From Our Home to the World ❤️

As a house parent, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing countless moments of growth, joy, and discovery within the walls of our home. Throughout the year, I watched these young individuals grow, facing triumphs and struggles with resilience and determination. Late-night study sessions, heart-to-heart conversations, and even the occasional disciplinary talk — each of these instances was an opportunity for growth and learning.

Our house became more than just a place to sleep and study; it became a home. We shared meals, celebrated birthdays, and supported each other through thick and thin. The bonds formed within these walls are strong and lasting. We laughed together, cried together, and ultimately, grew together.

Seeing my students walk across the stage to receive their diplomas is a testament to their hard work and perseverance.While I am excited for the adventures that await them, I will miss their presence, their laughter, and even the occasional chaos that comes with living in a house full of young energy. Our home will feel different, quieter, but I know it’s all part of the beautiful cycle of growth and change.

To Gia, Martina, Melissa, Stacy, Zia and Zoya: thank you for letting me be a part of your journey. You have taught me as much as I have hoped to teach you. I have no doubt that you will continue to inspire and achieve great things. Remember, you always have a home here, a place where you are loved and supported unconditionally.

As you step out into the world, carry with you the lessons learned, the friendships forged, and the confidence that you are capable of achieving your dreams. The future is bright, and it is yours for the taking. Congratulations, graduates—go out and shine!

With love and pride,

Aida & Yewande
