Making a “BIG” Difference in the Dominican Republic Part 2

This story is a follow up to our original story.

In that story, we introduced you to Courtney, a BBBS mentor who traveled to the Dominican Republic as part of a group called Live Different, to help build a house for a family. We recently received an update from one of the leaders from Live Different, letting us know that the family has welcomed a new member.

“On December 26th, the family received their late Christmas gift! Ceila Yorleny was born by Caesarian section and weighed 7 pounds. Ceila was born happy and healthy and both Daniella and Ceila are doing great!

Daniella and Ambiorix are such proud parents and told me that the best part of living in their new home has been being able to bring a new baby into a safe dry home and complete the family. Adrian tells me he is now excited to have a little sister, although Ambiorix said he was quite jealous at first.

Even though Ceila wakes up often in the middle of the night and Daniella doesn’t get a lot of sleep she somehow manages to keep her house absolutely spotless! I told Daniela to expect frequent visits from me as I am so excited to watch Ceila grow into the beautiful woman that she will become. ”
