This week’s summer camp can only be described with one word: heart-wrenching. These have been the neediest kids we have had so far. Many of them do not even have proper clothing.

One of the problems we’ve faced this week is the kids having gastro issues. We have breakfast, lunch, and back to their regular eating routines.

We don’t always get to know the specifics about their home lives or parents. However, we did find out about one five year old girl. She lives in a crisis center with her two younger siblings: a three-year old and willingly shares with anyone around her.

One of the boys has barely said a word or interacted with anyone. He sits through activities and the level of distrust he has for the adults in his life.

It has been an honor to put together bags with goodies for the campers each week. Each week we try to think of what each child needs and would benefit the most. We were able to give those kids a little extra.

I wish from the deepest parts of my heart that we were able to give each child a whole wardrobe, new shoes, or provide them with all their school supplies. I wish I could adopt all of them and keep on providing for them.
