For a couple of years we have used the working title - Family Care Center - for the home we are building for the abandoned children. We recently decided upon the real name for the facility - Sasha's Home. Sasha is the "loving" nickname for either Alexander or Alexandra, making Sasha's Home a great name for both boys and girls.
The logo for Sasha's Home is fully Ukrainian with rich cultural and religious symbols - especially the egg - a recognizable symbol of new life (think Easter and resurrection). The words of Jesus serve as our motto - "Let the Little Children Come to Me." We want to welcome these precious children and let them know that though their parents may have abandoned them, they are loved and accepted by Jesus and his people.
We are still looking for people to provide financial support to complete the construction of Sasha's Home. If you have not purchased a tile in the Garden of Friends please consider doing so soon. See the post from February 2007 entitled Garden of Friends for more information.
