Five for Five: Loving the Children of AHOPE

You all know how near and dear to my heart AHOPE is. By the grace of God, AHOPE saved my daughters’ lives. I’m not saying that to be dramatic; it is simply true.

AHOPE is From HIV to Home’s featured partner for our World AIDS Day 5 for 5 campaign.

Welcome to Day 2 of our Five for Five campaign for World AIDS Day – a chance to give $5 a day for 5 days – each day funding a different project serving orphans living with HIV!

Today’s project is “AHOPE for Children” in Ethiopia. AHOPE Ethiopia provides two children’s homes exclusively for the care of children infected with HIV, with a capacity of about 100 children total. The Child Development Center is a community outreach program that provides services essential to enable a destitute extended family to keep its orphaned children at home. The first Child Development Center was opened in September of 2007 in an impoverished neighborhood of Addis Ababa. It has the capacity to assist 100 children and their guardians and is designed as a model that is suitable for replication in other needy areas as funding allows.
All “5 for 5” donations received today (December 2) will be designated toward AHOPE’s Child Development Center – enabling extended families and communities to keep their orphaned children at home.

Our Tuesday’s Answers will be up in just a bit….I’m working on it while packing to leave for Seattle. This is probably not the best example of multi-tasking.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
