In November, we give thanks for the beauty of life, the comfort of family and friends, and the strength of the human spirit to persevere when times are unkind.
It's humbling to see children who have already been through so many challenges find the quiet courage and grace to care for others who are in harm's way. This Thanksgiving, Maryvale's boys and girls have been writing loving cards of hope and gratitude to comfort U.S. troops far from home. Whether it's the simple message "I would like to give my heart to you for serving our country. Bless you" to drawings of hearts, flags, and reminders of holiday cheer, we are so proud of our kids' open hearts. And of your thoughtfulness too.
Because of our supporters, we have been able to provide foster children with a place of sanctuary with opportunities to heal.
As emotions intensify for Maryvale's children during the holidays, know that thanks to the kindness and generosity of so many, our kids are surrounded by love during this season of giving.
Please take a moment to read their notes and get a glimpse into the spirit of our children.
