Having experienced the devastation of two of our children being born with heart defects and then spending countless days in the hospital 200+ miles away from home, we understand the financial burden placed on families with critically ill children. We want to help families focus on what is most important, their sick child, and not where their next meal is coming from or how they will afford to travel back and forth to their home.
Although we know we cannot take away the pain of seeing your child suffer, we can help meet some of your basic needs. If you need assistance with food, lodging, gas and other travel expenses, let your hospital case manager or nurse know.
I pray you never experience having a sick child, but know that your donation will help reduce unneeded stress on the parents who do.
Serving local families is our passion. The Bible tells us in 2 Cor 1:4 that He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. So many friends, family members, medical staff and even strangers reached out to us and offered support through prayer, visits, cards, calls, and donations when our children were ill. It is a way for us to give back; to pay it forward.
There is no greater gift than hope. It was what kept Robert and I going as we watched our children suffer. These families are hurting, and to be able to love on them, pray with them, and share our hope, means the world.
Our community needs love and needs hope. Our prayer is that the families we serve will one day pay it forward. There are endless possibilities if they do!
We strive to meet with each and every family we serve. If it is not possible, due to location, we will try to send someone in our stead. We do not force our faith on anyone, but we do offer to pray with them.
We begin and end every board meeting with prayer. We want to do the Lord’s work and we want His guidance in every decision we make. We want our endeavors to support our mission and vision.
