The Emmanuel Children's Residence began to exist in 1967 as an initiative approved by a group of evangelical Christian women from Catalonia and Spain, and which became a reality in January 1969. Since then and up to the present, many people have worked in this service of welcoming the that many children have benefited.
The main reason of the Family Home is to favor the integral development of the children we serve, indirectly helping their families to re-establish adverse situations in order that each child can return to their home.
“Groundhog Day” is a science fiction film in which Phil, the main character, gets “trapped in a time loop”. Every morning he wakes up on the same date – the calendar never moves forward. Every day is the same. Time and again he encounters the same people and events. But Phil uses this nightmarish situation to gradually improve his behaviour and his relationships during this never-ending day. This leads him to achieve freedom, not only from the repetitiveness, but also from his own serious defects.
Leaving fantasy to one side, in real life we don’t have so many chances to mitigate and correct our own and other people’s errors. Here in our Home, the “Resi”, each day, each month, each year, it seems as if we go through the same set of circumstances, with the kids, their ages, their challenges, their issues, their solutions. But in reality, every opportunity is unique. Every day counts when it comes to loving, helping, and instructing. We need to make the most of each moment to provide training – maybe tomorrow we won’t get the chance to do the good we can do today. Let’s use the present all we can.
