Destination: Florida

My sister is moving to Florida in Early February. She has a great calling on her life, and she is going there as the next step in this calling. She is going to open a Christian Home for teenage mothers here in Louisville. My sister and I were both teenage mothers, and were very blessed to have a very supportive family. It is one of the toughest things a teenage girl can go threw, and it's a blessing all at once. A new life. My sisters goal is for these girls to have a safe place to live while they finish high school. She is going to teach them Christs love for them. It's hard being a teenage mother, wondering how God could still love you if you don't know the extent of his love. She is going to provide a place that these girls can build a foundation, not only spiritually, but also with there child threw parenting classes and other services.

There is nothing like that here, but there are several in Florida, which is why they are moving. She has an internship at a home in Florida were she will learn the details of what her vision is going to take, and she will be working and finishing her college degree all at the same time.

These next two years are going to be tough. I love my sister, and she is always there for me. She will still be a phone call away, but it won't be the same. It would be selfish of me to ask her to stay here when I know what she is trying to accomplish. I can't wait until she opens the doors to the home. We are a very close family, and my parents are having a hard time with this, so keep them in your prayers. And pray for Jacqueline, Adrian, Starr and Adriana. It's not going to be easy. She has a lot of hard work ahead of her, and it will be hard on them being away from family. So pray that her vision stays fresh in her mind, and that God grants her strength to finish what she has begun.

It might be selfish for you but for me, well...

I'm not going to accept it and she isn't moving.
