This story of our fresh start began over 7 years ago. Today, life is great. My children and I now have stability and peace of mind. We are happy in our own place. We are able to pay all of our bills. My kids are busy being kids. I can afford to put them extracurricular activities. Grant, my youngest, plays soccer; Gavin, the oldest, plays football; and Kylie, my daughter and middle child, is learning to play the guitar. They all play basketball. They have no worries and we couldn’t be happier. We have a can-do attitude. We have learned that when life knocks you down, to get back up and work even harder to get what you want. We weathered the storm and are once again enjoying this life thanks to the generosity and selfless love we received at Hillcrest Hope.
