Like pearls, many children's stories begin in hard places. Just as it takes time for a grain of sand to transform inside an oyster, it can take years of being surrounded by loving relationships for these children to heal. Often, this path is not easy and it can be difficult for foster and adoptive families to see the beauty in their hard work. We offer hope and practical help to these families through trauma-informed educational opportunities and support groups. We also believe children from hard places need to be surrounded by a community who is trauma-informed. We are committed to bringing Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) to teachers, case workers, church volunteers and anyone who works with children. Our desire is that through healthy connections, vulnerable children will feel safe, know they have a voice and ultimately, discover that they are precious.
