Meet Our Pearls

A tiny grain of sand finds its way under an oyster shell, and it is so irritating that the oyster covers the irritant with a secretion. The longer the irritation is there, the more the oyster coats it. Eventually this grain of sand becomes a beautiful, smooth, shiny pearl.

We take our tiny grains of children and cover their hurt, abandonment and pain with love, community and acceptance.
