Since Hildy was a little girl, God has perpetually thrown curveballs in her life, redirecting her to areas and activities that she would never have expected. First, He prepared her to understand how many people live from one day to the next, just praying for the next day’s meal. Second, He created her with a visionary and entrepreneurial spirit, which propelled Hildy to create and develop new ideas. Yet now, as the Regional Director of Safe Families Hamilton/Halton, those two characteristics have been joined by a third: expectant hope.
As an educator, parent, foster parent, and friend to men and women from hard places, Hildy lives with trust and hope that when a referral is made, she will be faithful to God by sharing his love with the family. “I can only expect that as He prepared Moses and Peter to do the work they did not feel qualified to do, that he will prepare our chapter to respond in faith to the families we welcome into our lives. God will throw curveballs, but we will lean into his heart and walk by faith, trusting he will provide daily bread.”
Natalie is a wife and mom to three children and also fosters through the Hamilton Children’s Aid Society. When she first heard of Safe Families she felt a strong pull to be involved, knowing personally of birth parents that maybe would not have been separated from their children had they had some support. She is eager and excited for the launch of the Hamilton Halton chapter and looks forward to seeing what God is going to do in this region through Safe Families and the Circle of Support volunteers.
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer” Romans 12:12.
