Springfield Family Receives Habitat for Humanity Home


Springfield - Wendie Fischer and Adrian Haley have been together for 17 years.

Haley says it hasn't always been easy.

"From sleeping in abandoned cars to sleeping in abandoned cars and abandoned apartments."

Now Haley, and his family, that has helped others are the ones getting a helping hand from the Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County, and what goes better with a helping hand, than an engagement ring?

"I'm just ready to make this home whole.  And I wanted to know would you marry me," Haley proposed to Fischer before an excited crowd Wednesday morning.

With faithful love, a family full of support, and soon, a place to call home.
"This just seals it together.  So I mean, I feel like we're going to be blessed even more," Fischer told WAND News.

"This is for the future.  You know, great-grand kids, grand kids," added Haley.

Adrian and Wendie are excited to see what life has in store for their family.

The project's leaders said the house should be completed by November.  That will give Haley and his family the chance to start having gatherings just in time for the holidays.
