5 quotes that illustrate a mother’s love

sponsored children and mothers share aspirations and reasons to be grateful this Mother’s Day

Whether you’re a caregiver, guardian, father or mother – you want what’s best for your children. Mothers living in poverty are no different. Where the difference lies is that they often don’t have the resources to set their children up for success. That’s where our supporters come in. They help give our mothers hope that their children can have an easier life than they did.

Enjoy these photos and quotes from mothers and children around the world.

When my 3rd child was 3 months old I saw an add for Children International on TV needing sponsors.
That was February 1989!
I have been a sponsor “mom” for 3 individual boys through these 32 years.
I’ve been blessed by knowing I was helping in part with their families as well as the children!
Thank you for all you do in the name of Jesus!

P.S. I have 6 children of my own also and know the love and dreams parents have for each of their children.
