Hi there, I’ve kind of had a lot going on, I thought it might be a good idea to give some updates on my life and how I’m feeling about all the changes happening around me. I have lived at SafeHope Home for a little over a year and it has really felt like home. This is a feeling I haven’t experienced in a really long time. At the beginning of this month, I found out that I was approved for an apartment. I’ve had a lot of mixed emotions about moving. Although I’m extremely excited for this next chapter of my life I can’t help but feel a little sad about saying goodbye to the family I have created here.
The connections that I’ve made with the other participants here are something that I will always be grateful for. I don’t think I would have been able to make connections this strong anywhere else. Everyone at SafeHope home will always hold a special place in my heart. Another change that has happened in my life recently is that I’ve begun a faith journey, coming into SafeHope Home if you would have told me that I would leave here with a relationship with God, I would have never believed you, but now I have a level of excitement every morning when I wake up knowing that it’s another day that I can create a closer relationship with him. I feel like there’s still so much for me to learn about my faith and what that looks like my next project is finding a church in my new neighbourhood that I feel fosters my faith best.
It’s crazy to think of how many ways I’ve changed since being here. I’m becoming the person that I’ve always dreamed of but didn’t think was possible; today I’m proud of who I am, and I feel like I actually have a future. SafeHope has provided me with the comfort of knowing that I will be able to get through my tomorrow and I know that if I keep in touch I’ll never really be alone.
Ciao for now
