Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!!! As the
memory of Christmas fades and a new year begins, I find myself overwhelmed with
gratitude for you and The Children’s Home. We are so thankful for the
many ways our “Children’s Home family” loved our kids this past year. The
last several months have been especially humbling, as I have seen our kids
loved on and cared for in so many tangible ways. I got to experience kids
giving family teachers surprise gifts, as well as gifts to one another.
Watching kids that came to us angry and hurt, choosing to be givers and
celebrating the opportunity to bless others is overwhelming. Walking with
kids from surviving to thriving is a journey that is not always easy. But
today I am as proud as I can be of our staff and the kids that live here with
us. Seeing the giving spirit of the kids and their love for others
reveals the passion and the dedication of our staff, our volunteers, and you,
As the new year begins, we will
continue living out our mission to restore the identity of children so they can
realize their great value and be a blessing to others.
Thank you for thinking of us as
you are making plans: to lose weight, clean out that storage shed, write that
novel, or whatever New Year’s resolution you are focusing on, we appreciate you
including us in your 2017 thoughts.
Thanks for loving kids,
