She needs a house to put in a home.

"A military chaplain told me the following story :

"A soldier's little girl, whose father was being moved to a distant post, was sitting at the airport among her family's meager belongings.
The girl was sleepy. She leaned against the packs and duffel bags.
A lady came by, stopped, and patted her on the head. "'Poor child,' she said. 'You haven't got a home.'
The child looked up in surprise. 'But we do have a home,' she said. 'We just don't have a house to put in.'"
