  1. Suz, your heart for young moms is amazing and inspiring. It is my sincere hope that we will one day get to meet, and you can get to know some of our beautiful
    girls in person. You have blessed them from a distance, and somehow that makes it even more special. Many of our girls have no one in their life who loves them the way they deserve to be loved, so it means a lot to them to be supported and encouraged as you are doing. Last night was “moms night out”, a parenting class, but also a chance for our teen moms to just be together, with dinner and child are provided. Right before we ate I sat with a group of girls in the playroom…one a former gang member, another a runaway, one who has no papers and can’t even get a job legally, another who hesitates as she speaks, the result of a learning disability, or her disrupted home environment… I’m not sure. But they all have one thing in common. A deep desire to build a better life for the little ones crawling at their feet than what they grew up with themselves. Thank you for helping them have that opportunity. Thank for believing in them.
    Merry Christmas,
    Lisa Steven
    Executive Director, Hope House of Colorado

    • Thank you Lisa. I wish I could do more! I dream of founding/working for/supporting an organization like yours only in my area. Until that time comes, I will watch, support, research and do what I can for organizations like yours. Your message made me cry. My life would have been so very different if I had access to someone like you, an organization like yours, at that vulnerable time in my life.

      Happy Holidays to you, your staff and all your moms and their beautiful children. I have many friends and family in your area so I am hoping to get out there in 2014. Perhaps you can give me a tour and teach me even more!

      Cheers.
