We’ve gotten a bit behind on our introductions of new kids at Precious Kids Center. We have grown so quickly, so we have many new friends that have yet to be introduced. Stay tuned for more posts introducing all of our new precious ones.
These last few years, God has really placed the fate of older children with disabilities on my heart. When we first started, the target was younger children because it is easier to start early intervention to be able to provide the kids with the best care possible.
As the years go by, my eyes have been opened to the fate of older children. Once they pass school age there is little support for them. There is no where for them to go to learn and they usually just end up being left to fend for themselves at home or wander around unattended. This is most dangerous for the older girls, who are very vulnerable and often are easily taken advantage of by the men in their communities.
Here are some of the stories of some of the newer adult residents at Precious Kids Center. Through working with them through their traumas of their past we have seen not only the importance of reaching those who we can early, but also being open to serving the adults with disabilities that we cross paths with.
