My Intentions

If you want to find out more about why I advocate for SCH, you can read this post, written in 2014. For the broader strokes concerning why I think advocating for SCH is so, so worth it, you can read this post.

To read about *Esther, *Heidi, *Naomi, *Paula, and *Rebekah, who live at Joy Home, or *Promise, who lives at Faith Home,  choose their name. There may not be as many updates regarding these children or young adults, as their foster homes currently do not have foster parents whose blogs I can follow. Some of these posts may be out-of-date.

Why Get Involved?

Please consider giving to SCH any way you can! They really are a fantastic organization that is focused on getting kids back together with biological families, getting kids adopted, ensuring kids and young adults have reliable homes if they cannot be reunited or adopted, and furthering the general welfare of children and young adults who have been abandoned due to their special needs or disabilities. The perception of people with disabilities in the developing world is not the same as it is in most ‘developed’ nations.

There are many reasons a child could be orphaned or abandoned. This is a reality. We should be working towards restoring as many children as possible to their families, and if not possible, then providing them with a safe, healthy, enriched environment in which they can thrive, grow, play, and learn. Where they can be educated, receive surgeries and therapies for any disabilities they may have, be loved by families, no matter how those families came to be united, and be valued for who they are as people. For others to look past their disabilities or special needs, and see that shining person inside. That fighting spirit. That pluck to keep going, even when it’s hard.

The road is long, but you can help. Get involved with the SCH community however you can. Whatever involvement looks like to you, pursue it.
