!”
He flashed his toothless smile up at me.
“Of course you come with us, Jose. We would never leave you behind.”
The three older girls took to reminiscing about this location above the church. This was the first home we had for the House of Dreams. They remembered. It seems that the familiarity has allowed for some great adjusting.
It helps, as well, that they have much more space than before. There are more rooms and larger ones at that. They even get to store their toys in their bedrooms. The outside covered soccer field plus ample yard are perfect for all 17 of them to run free.
If you have joined us in prayer over this moving project you can join us in being grateful to the Lord for:
- Favor from an unlikely landlord
- Happy, healthy and quickly well adjusted kids
- Over fifty people willingly helping with the packing, hauling, sorting, and traipsing through the mud on two of the rainiest days of the season
- People who played with and cared for the Dreamers making this move fun and pleasant
- God’s provision
