Thank You Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home
By Luis Alberto Fernandez, former resident
I have been blessed to be part of the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home family. I came to the Home in 2000 when I was just nine years old. From the beginning I was provided with a safe, caring, and structured environment that allowed me to learn, grow, and ultimately become a leader. The diverse personalities and backgrounds of the staff, volunteers, and residents have shaped my life, enriched my character, and exposed me to a variety of cultural/social experiences.
I will be forever grateful to the many staff members who helped me grow up to become the person I am. They are my true heroes. Their sincerity and dedication gave me confidence and helped me realize my potential. Throughout my childhood—and as an adult—I have always felt the genuine kindness and warmth that can only come from people who are called to work with children by God, who makes all things possible.
Thank you. I am truly grateful to the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home for providing me with a safe place to grow and learn, and for being such a positive influence in my life. There are no words that can fully express my gratitude to the Home, but I hope that as I become a successful and productive citizen of El Paso, my happiness will show through the life that I live.
