With joyful hearts we share that our Garret McGann Malibongwe Forever Home is officially open in Cape Town! This newest Acres of Love Forever Home will allow us to rescue six more children who have been orphaned or abandoned in South Africa. They will be welcomed into a family home with loving house parents and the very best medical, educational, emotional, and nutritional care. Each child will receive early intervention therapies to address developmental delays and past malnutrition.
Our team has been working around the clock to furnish and prepare this beautiful single story home for our newest Forever Family. It sits on a large lot with a grassy lawn for our children to run and play. It’s located in a safe neighborhood close to important amenities like schools, medical clinics, and support services.
The living areas have comfortable sofas and South African art on the walls, including framed artwork our older children made. They were so excited to add personal touches of warmth and beauty to welcome new babies into our Acres of Love extended family.
And, as with each of our Forever Homes, there is a large dining table ready for healthy meals and quality family time.
The bedrooms are ready to welcome children with warm bedding, soft pillows, and stuffed toys to snuggle.
These beautiful rooms will become a place of safety, healing and belonging. Now that this Forever Home is officially open, we can begin to welcome children designated to us by the local courts.
Thank you for joining with us to rescue children and create families! We are incredibly thankful for the partners who have come alongside our work to make this new Forever Home a reality.
