Many children today don’t have the opportunity to grow up in a safe, loving, nurturing household. Not surprisingly, many of these children never learn the social skills they need, or the opportunity they deserve, to grow into a well-adjusted young adult. Opening your home – and your family – to one of these precious children will change the world forever.
