Art heals hurt children. It truly does. We see it happen with almost every new child who joins our family. Before they came to us, our children were orphaned, abandoned, abused, or worse. Some were sold; others were forced into labor; most had lost their sense of childhood. But when when we give them a blank canvas and and a brush or crayons, and then ask them to draw to their heart's desires, they are capable of creating art of great emotional depth and extraordinary beauty. They are children once again.
