The Children

2007

Twelve orphan girls

The Night We Brought Them Home
The Night We Brought Them Home

Four of the twelve with profound disabilities 

All with social and emotional deprivation

All from a government institution for orphans and abandoned children

The original plan did not include children with disabilities, a true oversight.  But when we went to pick up the others, the government asked us to consider these additional four.  We said yes immediately!

 This decision to also accept these four changed the nature of the home in a very exciting way. The two groups needed each other.  They needed to love and be loved, to accept and be accepted unconditionally, in a way children are more able to give than adults.   

They Needed Each Other

Serendipity created a template for emotional stability, a home of mixed abilities that mirrors our Vision of a society accepting of mixed abilities. 

They Are Sisters
