Listen Closely

Each year, three million American children experience the trauma of abuse, neglect, and displacement – often at the hands of the very people they’ve loved the most.

Even when these children are removed to the safety of foster parents or group homes, the stability can be painfully brief. In a single year, kids often undergo 2-3 different placements. It’s hard to imagine what they feel, as again and again, the attachments they form are ripped apart.

Friends, teachers, church group, scout troops…they all become memories much too soon. No wonder so many kids think the only place they really belong is an endless revolving door – one that abruptly casts them out at age 17 or 18.

These children need more from us. They desperately need a consistent, supportive presence in their lives.
