I am writing you this letter to thank you for helping me in a
time of my life that I needed it the most.
I had come to the Children’s Receiving Home with my
brother and sister. You gave us a place to feel safe at, and
feel like we could talk about everything that was going on.
The people that worked in the room that I was in were amazing.
They made me feel like it wasn’t all my fault, and that there was
light at the end of the tunnel.
When I first arrived there I was really scared for myself and my
siblings, but it was such a warm and inviting place that the fear
I was 16 when I went there and I am now 30 years old with 3
beautiful little girls, and a wonderful home, and I feel like the
support and wisdom that I received from the Children’s Receiving
Home helped me become who I am today.
I made a lot of promises to myself while I was in there and
decided that I was important and could make something of myself.
I am in my 3rd year of collage and am loving it. My brother and
sister are also doing well. My brother just finished 8 years in
the navy and my sister is on her second year of school.
All three of us are truly grateful that we had a place to feel
safe at in a time when we really needed it. Thank you so much!!!
