Home for a cause
Organized by: Victor Vargas
Iam a mother of 3 beautiful children and expecting one in its way. Our goal was to own our own house, we were so close on meeting this goal. life gave us a huge turn. Life got challenge after my second born child. He was born premature and hard of hearing. Our entire life changed, our first son got the most of it. After being the only child for 5 yrs , another comes along and took all the attention, needing our total time and presence. In and out the hospitals, testing after testings, therapist in and out the house with no time to spare to one. Work in between. It was so much we had to make a big decision . one of us had to quit working. Our goal on having a home seem more like a dream and impossible to reach. Having only one parent working , paying bills and needs got us into debt. We lost hope. All we wanted was our child to me able to hear. Our time and energy was given all to him. Things started feeling normal to us. We cope and realize we are no different then any other family. But alot more special. We determine to set goals again and give our children what they deserve. A good space to live. We are a family of 5 becoming a family of 6 in some months. Only one bed room. Our oldest son is now 10 and needs he's own room. He has come home several times talking about his friends having there own room.. He saves posters of his like to when he has his room to put them up. Breaks my heart when I hear him and see him doing that. Because in me I see my son growing and growing every single day and our dream of having a house looks further away from us. My second son, needs he's own personal equipment.. He needs a special alarm clock put in his own bed to start preparing him and be self depended and responsible. Being deaf in a world of hearing its very hard for a non hearing person. Can't have that install because he has to share beds with his brother and his little sister. I understand a house is not needed to be happy but it does bring A smile to our faces and makes life alot easier.
