10 years later: a true family, a true home

Aude, Constance and Philipine

By Aude H., first Heart’s Home Member to arrive in the States, upon vis­iting New York with her hus­band and kids.

For months, we had nur­tured the dream to travel to New York to cel­e­brate the 10th anniver­sary of Heart’s Home USA. When we boarded the New York -bound plane in Geneva on 18th October with our 2 elder daugh­ters, our excite­ment was pal­pable.

What a momen­tous week it was! Every visit and encounter was an oppor­tu­nity to wit­ness how much Heart’s Home has grown, and give thanks to the Lord for the mir­a­cles he has done for and through Heart’s Home over the last 10 years.

We mar­veled at the work of the Heart’s Home in Brooklyn, at the beauty of the ICCC in its fall foliage, at the encoun­ters with mem­bers of the Fraternity of St Maximilian Kolbe and with former and future American vol­un­teers.

It was a gift to re-dis­cover a city and a country we love through the eyes of our chil­dren, and share with them the trea­sure of the friend­ships we have kept throughout the years.

Above all, this was a time to give thanks for having found in Heart’s Home a true family, a true “Home” where we expe­ri­ence the sheer love & mercy of the Lord!
