Emily Wished to go on an Alakan Cruise! Emily had just returned from her wish trip where she explored Alaska, met sled dog puppies, whale watched with her family, and spent her time painting on the ship’s deck and taking digital photos of all the wildlife. Lux Bond & Green jumped right in to provide a welcome home celebration for Emily and her family. They surprised her with her first charm bracelet with charms to remind her of her adventure. They also gave her a cozy new throw blanket (in indigo blue- her favorite color!). Last but not least was a beautiful frame to showcase her favorite photo from her time in Alaska and always remember her wish trip. #JFCHope #helpingkids Make-A-Wish Connecticut

Torrance Council of PTAs Board Member Cindy Shields stopped by recently to drop off a package of items we would've received at their Honorary Service Awards Dinner - originally scheduled for late March. The packaged included the beautiful artwork by student Zoe Y. shown here, which was going to be part of our table's centerpiece at the event, as well as Certificates of Recognition from @reptedlieu, Senator @benallenca, @cityoftorranceca, and the Torrance Unified School District Board of Education. We are so grateful to the Torrance Council of PTAs for honoring us with a Service Award this year, and we look forward to many more years of working together to help the students and families in our community! #AtTheHeartOfHelping #EngagingHeartsAndMinds #OperationTeddyBear #FoodForKidsSouthBay #YouthMentalHealth #PromotingEmpathy #BuildingResilience #KindnessMatters #ChooseCompassion #MakeConnections #FindingBalance #ReconnectingFamilies #ScreenTime #TeensAndScreens #SocialEmotionalWellness #MentalHealthMatters #YouAreNotAlone #HelpingKids #HelpingFamilies #HelpingParents #CommunityPartners #CommunitySupport #CommunityImpact #CommunityInvolvement #CommunityNeeds #TorranceCA #SouthBayLife #MakingADifferenceTogether

You can look at older children simply as diamonds in the rough, Even a diamond that's in the dirt is still a diamond.⁠ They just need help, polishing them up, and once you hold them up to the light they’re still the same diamond, they’re just a little more refined now."⁠ ⁠ Barry Farmer⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #togetherkidswin#fostercare⁠ ⁠ #fostercareawareness #teens #diamonds #makeadifference #helpingkids

BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOKS! . I currently have too little shelf space for the amount of parenting books I have. No, it’s not the other way around. I refuse to believe I have too many books. Perhaps you agree with that sentiment too? . SO excited. Here are the books I’m currently reading for this week’s and the next few week’s interviews on the How to Talk to Kids about Anything podcast!

I met three guys who I called Devon, Clive and Shawn. They were nicely dressed in suits, ties and dress shirts. One night, Shawn came and got me from my house, and we stopped to pick up a friend of his. He told me to go inside with the guy we’d picked up. Shawn promised to join us in a minute. But the man brought me into a back room with a couch in it. I performed oral sex and he handed me cash which Shawn then took away. I started working the motels regularly, going to school as little as possible.

This will be the only post about my business here on my art page. I thought it was something I would share because it directly stems from the issues I deal with everyday. During a very hard time I came up with Summer Camp as a way to deal with my anxiety. It started as a way to create but quickly became a lot more. I want to help and give back. I want to give people a chance. I am extremely proud of what I did by just pushing myself everyday for years now. Slowly inch by inch I am moving it forward. So all that blathering is done. Please go over and add @summercampclothing and if not its alright too thank you for checking my art out.

“What is more gorgeous than a blossoming flower; what is more appealing than an exquisite sunset? The answer is the smile of a child.

Book Recommendations⁣ ⁣ Here are some books I read before becoming a foster mom that have helped.⁣ ⁣ 📚 Give them Grace, by Elyse Fitzpatrick& Jessica Thompson⁣ ⁣ 📖 The Connected Child, by Karen Purvis⁣ ⁣ 📚 Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adopted Parents Knew, by Sherrie Eldridge⁣ ⁣ And since becoming a mom I’ve started reading: ⁣ 📖 Risen Motherhood, by Emily Jensen & Laura Wifler⁣ ⁣ I will FULLY admit that I have yet to read any of these cover to cover 🤣. Life’s been a little busy! But I have read over half of the first 3. In particular The Connected Child book is good because you can find a chapter that relates to a problem you might be gaveling with a child and get some specific help. ⁣ ⁣ Since I feel like I’m through the “just survive” part of getting used to being a mom, I’m trying to be better about our connection to each other and also my growth as a mom. ⁣ ⁣ Foster and adoptive and bio moms chime in with your favorite books below please! I’m a newbie so I KNOW I have missed some gems I’m sure:).

Have you ever spoken to your children about what bullying is?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My daughter comes home with stories of what the kids have said to her at school and I have to explain to her that's bullying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She doesn't understand the behaviours constitute bullying, so we talk about what she can do if it happens again, or she sees it happening to someone else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've included a #childrenchats section in Captain Hairypants and the kite-flying mouse, which gives you some questions to ask your child in a simple way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If we start these conversations early, we can shape our children so they know how to stand up for themselves and nip any bullying behaviour they may be doing to others before it grows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think these are essential conversations to have.

Just before the severity of this pandemic was announced our team was in Nayagarh, Orissa building playscapes for their communities and schools but had to discontinue the work due these trying times. The government has now declared Nayagarh as a green zone which has made it possible for the team to be back on ground to complete the construction work. Hoping the playgrounds help increase physical activity for the children of the community and build their immunity to fight COVID-19. We hope the little ones are keeping safe and staying healthy🌟 . . . .

Last month we collaborated with @imagination_station_toys to create a School Supply & Learning Activity package full of fun educational games and activities for our Littles. The smiles on their faces is priceless. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Round two is in the works with a new partnership with @bookshelf406 in Kalispell. Our Littles will receive a book, a small STEAM activity from @stemfinity, and more. These Little packages are made possible because of a generous grant by the @whitefishcommunityfoundation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Due to COVID-19, we canceled our largest annual fundraiser–The Big Event. Through The BIG Ask, we are hoping to recoup 50% of these lost operating funds. We need your help raising $50,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your gift will help us to continue matching kids facing adversity with caring mentors in Northwest Montana. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join us and donate today!

Some days I find it harder to figure out how to do “all the things” I need to do with as much going on at home. In trying to set myself up for work in and around competing priorities, I overcomplicate things and feel down and as though I am just waiting for it to be over. ⁣ ⁣ Then I turn to see what the children are doing; how they are managing to find the good and stay productive under such different times. ⁣ ⁣ I notice that they are simply using all the tools they already have with and within them. They make it look easy as they create colorful spaces and find ways to focus on the present moment. Rainbow doodles and desks arranged. I try to assume nothing and look for signs as to whether things are feeling easier or harder for them, but I mostly find them inspiring. They remind me to relax and to recognize that we have all that we need right now.

Kate spent much of her childhood in abusive households, jumping between her family, foster parents and adoption. Eventually, she decided to run away, but she was homeless and alone. At just 15 years old, that's when she met someone who seemed to be offering her a way out. It started with Kate selling drugs on 5th Avenue downtown. "He said I didn't make enough and I would have to do other stuff and I didn't want to." "After about a month I didn't want to do it anymore and he wouldn't let me leave," she said.

How Do You Change a Youth for Life? Volunteer with @avenuesforjustice “I grew up in the projects on the Lower East Side and beat the odds to get my Master’s Degree. But I came back to the neighborhood to work with Avenues for Justice because I’ve never seen commitment like I do here. Our centers stay open into the evenings and our staff responds to calls from youth 24/7. We also talk with their teachers, principals, probation officers and judges. This commitment for 40+ years is why 90% of our youth never commit a crime again. Now we’re expanding to equip our youth digitally and with job skills. For many, this is a heavy lift. Would you have one hour every week or every two weeks to help our youth on-line or at our Harlem and Lower East Side Centers? They need homework help and someone to tutor them in their on-line job training. You could be the person who helps them change their lives.” - Johnny [email protected] to apply!

“How to be involved with foster care without becoming a foster parent.”⁣ ⁣ I hope that throughout this month you’ve had a glimpse into the realities and joys of foster parenting and maybe it even sparked in you the idea that you might be called! But I also know many of you might be called to care for these kids in a different way. It takes a seriously awesome village to serve these families and kids. 👏🏼⁣ ⁣ So what can you do? ⁣ VOLUNTEER: sign up to be a CASA-court appointed Special Advocate for kids in foster care. After a training you are assigned a case that you stay with all the way through and you visit with the kids and act as another voice for what’s best for them. This is a need as many kids don’t have a CASA worker because there aren’t enough for every case(my kids don’t have one). This is a great way to be another trusted, stable, and loving adult in some kids lives! ⁣ ⁣ SUPPORT: (see slide I’ve included for more ideas too) ⁣ Find out in your community if there are “foster parents nights out” that need baby sitters. Al it usually takes is a background check for things likely that. ⁣ ⁣ Babysit, bring a meal, pop by and hangout with a foster family. Offer a date night or night off (for us single ones😉) and watch the kids or a few hours. ⁣ ⁣ PRAY: This is what everyone can do. Pray for the children, their biological families, the foster parents, the social workers, the lawyers, the judges. Take a minute to put yourself in the stressful shoes of any of those listed, feel those feelings and pray. ⁣ ⁣ The things people have done that have helped me the most are pray and check in. Just a text, call, note attached to a small gesture like a plate of cookies/flowers/toy for the kids/gift card/mowing my lawn (which might be my favorite ever hahah)— Anything like that shows that we aren’t forgotten about in this strange (often lonely) journey. ❤️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #fosteringlove #fostercareawarenessmonth #may #fostercare #fostermom #fosterparents #fostering #foster #singlefostermom #singlefostermomma #boymom #helpingkids #preschoolers #momofboys #singlemom #momlife #parenting #parent #nationalfostercareawarenessmonth #speakupforfosterkids shirt from @goodsandbetter

This is Timmy ❤️ Susie met him when she was visiting a remote village in Cambodia back in Feb. We’d just opened our first school and Carlton and I were scoping out other villages to build our next school with United World Schools. When chatting to some of the children, I noticed that one of the boys seemed to be squinting, and when we asked him what was wrong, he said that he had trouble seeing clearly. These kids didn’t have access to running water, education, hospital, or even electricity. So of course, going to an opticians was completely out of the question. He didn’t even know there was such a thing. I felt so emotional that getting his eyes tested seemed so far fetched for him and his family. Such simple things we take for granted. I’d been extremely short sighted for as long as I can remember and was lucky enough to have laser eye surgery to correct my vision 13 years ago. How was Timmy to have an education if he couldn’t see the blackboard? Before we left, I promised Timmy’s mum that I was going to help him see properly, and I remember her tearing up with happiness. 3 months later, I just got the news from UWS that Timmy’s village is getting a school!! And that Timmy and his two friends were transferred to Banlung city to get their eyes tested! The most amazing news for Timmy and his community! Life is all about perspective, and today I am so grateful to United World Schools for continuing to look after underprivileged children during these unprecedented times. I’m grateful to our Ambassadors and customers that make our donations to UWS possible - who need us now more than ever. I’m grateful that Carlton and I had the opportunity to help little Timmy and his mates. And I’m grateful for being able to see clearly, that enables me to do all the things that I love. I hope this post brightens your day ❤️ What are you grateful for today? #shortsighted #glasses👓 #schooling #uws #helpingkids #tropic #vegan @tracy.annthompson

Emily Wished to Have a Quinceanera! Thanks to Gold'N Carats, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas/San Antonio Office, and Jewelers for Children, her wish came true! Emily's wish was to have a Quinceanera to celebrate her 15th birthday in May. Surrounded by family and friends, and with help from Make-A-Wish and the local jeweler, Emily's wish came true! She wore a beautiful yellow gown topped with a fabulous tiara donated by Gold N' Carats. Emily looked and felt like a princess and her smile never left her face! Reflecting on the night, and watching her little girl celebrate entering womanhood, Wish Mom Blanca said, “With my heart in my hand, I want to thank you for being part of my daughter’s Wish." #JFCHope #helpingkids

Imagine being six-years-old when a plane ride ends up being a trip into child slavery in Mexico. It was 1977 in Berkeley, California when Jabali Smith was sent off in a cab by his own mother to be trafficked into a sex cult in Mexico. "She ultimately was offering her daughter as a sex slave and me and my brother as servants or slaves to this messianic doomsday sex cult," said Smith. After nearly six years of torture, Smith finally escaped child slavery two weeks before his 12th birthday.

They share the highlights of their journey and reminisce the moments shared together over the course of 5 days with our team members @_hash_i_ @twarit.manglik on the ground. A wonderful team of truly great people who’d come down to India to build the children a playground of their choice using some exemplary skills. It is humanity in its purest form. . . A project done with @salesforcede . We miss having you here @shalenishabla @vbruecker and the rest of this amazing team. . . . #spreadlove #spreadpositivity #spreadhope #lockdownfun #startups #playforkids #playlife #helpingkids #helpinghands #kidslife #brightfuture #growtogether #dreambig #dreambigger #bettertoday #bettertodaythanyesterday #helpingchildren #groweveryday #kidsactivities #npo #foracause #smilemore #brightfutureahead #corporatestrategy #unityforall #betterindia #covidcrisis #adayforplay #bringbackplay

“Share an open letter to your foster children.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As I wrote this it got super long haha. I’ve decided to only share the first paragraph and save the rest at this time..maybe I’ll share it later, maybe I write it down on real paper. 😁⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Dear loves, ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Can I start with how blessed I am to have you in my life? I thought I understood the grace of God pretty well until I became your mom. Through you I have learned so much about grace and forgiveness—-you show it to me daily. You give hugs even when I’ve been short with you. You laugh even when you’re having a hard day. You’ve taught me to relax on what I think is the right way...I probably should keep relaxing. Haha. You find the beauty in the simple things of life: a cloud, grass, a bug, or the moon. You’ve taught me to live in the minute and forgive the last one; no holding grudges. Clean slates all day long. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As happy as I am to be your mom today, it hurts my heart that you’ve already been through so much loss and trauma at your age-heck at any age it would be hard. I pray daily for you that you will feel the love of God through this family. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I love you so much, my boys. More than you’ll ever realize.❤️⁣ ⁣ Love ⁣,⁣ Momma⁣ ⁣⁣ #fosteringlove #fostercareawarenessmonth #may #fostercare #fostermom #fosterparents #fostering #foster #singlefostermom #singlefostermomma #boymom #helpingkids #preschoolers #momofboys #singlemom #momlife #parenting #parent #nationalfostercareawarenessmonth #speakupforfosterkids

The differences in pattern between the two types of sucking may account for the different effects on craniofacial development. Nutritive sucking is necessary for nutrition, strengthening craniofacial muscles, and neurological development. In contrast, non-nutritive sucking (NNT), typically results in orofacial myofunctional disorders (tongue thrusts, mouth breathing, lip sucking, etc.) (source: Silva M., Manton D., Oral Habits: The Dental Effects and Management of Nutritive and Non-Nutritive Sucking, 2014) #myomonday #orofacialmyology #myofunctionaltherapy #omt #thumbsucking #dentalhabits #breakthehabits #helpingkids #loudounmyo

@avenuesforjustice youth have no safety net, even before COVID hit. ⁠ ⁠ AFJ is now expanding its program for ATI and at-risk youth to provide on-line job training with certification:⁠ - Digital Literacy - learning the basics with certification⁠ - OSHA 30 Construction Safety - 30-hr certification required for all NYC construction workers⁠ - Food Handlers - with Dept of Health certification⁠ - Microsoft - advanced certification⁠ - Real estate sales license⁠ ⁠ AFJ keep expanding training on-line and at our centers long after COVID so that our youth have a second chance to succeed, even in a crisis.

It’s Natasha, Boris Mom. I wanted to say THANK YOU for your support of my son’s efforts! Your likes, encouraging messages and heartfelt donations to Pediatric Cancer Research foundation make a positive difference for kids who receive support from the pediatric cancer research foundation. Boris and I have had quite a few priceless conversations over the last couple of months about how precious time and health is, about his reason WHY he wanted to do this fundraiser for other kids, about joy of having family members around, about finding happiness in tiny moments of togetherness.. I want to thank you for those conversations with my son too. . . Over the last 2.5 months I have mailed out over a hundred bracelets. There were times we had to wait on paracord to be delivered, school and work kept us busy, and Boris had to take breaks to heal a couple of his blisters 😆 If you haven’t received your bracelets yet, please know it WILL be mailed to you. A few packages are at my house, awaiting postage and drop off. Despite (or because of 😄) quarantine this spring has been quite busy and we love it ❤️ and some things takes me much longer to complete. Thank you so much for your patience. Big hug to you all!

For the last two months I have been following the story of this brave little girl and her amazing mama and big brother. Mia. An absolute warrior. She beat odds while battling. She smiled everyday. She laughed and she loved life. . You can see more of Mia’s story on Instagram by searching miagracestrong. . I’m heartbroken to announce that two days ago, DIPG warrior, Mia, passed away... Mia loved her family and will be loved and remembered by so many... In Mia’s memory Boris would like to make 25 survival bracelets and donate all cash proceeds from the bracelets ($250) directly to Mia’s mom via PayPal. Each bracelet costs $10. If you would like to buy a bracelet please DM me. The bracelets will be shipped to you for free (US territory). . We will forever remember this sweet girl for her sassy personality, and her love for Disney. . . DIPG stands for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. It is a brain tumor found part of the brain stem called the pons. The pons control all essential functions like the heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, eye movement, eye sight, and balance. Because of the location of the tumor, DIPG takes all these functions away. . DIPG has a 0% survival rate, and is terminal upon diagnosis. When diagnosed, most kids are given 9-12 months. DIPG is heartbreaking and horrific. Today, and everyday, we recognize this cancer. We recognize that we need not only a cure, but a decent treatment.

AFJ Helps Single Mom Power Up during COVID⁠ ⁠ Before COVID, Aida traveled two miles everyday to drop off her one-year-old at child care, and then traveled back two miles to attend her junior year in high school. Now under quarantine with a family of six in a one-bedroom apartment, she’s even busier. AFJ dropped off a laptop, groceries, and baby clothes to help Aida juggle being a single mom while joining our online programs. And Aida joins everyday. She’s on the phone with her Court Advocate daily, has daily tutoring from an AFJ volunteer, takes part in AFJ’s weekly Creative Writing class and podcast rap session with AFJ and Teen Empower, and has mental health coaching. Aida wants to be a nurse someday and help others - the same way AFJ has helped her.

Thank you you SO MUCH for all your support to my fundraiser! I am deeply moved by your care and attention. Your donations fund research that brings better treatments and cures to children with cancer. . . Alex Lemonade Stand Foundation also provides emotional, financial and logistical support to childhood cancer families that makes their challenges more manageable. Programs like SuperSibs and Travel For Care have an immediate impact on families dealing with a childhood cancer diagnosis. . . If you haven’t received your bracelet yet please know that I am working on it and you will receive it soon! If you have any questions, please send me a direct message and my mom will reply to it. Thank you again for all your support!

Where in the world is #carmensandiego ? I just loved the outfit I chose for @mommiesinneedorg silent auction last year! This organization is one of the most amazing #nonprofitorganization I’ve ever seen! Started almost 8 years ago when my friend @hotmessmomlifestyle decided no other mom will go through what she went when she got sick and had no help with her 18 months old tween daughters. After that a friend of her went through the same thing and she without thinking it twice started racing money to hire a babysitter for her friend and that’s how Mommies In Need just started! So if you ever want to help this is Ana maxing option that will help tons of moms focus on their healing process while their kids are well talking care of. MIN nannies are trained to work under hard circumstances in which mommy has been sick for a long period of time and kids had suffer, are stresses and acting out. This Angels help around the house with small every day chores, keep company to mommies and mainly make the kids days fun and interactive, this Angels keep them safe and happy while mommy is getting stronger to go back to them. I just love @mommiesinneedorg #donations #giveback #freechildcare #betheirhands #fuckcancer #helpingkids #momswithcancer #noprofit #nonprofitsofinstagram
