For years I always wanted to see what it was like as it looked inviting and hopefully these children were being treated well.
This past week, my family, along with other homeschoolers, got to tour the administration building as well as the campus, etc.
It really opened my girls' eyes to the seriousness of this and how blessed they are to have loving parents. Right now the Methodist Children's Home in Redford, MI, caters to boys. The majority have been pulled from abused and neglected homes. So heartbreaking. Very few are orphans.
The average stay in the children's home is 6-8 months. From Foster Care to Adoption. They have a variety of programs included volunteer opportunities for families. To learn more about the Methodist Children's Home including its rich history, visit. http://www.mchsmi.org/who_we_are/.
Here are some photos from our field trip.
