My husband and I are starting a small project in Bulgaria, where two of our kids were born and lived until 2015 (when we adopted them).  We wanted to find a way to do something for the kids who will never be adopted.  Our aim is to build a safe place to land with skills that will equip them to look after themselves and thrive.  Most of the kids are Roma, a minority in Bulgaria and one that is persecuted pretty mercilessly.  The stats are grim for kids leaving 'care'.  3/4 of them will be trafficked for sex or crime ranging from petty theft to drugs.  The same proportion will be dead by age 21.  

Our son Nick (16) and I traveled back to Bulgaria a few weeks ago to look for property and reconnect with the folks we know.  We're planning another trip in April.  We'd love your support for this project - whether that means sharing around your networks, making a gift, or volunteering to come and help on the project.

Thanks a bunch, guys.
