Getting Mother’s Day back

Post Summary: 

Armenia has a system where children whose parents can’t support them because of poverty are sent to government institutions. Yerazik’s four oldest children were institutionalized.

Five years ago, World Vision began working with parents to build more stable homes and bring the children back!

For many, Mother’s Day can be complicated, but this year join us in celebrating with an Armenian mother who was able to bring all of her children home.

My relationship with Mother’s Day has been complicated.

After I lost my mom when I was 18, I felt like I’d lost Mother’s Day. More than a decade later, my son Jack, and later my daughter Margaret, came along and redeemed the holiday for me, filling it with promise for the future.
