One Nampa family had something to smile about Friday morning, this was all thanks to Habitat for Humanity and Norsco. 
The organization broke ground on Aurora Cordoso and her families brand new home. The single mother will now get the opportunity to give her children a stable place to grow up. Before this the family was living in her friends kitchen. Cordoso was diagnosed with thyroid cancer three years after moving to Idaho and is immobile.
Her friend said that she has worked hard to overcome her disabilities and deserves this new beginning.

"She couldn't believe it," said Teresa Hernandaz "She was crying and she called me and said is this a joke and I said no that it is not a joke."
the house will be customize to accommodate her special needs." 

Cordoso was chosen out of 25 qualified applicants. Typically the organization gives a house to one deserving family a year but a spokesman for the group says they hope to increase that number by five in 2018.
