MOORE, Okla. - Things seem to be looking up for an Oklahoma family who lost everything.

The Hodson family is still recovering from the devastating tornado that affected the entire Moore community in May 2013.

"It is sad in that moment, just seeing all of your toys, all of your clothing just spread everywhere," Yannet Hodson remembered.

For nearly two years, the Hodson family had no place to call home.

But on Sunday, all of that changed with Habitat For Humanity dedicated a new home to them.

They say it is a home built on faith.

"It's such a wonderful blessing and I cant wait to start in this new house." Hodson said.

With a helping hand and a few kind words, Hodson and her son have a place to call their own.

After the home dedication on Sunday, Hodson says they are finally able to move on.

"It's a new beginning, start fresh and hope for the future." Hodson said.

Sunday was the first of ten home dedications by Habitat For Humanity this year.

They say they plan to do more if they can come up with the funds.
