Eric & Bridgitte’s Story

Eric & Bridgette

Our youngest was born via C-section; we were unprepared for this.  Eric took time off from work to help with my recovery and the boys.  Taking time off cost Eric his job, and we found our family to be homeless.  After exhausting help from family, we went to the Homeless Coalition and they directed us to Family Promise. In Family Promise, we could stay together as a whole family.

Since leaving Family Promise we have signed a least to own agreement on a small piece of property in Splendora with a fixer-upper trailer home.  This will be paid off within the next year, and we will begin building our own home.

After Family Promise we experienced several pregnancy loses, one of which included our son Luke, who was stillborn at 33 weeks.  Family Promise was by our side through it all.

Our other boys are now 7 and 4.  We made the decision to homeschool and our boys are entering 1st grade and kindergarten in September.  Eric recently made the leap into starting his own business.
