Enterprise Community Builds a House for a Family With Need

A mother's love for her special needs child has touched the lives of countless volunteers.

A groundbreaking will take place Thursday in Enterprise for a very special home. The community banded together to build a house for the Mills family.

Voncetta Mills carries her eight-year-old son Little Wayne to his wheelchair. It's a task that she'll perform countless times each day. Little Wayne has CMV, a disease that took away the majority of his brain cells before he was born.

Voncetta, along with husband, Wayne, and two children are dedicated to little Wayne's needs.

"We love him. He’s an angel to us. I could not ask for any better. I would leave him the way he is. God made him perfect," said Voncetta.

Voncetta has spent time as a volunteer with Magic Moment’s Foundation for disabled children. The community has returned the favor. On Friday, an unnamed area contractor will begin construction on their new larger home, and free of charge.

"I’m excited about it. The house will be built around him and his needs. Easier for her when I’m a way," said Wayne.

As far as the generosity of folks from Enterprise and the surrounding areas, one volunteer says it’s been simply overwhelming.

"Enterprise and the surrounding areas, Elba has been great, we've had numerous calls of offering help. Caring, love and compassion. It has been overwhelming," said Sandy Howard.

Mills says Little Wayne has given her a greater appreciation of God's love, and she says her son is a true blessing.

Children's Hospital in Birmingham has thanked Mrs. Mills and her 16-year-old daughter for helping raise money for a prenatal incubator now at that facility.
