A Story of Restoration

Piper is 34 years old and is a graduate of our program. She shared a bit about her story with us recently and her experience at Home of the Swallow. Piper’s parents separated when she was young, around the time that she was born. She was living with her mother who then passed away and she was sent to live in an orphanage. Piper never had the opportunity to experience life in a family, and was never able to know the loving touch or hug of her mother or father. When she was at the orphanage she felt heavyhearted and struggled a lot. It wasn’t just that she didn’t have parents, she also didn’t have anything secure in her life - not even her health. She felt that everything was stolen from her. Before Piper came to live at Home of the Swallow, she didn’t have anywhere to live and didn’t have the will to continue living. She was pregnant and couldn’t depend on the father of her child because he was in jail. 

Coming to Home of the Swallow was a turning point for her. She said, “My time at Home of the Swallow has had a profound impact on my life.” If not for HOS, she wouldn’t be able to see her son, and she doesn’t even know if she would be alive today. Piper was given the opportunity to experience the world in a new way; she found a new community, and new love through Home of the Swallow. Piper is so grateful to have had been in the environment at HOS to grow and heal from her past. She was able to experience what a true family is like through her time at Home of the Swallow. She now has a family/community she did not have before. She now has hope, new life, and a new way to experience this world. 

“I am so thankful for this house which demonstrates the real love and caring to one another. And more than that, I am certain that Home of the Swallow will have a strong impact on others in the future.” Through her time at Home of the Swallow she has developed a passion to help others that have come from similar circumstances. She sees how he offers freedom, freedom to love with deep warmth to women like her and orphans, even though many in this world will reject them. Piper wants to thank everyone at Home of the Swallow, who loved her and showed her kindness.

We are so blessed to have been a small part of Piper's story and are able to continue to walk alongside her on her journey!
