Some of the most amazing + memorable humans I have met in my life have been children.
Many of these kids who remain deep in my heart have grown up without families, live in institutions, + have past or current memories of abuse or neglect.
We have laughed + cried together. They have disclosed their hearts to me me + I know that loneliness is a daily reality. And yet they are so resilient. They have so much love to give despite what they have gone through.
These children have changed me for the better.
Here are some wonderful organizations that you can partner with to better the lives of children who don’t live with families + really need your help:
Foster Care – Take in a child or children removed from their family because of neglect or abuse.
Bethel China – Helping visually impaired orphans + children in Beijing, China live life to the fullest.
Make Way Partners – Preventing + combating human trafficking and all forms of modern-day oppression by education, proper care + mobilizing the church of Jesus Christ.
International China Concern – To bring love, hope + opportunity to China’s abandoned + disabled.
Bring Me Hope – Summer Camps for orphans in their home country.
