Our work of mending in this world never ends...

 

Dear friends,
Thank you, to each of you, for helping us in this work of mending.  Thank you for caring about Warm Hearth.  

I'm attaching our Annual Report for 2012.  Enjoy the stories, the creative ways people have given, the photographs (special thanks to Chris Kitahara) and the poems -- all in honor of our residents.    

Here is an excerpt from the Annual Report: 

Our work of mending carries on, and carries us.  We have found paradise scattered in and throughout our daily lives, in ordinary and humble moments of weaving carpets, making meals, writing "thank you's," updating files, tending to the house, bathing bodies, planting seeds.  

We have also recognized flowers of paradise in extraordinary moments.  Many of our residents graduated from a three-year university program in June.  In April, five us of travelled to Armenia to support the staff in the homecoming of Anna and Sassoon.  

Our staff in Armenia guide our residents with love, and ever-deepening understanding.  They also have made tremendous strides this year in garnering support from local individuals and organizations.  Their reaching out on behalf of our residents is a testament of their love and commitment to our residents and home.  

It has been a year of rejoicing.  So much that we have long strived for has come to fruition.  Our home life has a rhythm.  Our residents are all safe.  Our staff are well-trained, wise and committed.  And you, our supporters, are loyal, passionate and enjoy tending to this garden of a home we all share in Armenia.  My heart is full and grateful.  
 
Sincerely, for us all,
Natalie
