15 JULY 2013 | DOUBLY BLESSED

Last Wednesday, we had the privilege of dedicating our most recent new home in Augusta Crossings that was built in partnership with the Ali/Karim family and our sponsors from Red Hat, WalMart, and Grifols.

When it came time in the program to make remarks, the father/husband of the family, El Waleid shared a touching story with us.  On the morning of November 3, 2012 while he and his wife Salsabila were at WakeMed for the delivery of their second child, he received a call on his cell phone.  He looked at the phone and saw that the call was from Habitat and even in the midst of the pending birth, he answered the call from a staff member on our family services team.  El Waleid learned that his application for homeownership had been approved by our Family Selection committee and minutes later their baby daughter, Aseel, entered the world!

How’s that for a blessed morning?!  It’s so much fun to be a part of such joy!
