For family time, they enjoy watching movies together.  Amalia loves spending time with her kids, listening to Christian music and cooking.  Leandro likes playing basketball, gaming, reading and playing the piano.  Mateo enjoys playing with his toys, watching Wild Kratts, reading books and solving puzzles.  Gabriela currently attends classes at Heartland.

The Orellana family is involved at their church, Restoration Christian Church, with various church activities and outreaches.  

Amalia states, “I am so happy for this opportunity to build a home with Habitat for my kids.  We all feel very blessed.”
