Suddenly, Michael Faling from Spokane lost everything, a job and an apartment. He had only Cory, his 12-year-old son, in hand. They had no relatives or acquaintances in this city. They didn’t even have space in the local shelter for homeless people.
During a couple of months, father and son have been living in a forest. Michael was such a great father that even in these spartan conditions he managed to send his son to school, though sometimes they had nothing to eat.
They were barely fighting to survive. In the end, they were placed in different homeless shelters. Cory started living without his father, on his own. Michael realised that something must change in the nearest time but he didn’t know what. After all bygone difficulties, a boy thought that no one liked them.
And then, Michael found out about one organisation that helps homeless people to find apartments. Even though a lot of people wanted to be in this “magical” list, the man didn’t surrender and kept giving hopes. And then a small miracle happened — her name is Mel Wood. She owns a small business.
6 years ago she lost her husband — he died from heart disease, and since then Wood lives alone with her children and a dog. When she learnt about Michael and Cory’s terrible life problems, she realised she had to help. This woman has a big kind heart. There were 2 empty rooms in her house, so she invited the homeless to live there. Many people might consider her action as a madness but Mel says that since her husband’s death, she doesn’t fear anything.

Later on, commenting on her action, she said a wonderful phrase, “When you have more than you need, don’t buy a fence but a big table.”
Now, Kory can go to school, no longer live in the forest and believe that there are people with hearts of gold!
That’s how a woman saved two lives at the same time!
