Meet Silvia. Single Mom. Foster-Adoptive Mom. "New home" owner.
Silvia Montenegro is ringing in the new year with a beautiful new home that will provide safety, shelter and years of memories for her and her two adoptive sons thanks to RWB Construction. Her old house, a 1930's structure, was always a "home," but after several rounds of repairs, Robert Burrage with RWB decided it was too far gone for more repair.
"We pulled back the stucco and the beams were gone. The house was on the verge of collapse. So we decided the only right and safe thing would be to demolish it and start new. Silvia and the boys are so deserving." explains Robert. He continues, "Several years ago I was looking for something to fulfill me. Something I can get involved with and get my own family involved. So I asked Place of Hope if they had any families that needed help, and that is when I met Silvia."
Silvia fostered nine boys through Place of Hope in her original home and adopted two of them. She recalls when the boys first came into her care, they were so withdrawn and reclusive. One of the boys would not even speak. After loving on them, singing to them and demonstrating safety, stability and speaking life into them for months, the boys became alive with joy and excitement. Fast forward and this family of three is thriving and celebrating each day God gives as a gift. Now, thanks to RWB Construction, they have a new home to celebrate too!
