From Homelessness

In the novel The Gods of Gotham, police officer Timothy Wilde inadvertently takes in an orphan. From that moment, all that matters to her is that she now has a home. Repeatedly, when he starts trying to talk to her about where she came from or who she knows, all she wants him to say is that she can stay and she now has a home (Lyndsey Faye, The Gods of Gotham [New York: Penguin, 2012]). Going from homeless to having a home, unwanted to cherished and loved, outcast to belonging—that’s what it means to become a child of God.
