People say on the third strike you’re out. But that’s not true with Mosaic on your side. When Aaron Mickle faced what looked like it would be a third strike, Mosaic helped him instead turn it into a literal home run.
Rose and Jude Bernard had three teenage children when they became home providers with Mosaic for three toddlers who later were adopted into the family.
With funds from Mosaic, BCC bought an acre-sized plot as an opportunity for young adults to learn farming job skills for continued sustainability. Stanley plants corn and other vegetables in the plot to learn a viable trade in agriculture—on which the Tanzanian economy heavily relies. The hope for Stanley is to eventually get a job to help his family, as is the custom in Tanzania.
Mary Lou’s life was one of “firsts.” She was one of the first people with a disability to graduate from the local public high school. She was one of the first to move into community services and then into her own apartment later in her life. She was the first person supported by Mosaic to become a member of the board. The list went on.
John, Michael, Marylynn and Theresa Giguere eventually transitioned to a permanent residency at Mosaic’s Banbury home. The sisters happily share a room as do their brothers. Although they miss their mother and brother, they are very happy with Mosaic and love their new home.
