Our Ingane Forever Home is now open in Cape Town! This is the culmination of months of planning and dreaming, with our South African team and partners all over the world. Each child who comes to the Ingane Forever Home will know what it means to be a much loved son or daughter. They will grow up with siblings and an extended family support system. They will receive the best medical care, early interventions, therapy, structure, and education. As we celebrate this new family beginning, we want to share some photos of the Forever Home with you!
Our amazing team moved us in (during the pouring rain!) to prepare for our newest Forever Family. Each room was carefully planned to welcome our children with love.
Within a week, we welcomed our first baby boy, and the Forever Home now has two little ones who will grow up in the love and care of family. There is something incredibly sacred about welcoming the first child into a new Forever Home.
Thank you for partnering with us to rescue more children and offer them the very best medical, educational, emotional, and nutritional care! This Forever Home inherited a chicken and coop, and our family is thrilled to check for fresh eggs each morning. Our kids think that Hei Hei is the best pet ever and we look forward to lots of egg dishes on the table.
In addition, our Ingane Forever Home has a beautiful garden, and even some vertical farming that will be filled with teachable moments for our kids as they learn to harvest lettuce and herbs right outside their door. And, as always, the garden is filled with safe spaces for our children to explore, imagine, and play.
Thank you for partnering with us to rescue children and create families!
