Isaac the Overcomer!

Isaac has faced many obstacles in his life, and so far - he has overcome!

 

   

 

 

Isaac was born in Dallas, Texas in 1999. He is the youngest of four children. He moved to San Antonio at the age of two when his parents divorced. His mom struggled for many years to make ends meet with four children. He grew up quickly and was familiar with "street life" from an early age. When he was 11 years old he and his family moved to the Austin area. They moved in with his aunt and uncle. 

   

 

 

They all lived together for a few years and things were getting better for them. They had started attending church on a regular basis and the whole family became involved. But when Isaac was 13 years old his mom decided to move back to the Dallas area. This was not something that Isaac or his siblings wanted to do. So, his mom decided to go without them. This was very hard for all of them, but especially for Isaac because he was the youngest. One by one his three older siblings decided to go to the Dallas area also. Eventually it was just Isaac living with his aunt, uncle and cousins. He missed his family terribly, but he decided that he wanted to continue going to church and to live a better life. It took him a while to get over missing them and even today it still saddens him to some degree. But he knows that he made the right decision. He has a close relationship with God and a church family as well as his aunt and uncle who have supported him all along the way.
