Bikes, skateboards, chalk and scooters are out on just about every sunny day. House parents become kids again as they join in various games.
Our youth come to live with us most often because of distressing situations, where wounds of anxiety and despair can cripple. As we work to meet the needs of every child before us I am so thankful for this big green lawn. Our lawn is, in and of itself, a healer of sorts. It’s a happy, mostly open place where the sun can shine brightly and everyone can run, jump and play: A place where confidence is built, where play is safe, where laughter heals and where just being a kid is cool!
