Transition Homes Update

Christmas at Heather's with all the kids/siblings
Christmas at Heather's with all the kids/siblings

Well, 2020 has been a bit different than we anticipated in this area as in every other area in the world! We anticipated working more with the Chiang Mai orphanage in providing care to children transitioning home or being adopted to other countries, but both those programs were impacted by COVID-19. We did work with Faithful Heart Foundation to provide transition homes for 4 teen girls. Two of the girls lived with Butsaba and Jay and transitioned to a long term foster home in May, where they are doing well. 

The other two girls, May and Ben, lived with Heather. The day after Thanksgiving, May moved in with her older sister and brother-in-law and has been enjoying their time together. We worked with Faithful Heart Foundation to provide a water system consisting of a water pump, a tank and a filtration system so they can access clean water for showering and washing clothes. We also provided assistance with household items such as a stove, a sink, a bathroom water heater and even helped paint the house so it feels like new! We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with the family as part of our Building Family Dreams program for 2021. 

Ben will live with Heather until she finishes 9th grade in April, when she will transition to living with her sister Uiy and niece and nephews (including baby Kam Pii, born on November 25). Her sister and the baby spent the Christmas holidays with them while the other kids stayed with their grandparents. Uiy is nearly done with a sewing course and has become an amazing seamstress so we are sure she will have no problem getting work to sustain the family will continued assistance from Faithful Heart Foundation and our Building Family Dreams program. 

We anticipate more short-term placements in 2021 and thank you for your support!
