“Our parents create an environment in which we can grow. We call it the home. The home is the most powerful place on earth. It is the cradle of the soul. Our minds and personalities, our loves and our hates, our fears and our dreams are all molded in the home. The home is the workshop of God, where the process of character-making is silently, lovingly, imperceptibly carried on. We search throughout our lives for love and identity, and if we are fortunate, we may find it.” – An Arrow Pointing to Heaven, James Bryan Smith
Our Home of Hope families in Haiti are giving extremely vulnerable children a loving family again where death, exploitation and desperate poverty had taken away that nurturing environment. Today, it’s an incredible privilege to watch these families grow and interact in that powerful place.
