My Indian Family

I currently foster 12 children in India. I live in Anchor Home with my 12 kids plus 6 caregivers and my co-foster Brittany. My 11 kids have such fun and interesting personalities and I would love for you to get to know them through my blog!

Sarah’s Covenant Homes is run completely by donations. It costs us $300/month to provide meals, clean water, quality caregivers, medical care, and a safe home for one child. Most of my children need monthly sponsors to come alongside us and make a difference in their lives. Sponsorship starts as low as $15/month and go up to the full amount they need. If you feel called to help sponsor one of my kids please email me at colleenawilliams22 at gmail.com for more information.

Caden 

Caden quite the charmer! Everyone who meets him falls in love. He has a rare skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). He lacks the protein that keeps the layers of his skin together causing painful blisters and wounds. Caden has painful daily dressing changes but is one of the happiest kids I know. He is quite the flirt and had all of us wrapped around his finger. Caden loves to play, scoot around the house, and is so lose to walking. He is a funny kid and likes to cause mischief.  For more information about EB please visit the DEBRA International Website. Caden is fully funded and always needs in-kind donations of wound care supplies!

Penny

If I had to choose one word to describe Penny it would be joy. This little girl has a soul full of joy. Penny can usually be found doing her exercise routines on the floor: spinning herself in circles, rolling from one side of the room to the other, or doing her yoga moves. Penny’s laugh can be heard most days throughout the house and her smile spreads easily. If you’re every unhappy just 10 minutes with Penny can change that! Penny’s care is fully funded!

Valor

Valor is a gigglebox! He loves to go on walks, being read books, and our nightly worship time. Valor doesn’t like when I make him sit up in his wheelchair for too long. He can be found most days hanging outside in his wheelchair or beanbag, sometimes awake and sometimes snoozing. He recently had a back surgery that has made it so much more comfortable for him to sit in his wheelchair and his quality of life has improved drastically! Valor’s care is fully funded!

My Caregivers

I could not survive without the 7 women who work in my home to make sure the kids needs are being meet. They love the kids they take care of like their own and amaze me every day with their quiet strength. They bring me chai in bed and make sure I’m eating enough. We pray, laugh, and cry together. I simply would not survive without these wonderful women!
