The Waiting List: If You Could Change A Life Would You?

Then she said, "Wait, my daughter, until you know how the matter turns out, for the man will not rest until he has settled it today."   Ruth 3:18

Have you ever sat waiting for something that you knew would change your life? Maybe it was the new job, the new car, the new home. Whatever it was, you could visualize your life in a new place of bliss. Then the moment finally arrives. The warmth of your family settled into their new home. The feel of the breeze flowing through your hair as you drive by in your new car. The feeling of security as you can count on a paycheck to pay those bills piling up. Relief, satisfaction, stability are some of the words that can be used to describe the moment when the waiting comes to an end. 

Each day at Acres of Hope inquiring phone calls are received at the front desk. Women searching for refuge - and hope. They search for a place their children can call home. These women have heard the stories of transformation. They have seen the effects of renewal in the lives of current and former families that have gone and are going through the program at Acres of Hope. They have heard about mothers reunifying with children. They have heard about the women who have finished their education. They have heard about the life skills and employment skills that are changing lives at Acres of Hope. These women who call Acres of Hope are waiting for the moment when they can come into the program and have the stability and support that they need to care for their children. They wait for the day when they will be added to the list of stories of transformation. They long for the day when they will be counted among those who have been renewed at Acres of Hope. Each day that passes, the waiting list grows. Mothers and their children who are searching for a place they can call their own. A place where they can find the renewal and transformation that will change their lives forever.
