When we heard about Safe Families for Children and its aims, ambitions and the potential impact it could have on the lives of children and families, we felt compelled by God to get involved. Safe Families for Children contains so many elements that we feel God is challenging us to practice; sharing our home, time, love, skills and experiences with others. As we expected, our first hosting was a tiring, yet uplifting time and very humbling.
A nine year old girl came to stay with us all to give her mum some respite. She is a lovely girl, full of energy and always on the go but what a privilege to be able to provide a different family experience for her. It is also great for our children to share these experiences and better understand the breadth and depth of different people’s lives and how they can play a part in helping.
