Happy Mother’s Day weekend to ALL moms. You don’t have to give birth to be a mom. #thegivingtree #ThankYou to everyone who reaches out and touches a child’s heart and soul. In this world, you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. #imaginefoundationforkids #imagineaworldsafeforkids
Imagine being in your own home, with your own family, and feeling scared, angry, hurt, beat down, and hopeless every single day, every waking moment, even afraid of going to sleep because of what might happen. Imagine making a routine mistake like spilling milk, breaking a toy, or losing track of time and being slapped, beaten and screamed at while told you are worthless and unwanted. Imagine hiding from your own parents, family members, neighbors, and siblings for fear of what they will do to you. Imagine no safe place to call home…
Now…. Stop…Take a deep breath…
Imagine you were taken to a place where people smiled at you and were genuinely happy to be around you. Imagine a beautiful room that they say is yours. Imagine making a mistake and being told it is okay, that you are loved, and that they will help you. Imagine waking up laughing, playing, and enjoying life as a kid.
Imagine… a place of hope for children who were once hopeless.
