So many of the children we care for have experienced heartbreaking circumstances such as malnourishment, homelessness and abuse in their short lives. The life-giving hope we provide is helping to rewrite the stories of many precious children.
One of those children is six-year-old Lilliana*. Sweet Lilliana had never experienced joy, only pain and loneliness. She came to us from a home where she was emotionally and physically neglected by her mother. Left home by herself for hours at a time, Lilliana felt alone in the world.
Her story changed direction when she came to live with one of our loving foster families. One Wednesday night at church Awana class she learned about and accepted Jesus. Lilliana was given the chance to meet Jesus, and her story has been Rewritten!
In 2014, Florida Baptist Children’s Homes impacted the lives of more than 106,000 precious children like Lilliana in Florida and others throughout several developing nations. We were able to help with the physical needs while sharing the deep and life-changing love of Christ with hurting children.
In 2015, we are tirelessly and boldly continuing our pursuit to help one more child. There are more stories to be shared. There are more lives to be changed. Please help rewrite the story of one more child today!
Together for Children,
