Ensley woman celebrates rebuilding of home

ENSLEY, AL (WBRC) - It was only a year ago that her home was destroyed by a car that lost control and ran off the interstate, now Ms. Rebecca Shepherd is celebrating a new beginning.

On Sunday, she invited volunteers from Mission Birmingham to dedicate her home on Avenue I in Ensley. She calls their abundance of help in rebuilding her house a miracle that made her new home a reality in just a year.

"I told them "man, I need some help." So they began to help me and so we take no collective credit, but it's a credit to the community in what we do so well, coming together," says Shepherd.

The re-building effort was quite speedy; it did not start until August of this year.
