A Commission for the Children's Home of Wyoming Conference to commemorate 100 years of service.
Childhood has always been a time of imagination, exploring, creating, dancing n the rain. But what if the rain comes with too much pain and hurt to be able to dance? Too many children miss their opportunity for innocence. Simple joys lost to fear, sadness, anger, guilt.
From 1912 to 2012, the world has changed around us, but basic needs remain the same. For 100 years, the Children's Home has provided loving care and new opportunities for the children of our community. Children
who have experienced too much pain
to be able to laugh at the simple joys
of life, too much hurt to play unfettered.
The Children's Home continues to fight
for a a way to give it back, that
opportunity for innocence, for simple joy,
and dancing in the rain. To trust, to love,
to laugh...to rediscover innocence lost.
