Letter From the Family: 

Hello, ny name is Aracely and I am a proud mom to my four beautiful children. My oldest is sixteen and is currently in high school, His name is Richardo. My second boy is thirteen, then follows my daughter who is eleven, and my youngest who is five. We were living on a piece of land that a family was lending to us when my my daughter youngest daughter had an accident. As a result of the accident she has brain damage. She was in a coma when the owners of the property told us that we needed leave and they gave us no opportunities to look for another place to call home. I give thanks to God that he blessed us with more time with my little girl.

I asked the owner for more time but she said no, that they were going to build onto their own home. We didn't know what to do we were so desperate. We started to think about invading an empty house to start living there. We decided to look for our own land instead. My husband is a security guard and I work in the markets. All of my kids are in school and we thank God for that. During these times we found ourselves in complete desperation, we now have our own land but we don't have any money or resources to build ourselves a home.  Thank you for this opportunity that you've given us. We pray that God blesses you.
