Your gift will make Christmas merry and bright for hurting kids like Leila and Amari.
They had lost everything. And then they began to lose each other.
When Leila and Amari's grandparents died, they felt like they lost everything. Overwhelmed by grief and struggling at home and at school, it seemed like there was no way out.
Their aunt, who had taken custody of the siblings, worried about how they struggled to communicate, and that they were both were headed down the wrong path. She wasn't emotionally or financially able to help, even though she truly did want the best for them. She searched for help on the internet and found Mercy Home.
Today, Leila and Amari have found a sense of peace, thanks to the stability of our Home and the therapeutic resources they need to heal. They've started participating in family therapy together to mend their broken relationship. Over time, they've even seen some of their closeness return.
But this brother and sister still have a long road of healing ahead of them. As do many of our boys and girls.
Your generosity will create a warm and wonderful Christmas for hurting kids like Leila and Amari. Thanks to the generosity of our friends at the Foglia Family Foundation, all gifts will be MATCHED during the month of December up to $100,000. You can give our kids the Christmas they deserve.
Many of our kids have never experienced the warmth and joy of a true Christmas - decorating the tree, baking cookies, singing carols, anticipating a special present on Christmas morning.
Please, share a gift today to help brighten the season for our kids and show them they are truly loved. Thank you.
